Yes, you heard that right, under Sarah Palin’s ‘rule’, women who were raped in the town of Wasilla, Alaska, were forced to PAY FOR THEIR OWN RAPE EXAMINATIONS.
As many of you know, Alaska suffers from a particularly high rape/sexual assault rate (2.5 times national average), which could perhaps be put down to a shortage of women, or to a sense of isolation amongst men (and thus less social pressure to behave morally). However, while Sarah Palin was mayor, women wo were victims of rape were, bizarrely, forced to pay for their own exam, which can cost as much as $1,000 (!!!).
Do we need more evidence that Sarah Palin does not represent women??
