As the Tailhook scandal moves through the courts, a new harassment case further tarnishing the reputation of the military's manhood may be brewing.The U.S. Military Academy at West Pointis investigating five football players who allegedly groped 15 female cadets during a pep rally on October 20. The women told investigators they were brushed across the breasts as they and other cadets ran past a cordon of West Point players during a football rally turned "spirit run." West Point officials were quick to note differences between this incident and Tailhook. "This is not another Tailhook. This is vastly different. These were students meeting to have a spirit-enhancing event. There was no alcohol involved. It was not repetitive," said Lt. Gen. Howard D. Graves, West Point's superintendent.
