Speaking at George Mason University’s Antonin Scalia Law School on Thursday, DeVos claimed Obmama’s guidelines regarding how colleges investigate sexual assault aren’t working, which might be code for they are working too well.
DeVos claimed the guidelines do not do enough to address the due process rights of those accused of sexual assault and that the victims of sexual assault, those accused and colleges all lose under the current system.
“It is our moral obligation to get this right,” DeVos said.
DeVos is “valuing the rights of the perpetrator over that of the survivor. When they’re asking for fairness, they’re asking for special rights,” said Annie Clark, 28, of Raleigh, North Carolina, the executive director of End Rape on Campus and an organizer of the protest outside of the event told Reuters.
It should surprise no one that President Donald Trump’s Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos is more concerned with the rights of those accused of sexual assault than those who’ve been assaulted.
After all, she is working for a man who has been accused by multiple women of sexual assault. A man who left no doubt as to his guilt when he was caught on tape bragging about sexually assaulting women.
