WASHINGTON, DC – One Nation, a public policy organization dedicated to promoting commonsense legislative solutions, today called on Senator Claire McCaskill to join Attorney General Josh Hawley’s efforts to secure funding for thousands of untested rape kits. McCaskill recently trivialized Hawley’s efforts despite offering no funding solutions of her own.
“It’s sad to see Claire McCaskill politicizing Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley’s efforts to put sexual predators behind bars by testing unprocessed rape kits, without offering any solutions of her own,” said One Nation President and CEO Steven Law. “McCaskill needs to stop playing politics and get to work on securing federal funding to help Hawley’s efforts to get justice for victims and get sexual predators off our streets.”
To date, McCaskill has not announced any efforts of her own to secure federal funding to assist in the testing of the 4,889 recently uncovered rape kits.
