The real scoop on the Palin/Rape Kit brouhaha

Newsbusters covers the whole thing in great detail.

I had postulated that rape victims might have been sent bills but not pressed to pay them if their insurance companies didn't cover it.

Turns out that there was ONE rape in Wasilla during the time period between Palin becoming mayor and the state law going into effect (requiring local law enforcement to pick up the tab for rape kits). And that victim was not charged for her rape kit.

Another tempest in a teapot.

Repeat: Neither Palin herself, not the town of Wasilla on her behalf, billed any rape victim for a rape kit.

NEXT: Palin's overdue library books! And photographic proof that Todd Palin drove nearly 200 miles with one tire under-inflated! And this just in: Piper sometimes colors outside the lines!
