Air Force General Investigated for Sexual Assault

The Air Force is investigating sexual assault accusations against an unnamed four-star general. The general, who is now retired, was on active duty at the time of the alleged assault. The allegations first surfaced on the independent Air Force blog John Q. Public, which reported that the Air Force had received a complaint from a female officer who accused her commander of using his authority "to coerce sexual contact" in three separate incidents.
