U.S. Sen. Chambliss: Military sexual assaults are caused by 'the hormone level created by nature'

"The young folks who are coming into each of your services are anywhere from 17 to 22 or 23. Gee whiz, the hormone level created by nature sets in place the possibility for these types of things to occur. So we've got to be very careful how we address it on our side. But guys, we are not doing our job. You're not doing yours, and we are not doing ours with the rates we are seeing on sexual assaults."

- U.S. Sen. Saxby Chambliss talks at a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing about military sexual assaults. While the Georgia Senator did call upon the military's top brass to take action, he did include this highly questionable explanation in his remarks. (via The Huffington Post)
