Government Contractors and Sexual Assault

I have seen this story mentioned a few times, though not in the mainstream press.  Ed Brayton here gives a good summary of a case where KBR employees beat and raped a co-worker, and because of arbitration rules in her contract, she had great difficulty getting any legal redress.  Al Franken has proposed an amendment to fix this situation, and thirty Republicans voted against it.
