Sen. Martha McSally Says She Was Raped While in Air Force

U.S. Sen.

Martha McSally revealed she was raped by a superior officer during her time in the Air Force.

She disclosed the incident during a Senate hearing surrounding the armed services' efforts to prevent sexual assault.

She explained she didn't go to her supervisors because she didn't feel they would have done anything to her assailant.  "Like so many women and men, I didn't trust the system at the time.

I blame myself, I was ashamed and confused, and I thought I was strong but felt powerless," McSally said.

The freshman Republican senator spent more than two decades in the military, and is the  first female fighter pilot to fly in combat .  Last year, she told  the Wall Street Journal  she was sexually abused by her track coach while in high school.  Additional reporting from  Newsy affiliate CNN .
