Sarah Palin and The Rape Kits......
This started with the discovery that Bible Spice had helped balance the Wasilla City budget by charging rape victims $500 for the cost of the rape kit used in their own investigations.
David's commentary was:
In this week's GYWO, no means no, unless you have 500 bucks to sink into your own rape investigation. When the guys start looking into this whole rape kit situation, lots of questions come to light. Most pressing among them being, just how into rape are McCain and Palin anyway? How much money should your average rape victim keep in checking? And is Wasilla really the premier destination for globe-trotting rapists?
Well, Bible Spice is not alone in her skepticism of rape victims. Rape kits are also billed to serving military women.....who are raped by fellow soldiers at double the rate of civilians. The prosecution rate of those reported rapes (80% go unreported......) is 8%. Civilian rates are 40%.
Luckily, there is an amendment fixing this situation in the military due to take place in December. Wasilla?
Anyway, if you think that "Sarah Palin and The Rape Kits" sounds like a punk band?
Right you are.
Here is their new release, "Lipstick on a Pig".
