There is another angle to her not be prosecuted for adultery that the media won't touch with a nine foot pole. Since Don't Ask Don't Tell was repealed and homosexuality is now DoD approved, adultery cases (especially high profile public ones as this one is) will be harder to prosecute. Don't think that the military can't force those down a military court's throat, because they can. My point it they won't, especially against a female officer, and most especially in a high profile case.
Lt Col Broadwell is a West Point graduate. She knows the rules. At the very least, the military could throw the book at her for violating Article 133 of the UCMJ. Don't expect that to happen.
I am boggled at the word “could”. Seems to me it guaran-damn-teed should end her military career.
I haven’t served in the military but in the private business world, you would not pass go or collect $200, you would be out the door.
