Vitter turns his back on rape survivor who asks why he opposed Franken amendment

Sen. David Vitter (R-LA) was confronted at a townhall meeting in Baton Rouge by a woman who identified herself as a rape survivor. The woman wanted to know why Vitter opposed Sen. Al Franken's amendment to the defense appropriations bill that would prohibit the government from doing business with companies who require their employees to sign arbitration agreements for cases of sexual assault and discrimination.

Vitter did not distinguish himself with honor.

How is this man a United States senator?
