Why would a town charge the victim for a rape kit?
From Jim Tankersley comes a link to an AP story. It's a fact that while Palin was mayor, Wasilla, AK charged victims or the hospital exams and associated services rendered after a rape. In fact, in 2000, after Palin had been in office for four years, then-Alaska governor Tony Knowles signed a bill outlawing the practice statewide, aimed specifically at Wasilla. Why would a woman who cared about the rights of other women, and had the power as mayor to stop such a policy, countenance such municipal behavior?
