McCain and Palin: Both Approved Charging Rape Victims For Medical Exams.

I spoke about this the other day. Here Young Turks have a go at this insane and inhumane practice in Wasilla where rape victims are charged for the forensic tests which the police carry out on them. It costs between $300 and $1200. I can think of no other crime where the victim is asked to pay for the investigation into that crime but, in Wasilla, and in a few other places in the US, this practice still happens.

Joe Biden tried to pass a law in the Senate outlawing this barbaric practice... Guess who voted against it? John McCain.

So Palin did nothing to remove this law whilst Mayor of Wasilla and McCain voted against this practice being outlawed. Unbelievable.
