Senator Al Franken Defends Jamie Leigh Jones

After Halliburton subsidiary, Kellog Brown and Root (KBR), tragically raped Jamie Leigh Jones, she fought to have them held accountable in court. She was stopped by the contract she signed with Halliburton (mistake) which called for binding, secret arbitration. After four years of litigation to get her day in court, Senator Al Franken added an amendment to the 2010 Defense Appropriations Bill, that will outlaw hiring any contractor that requires binding, secret arbitration in cases of sexual harassment or assault (seems reasonable but the KBR attorney didn't think so).




This is what a Senator is supposed to do to protect our citizens. Imagine what would have happened if a Republican had been elected to Al Franken's Senate Seat in Minnesota?
