On Charging Rape Victims for Their Exam

September 12, 2008 at 3:42 pm 1 comment

Here’s a story involving Palin and Biden:

In 2000, then-Governor Tony Knowles signed a bill in Alaska that ensured law enforcement around the state would pay for the processing of “Rape Kits” – forensics evidence collected in rape cases. Seemed common sense enough. Knowles noted, correctly, that we don’t charge robbery victims the cost of dusting for prints, so why would be charge rape victims the cost of gathering evidence to apprehend their assailant?

Except one little town objected, and had previously refused to foot the bill to solve rape cases – Wasilla, under Mayor Sarah Palin.
 – Huffington Post 09/12/08

Palin approved charging rape victims for their own exam.
Biden passed legislation requiring cities to remove this (idiotic) law.
What’s even more shocking…is that someone voted against Biden’s legislation as recently as 2007 as well as initially in 1994.  Who was it?  Watch to find out or click the links below on Biden’s legislation below.

    When you say “Thanks but no thanks” to Congress but keep nearly three hundred billion dollars in earmarks, you have to spend the money carefully.
    There are too many rape and incest victims in Sarah Palin’s neck of the woods (something about speaking in tongues, I guess), they can’t afford to clean up the mess their own churchgoers make.
    But, that joke about the girl getting raped by an ape was cute!
