Making Rape Victims Pay for Rape Kits

Jakob Alperin-Sheriff has the goods on Sarah Palin.

He spokesman denies, of course, that she had anything to do with the fact that the Wasilla police department charged rape victims for rape kits while she was mayor. You know Wasilla is a big place and a mayor can't know about every little detail known to the state legislature which forced Wasilla to pay for the rape kits.

The Police Chief she fired noted that before she became mayor, they were bought with money authorised the public safety contingency line item.

Now Jakob Alperin-Sheriff has found her signature on a budget report where spending from the public safety contingency line item totaled $250 which is less than the cost of one kit (on page 65 of the report).

Sarah Palin signed off on the budget report.
