Obama Faking Rape Statistics?
Obama lies on everything else, so why not this.

President Obama’s latest attempt to shine brightly before America’s college students may be losing some of its luster.
A victim-advocacy group is crying foul over the administration’s latest crisis in need of intervention, claiming the White House’s new campaign to combat sexual assault on campus is touting trumped up statistics for “ideological” reasons.
On Jan. 22, the White House issued a “A Renewed Call to Action to End Rape and Sexual Assault” that establishes a new task force to “protect” college students from what Senior Advisor Valerie Jarrett described as “jarring,” “stunning” and “alarming” rates of sexual assault on campus.
“We need to encourage young people, men and women, to realize that sexual assault is simply unacceptable,” Obama said. “And they’re going to have to summon the bravery to stand up and say so, especially when the social pressure to keep quiet or to go along can be very intense.”
But an organization called Stop Abusive and Violent Environments, or SAVE, is warning the statistics – notably that one in every five women experiences rape or attempted rape in their lifetime, often on college campuses – are artificially inflated and actually do more harm than good.
