Kirsten Gillibrand Admits ‘We May Not Know’ The Actual Rate Of Campus Rape

New York U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand is not sure what ratio of college students are sexually assaulted, she admitted for the first time in an interview with Politico.

The Democrat has been a leading proponent of legislation to address rape in both the military and on college campuses. In the course of her advocacy she has cited the statistic that “1 in 5″ college women experience rape or attempted rape during their time on campus. But Gillibrand quietly scrubbed the ratio from her Senate website recently as the studies backing the claim have come under increased scrutiny.

“You’ve dropped the ‘1 in 5 college women raped’ statistic from your website, which some say is proof this isn’t as big an issue as you make it out. How do you respond?” Politico asked.

“Well, we may not know what the actual rate is, but we know it is prevalent, and we know it’s real,” Gillibrand said.
