Heitkamp apologizes for naming sexual assault, abuse victims in newspaper ad

Wednesday 09:58 GMT

This, after some of the women said they did not give permission for the campaign to name them, and others said they'd never experienced abuse.

Lexi Zhorela, 24, told The Associated Press she was listed in the ad because she had been tagged on Facebook by a friend who knew she had been the victim of sexual assault. She said she personally reached out to her campaign but didn't receive a call back.

Wednesday 09:58 GMT

Ms. Heitkamp, a North Dakota Democrat, said Tuesday that her campaign had recently discovered that several of the women’s names provided to her weren’t sexual-assault victims nor had authorized their names to be used in the open letter to her opponent Rep. Kevin Cramer.

After ad gaffe, North Dakota's Heitkamp apologizes in Senate debate

Saturday 10:49 GMT

(Reuters) - North Dakota Democratic U.S. Senator Heidi Heitkamp, facing a tough re-election fight, opened her debate on Thursday with Republican challenger Kevin Cramer by apologizing for a recent ad that named sex assault survivors without their consent.

The ad, intended to highlight her support of women following the brutal debate over a U.S. Supreme Court nominee accused of sexual assault, was an untimely gaffe for Heitkamp as she struggles to hang on to her seat in next month’s election in a state that Republican President Donald Trump won by a landslide in 2016.

'Why was their trust betrayed': Australia apologises to child sex abuse victims

Today 14:31 GMT

The Australian government has formally apologised to victims of child sexual abuse, after a five-year inquiry found governments, schools, sporting clubs, churches, charities and other institutions for decades failed to keep children safe.

“This has been a very difficult journey for many of us – hopefully, this landmark government apology will have its desired effect: to assist in the ongoing healing process of the many who have been impacted by the scourge of child sexual abuse within institutions,” he said.
