    Dear Unity, In case you missed it, below is an excerpt of a column I wrote that appeared in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch earlier this week about my work to combat sexual assaults in the military. You can also see video of this week's Senate hearing by clicking HERE, and read about the legislation that I introduced this week on my website. When I was a prosecutor in Kansas City, my job was to fight for justice and safety for all citizens in my community. Equal access to justice under the law is an American value embedded in the fabric of our legal and political system -- the idea that anybody, powerful or not, can have their day in court. Of the many tough cases I prosecuted, rape and sexual assaults were among the most devastating crimes. I held the hands of victims and cried with them. And it was my job to make sure that survivors were able to achieve some small piece of justice, by ensuring those responsible were held accountable...
