Four Olympic gymnasts testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday to tell their stories of being sexually abused as young athletes by the U.S. team doctor. The testimony was part of the legislative push for a bipartisan anti-sex abuse bill, which was introduced by Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein and co-sponsored by Republican Sen. Susan Collins. The bill would require amateur athletics governing bodies to immediately report sexual abuse allegations to law enforcement. See the video for more from the senators and gymnasts.
