Ayotte, Shaheen Join Call For NFL To Have 'Zero Tolerance' For Domestic Violence

New Hampshire’s two U.S. Senators are among 16 female, bipartisan Senators who are urging the commissioner of the NFL to take a zero-tolerance stance toward domestic violence.

Kelly Ayotte and Jeanne Shaheen signed the letter sent to Commissioner Roger Goodell, responding to the recent controversy over former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice.

In the letter, the Senators raise concerns about whether NFL officials knew the severity of Rice’s assault against his then-fiancée Janay Palmer.
