Here you go: Sarah Palin signed off on a budget document that forced rape victims to pay for their own investigations. It appears it was the idea of the police chief that Palin hired after firing another one for insufficiently obsequious ass-kissing. It’s now getting close to impossible to believe that this went on without Palin’s knowledge.

Simple terms: She hired a new police chief. He said, “Hey, let’s make rape victims pay for their own investigation!” And she blessed that misogynist idea with her signature.

A picture of Sarah Palin is becoming clear—she is the Queen Sister Punisher, who puts herself above other women by using sexual paranoia to degrade us.
