During a virtual fundraiser on Wednesday evening, former Vice President Joe Biden was asked about sexual assault — in the military. Following his virtual women’s town hall, where he notably was not asked about the sexual assault allegation made by former Senate staffer Tara Reade, a woman named Nancy Parrish, who is an advocate of combating sexual assault in the military, asked the presumptive Democratic nominee if he would support “moving the military justice system into the 21st century by empowering experienced military prosecutors to make prosecution decisions for non-military crimes — serious felonies like rape, murder, and child abuse.”
