Photos of female USA marines shared on Facebook without consent

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand wants Senate hearing on Marine Corps nude photo scandal

The photo scandal surrounding the U.S. Marine Corps, is expanding to other branches of the military.

Numerous reports surrounding the Facebook group titled "Marines United" note that the original "Marines United" group has been removed from Facebook.

As seen in the above photos, a retired Marine named James LaPorta broke the story about the Marines scandal, and is reaching out to other victims.

"When I hear allegations of Marines denigrating their fellow Marines, I don't think such behavior is that of true warriors or war fighters ... unfortunately, it appears that some Marines may have forgotten these fundamental truths, and instead have acted selfishly and unprofessionally through their actions on social media".

House Armed Services Committee Chairman Mac Thronberry (R-Texas) told Military Times that committee members will speak to Neller about the investigation behind closed doors.

The site, called AnonIB, has a dedicated board for military personnel that features dozens of threaded conversations of men, many of whom ask for "wins" - naked photographs - of specific female service members, often identifying the women by name or by where they are now stationed.

Meanwhile, a former Marine, Erin Kirk-Cuomo, said servicewomen have been reporting websites like "Marines United" for more than 10 years but were ignored.

The marines top commander described the revelations as an "embarrassment".

But the message board on Anon-IB remains publicly accessible, and indicates that such practices extend throughout the military.

The Air Force, Army, Marines and Navy made statements Thursday in response to CNN's requests for comments on the new report.

"Maybe he would post some".

"Any wright patt wins? I believe this is a start to a better and safer Marine Corps". Some of the pictures were taken without the victims' knowledge or consent.

More than 30 states have so-called "revenge porn" laws that prohibit the distribution of explicit photographs without the subject's consent.

"The alleged behaviour is inconsistent with our values".

The Facebook page containing the images is private.

The Democrat on Wednesday said the Senate Committee on Armed Services should discuss the matter.

The Naval Criminal Investigative Service launched an investigation and urges whistleblowers to come forward with information.

"We will not be silenced", said Erika Butner, a former marine.

"As a Marine Corps veteran, I am disheartened and disgusted with this scandal", she said. Other images are thought to have been consensual, but posted without permission.
