Roche Controversy

By  | 

Women’s groups are working to keep Air Force Secretary James Roche from becoming the new Army secretary.

They say Roche's handling of the sexual assault scandal at the Air Force Academy showed an indifference to violence against women.

The National Network to End Domestic Violence and the National Coalition to End Sexual Violence are contacting senators who must approve Roche's nomination.

Roche would replace Army Secretary Thomas White. He was fired in
April.
