Mayor Palin’s Wasilla Rape Tests: Welcoming CNN to RW370 Readership, Wishing Obama Campaign Would Follow Suit

Well, gee whiz, what’s on CNN’s headline list this morning?  Why, it’s the same story about Mayor Palin charging Wasilla’s rape victims for their forensic tests that:

– I published at this blog ten days ago.

– the Boston Herald ran eleven days ago.

– the Obama campaign didn’t care about when I sent it to them the day I found it:

Sent to Obama campaign through webform Sept 11:

The Boston Herald is reporting that as Mayor of Wasilla, AK, Sarah Palin’s office was charging rape victims for the medical tests they needed.  Here is the link to the Herald story: http://news.bostonherald.com/news/2008/view.bg?articleid=1118416&srvc=2008campaign&position=5

Please don’t let the McCain/Palin campaign and the political party that allows brutality like this to proceed in the name of combatting “Big Government” off the hook for this slap in the face to women.

Sadly, I got the following back Sept 13.  All I can say is: Obama campaign manager David Axelrod, you’re slipping.

Dear Friend,

Thank you for sharing your thoughts about the Republican vice-presidential nominee, Governor Sarah Palin of Alaska.  Senator Obama and Senator Biden have welcomed Governor Palin to the race and look forward to debating her and Senator McCain on the critical issues facing our country as the campaign proceeds through the fall.

Barack and Joe believe that we should not be distracted – this election is about big issues and who has the judgment and the independence to tackle America’s challenges.  That’s why Senator Obama has rejected personal attacks on Governor Palin, saying forcefully, “I have said before and I will repeat again: I think people’s families are off limits, and people’s children are especially off limits. This shouldn’t be part of our politics, it has no relevance to Governor Palin’s performance as a governor or her potential performance as a vice president. And so I would strongly urge people to back off these kinds of stories.”

Their records are clear.  Senator McCain has bragged about voting with President Bush over 90% of the time.  Governor Palin hired lobbyists and supported earmarks before she opposed them.  Behind their rhetoric, the McCain-Palin campaign is run and financed by lobbyists and special interests, and has no specific plans to change Washington and address the big issues America faces.  Barack Obama and Joe Biden will continue to focus on fixing the problems that hard working Americans face every day.

Sincerely,

Obama for America
