Bob Filner reportedly targeted victims of military sexual assault while serving as chair of the House Veterans Affairs Committee. The women suspect they were seen as "easy prey" because they've been taught not to speak up against assailants in positions of power.
Corrections officers in the state hope that posting statistics online will help ensure that cases are properly reported and investigated -- as well as draw attention to an issue that's often hidden from view.
Filner's lawyer claims that if his client had received sexual assault training, he would not be facing the current allegations. But a former city official says Filner's office actually decided to cancel that training.
