Colleges That Botch Rape Investigations Could Face Millions in Fines

A truly motley crew of Senators has introduced a bill that would crack down on schools that fail to address campus sexual assault.

New Hampshire "turned pink" after November's election, as the New York Times rather cutely puts it: after new congresswomen Ann McLane Kuster and Carol Shea-Porter are sworn into office on Thursday along with Senators Kelly Ayotte and Jeanne Shaheen, the state will be the first to send a ladies-only delegation to… » 1/02/13 6:50pm 1/02/13 6:50pm
