Election getting foul already
Facts: back in 2000, Alaska enacted a law barring police departments from charging victims for rape investigation kits. Sounds logical: if somebody shoots at me, I wouldn't expect to pay for the ballistics test. A reporter for a small town newspaper hunting for the "other side" interviews their police chief, who opposes the bill because the cost to the town is high, they like to bill the victim's medical insurance "when possible," and the offender ought to be made to pay the cost as restitution. OK, arguments, but you didn't convince me.
The significance of this: eight years later someone deduces that Sarah Palin (whom the reporter did not interview) was mayor of the town then and had hired that police chief. Title of posting: "Sarah Thinks Rape Victims Should be Charged for Their Own Rape Kits." Ending of it: "The more we learn about Sarah Palin, the more we learn about how corrupt she is."

UPDATE: did a quick google and found other postings such as "BREAKING: Palin Charged Rape Victims For Their Rape Kits??!!" "Sarah Palin Revictimized Rape Victims" etc.
