The New York Times, via AP, is reporting that as Mayor of Wasilla, Sarah Palin began the practice of billing victims of sexual-assault the cost of their rape-kits. Perhaps this was just budget stupidity, but it could be worse. It seems that the rape kits contain a morning-after pill that clashed with Palin's strict religious views against abortion, even in the case of rape. And if we go up the would-be chain-of-command, John McCain has consistently voted against a bill pushed by Joe Biden that would make states ineligible for federal funds, if they charge these victims for exams and supplies. Keep an eye out for more on this.
