Palin's rape kit controversy


As if Gov. Sarah Palin's --the Republican vice presidential candidate -- view on global warming wasn't scary enough, I've come across another story about her putting that to shame. When Palin was mayor of small-town Wasilla, Alaska, she charged rape victims for rape kits, which contains devices to help extract evidence from women after being assaulted.

The kits could have cost up to $1,000 for victims. Sen. Joe Biden drafted the 1994 Violence Against Women Act which would prohibit states charging for rape kits from receiving federal grant money. Interestingly enough, Sen. McCain voted against the initiative.

Gov. Palin's camps has kept mum on the controversy only to say Palin supports the protection of women against sexual assault. While she was mayor of Wasilla, Eric Croft, a Democratic representative at the time proposed a law requiring the state to provide rape kits free of charge to all assault victims. He met extreme resistance from Wasilla's Police Chief Charlie Fannon because of dissatisfaction the extra money for kits would hurt the town's budget.

There is no definite evidence to show that Palin knew this was happening, but considering how vocal Fannon was against free rape kits and that she was the mayor of the town, it's inconceivable to me that she had no idea.

"I find it hard to believe that for six months a small town, a police chief, would lead the fight against a statewide piece of legislation receiving unanimous support and the mayor not know about it," Croft said to CNN.com.

I find it absolutely frightening that Palin would support charging rape victims for help. For a woman who prides herself on morals and values, shouldn't this be at the top of the list? How can a woman in office not fight for other women who have had one of the most horrific experiences? This is completely outrageous. My dislike and fear of Sarah Palin just continues to grow more and more-- and this story certainly does not help.

The analysis found that the overall incidence of cancer began inching down in 1999, but not until the data for 2005 were analyzed was it clear that a long-term decline was underway.EverQuest goldEverQuest platbuy eq goldeq plateverquest platinumlineage adenalineage 1 adenalineage 2 adenabuy lineage 2 adenalineage ii adenacheap lineage 2 adenawow goldworld of warcraft goldbuy wow goldcheap wow goldwow power levelingwow powerleveling2moons dil2moons goldaion goldbuy aion goldanarchy online creditsanarchy online creditarchlord goldThe take-home message is that many of the things we've been telling people to do to be healthy have finally reached the point where we can say that they are working," Brawley said. "These things are really starting to pay off." Brawley and others cautioned, however, that part of the reduction could be the result of fewer people getting screened for prostate and breast cancers. .buy archlord goldcity of heroes influencecoh influencecity of villains infamycov infamyeve iskeve online iskflyff penyabuy flyff goldflyff moneygaia online goldgaia goldguild wars goldgw goldhellgate london palladiumhero online goldlast chaos goldpirates of the burning sea goldpotbs doubloonrappelz rupeerappelz goldrf online goldstar wars galaxiesswg creditsthe sun onlineThe drop in new cancer diagnoses has been driven largely by declines in many of the leading forms of cancer: lung, prostate and colorectal cancer in men, and breast and colorectal cancer in womenthe sun online goldsword of the new world vissword of the new world goldtabula rasa creditpirates goldPotbs goldtabula rasa creditstales of pirates goldvoyage century goldpirates goldPotbs gold"In addition, the rates at which many other types of cancer are being diagnosed are still increasing, he said, and overall far too many Americans are still getting and dying from cancer.

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For quite a long time, I earn money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my web site to get additional info.
