Dem Rep To Bring Epstein Victim As SOTU Guest

Just in via press release:

Congresswoman Jackie Speier (D-CA), Co-Chair of the Democratic Women’s Caucus, will bring survivor Courtney Wild as her guest to the 2020 State of the Union. Courtney is the namesake of the bipartisan Courtney Wild Crime Victims’ Rights Reform Act of 2019, introduced by Rep. Speier with Reps. Scott Perry (R-PA), Lois Frankel (D-FL), and Mo Brooks (R-AL).

“Courtney’s bravery and dignity in the face of unfathomable treatment by those who should have been fighting for her and the other Epstein survivors, and the resulting miscarriage of justice in that case deserves and demands the nation’s attention” said Rep. Speier, who is also Co-Chair of the Bipartisan Task Force to End Sexual Violence.

“By attending this year’s SOTU as my distinguished guest, Courtney is helping me send a clear message that women are done with being treated as second class citizens in our own country. We are standing up for what is right and to ensure that those who continue to subvert the rule of law and those who fail to hold perpetrators responsible for their malign deeds will not succeed.”
