For more detials see the blog Leah’s Life and a CNN story.

Her record shows us how much value she places a) on law and b) on women.  What will she do when her “values” contradict the law when VP (or G-d forbid, President)?

Update:  See a powerful discussion of this issue at Feministe.

  1. This was already debunked last week. The Wasilla Police Department pays for the rape kits unless the hospitals send the bill to the patient. Who to bill is determined by the hospital, not the state nor the city. An Alaska congressman wrote a bill to prevent victims from even seeing a fee but did not claim that police departments were doing the billing. Gov. Palin does not support charging such things to the victims. Time to spread some truth around and not accuse people of dreadful deeds they didn’t commit.

    Taxpayers should be reimbursed upon conviction or upon confession/proof of a false accuser.
