Rape Kits vs. Mayor Mobile

Just a little note from existenz on the Daily Kos:

And she [Palin] used city money to buy a white Suburban for the mayor’s use — employees sarcastically called it the mayor-mobile. The MSRP for a 1997 Chevy Suburban was about $24,000. For a town with only 6,000 residents, that's a LOT of money. And that's not including insurance, registration, maintenance and gas money. And as DemocraticLuntz pointed out to me yesterday, that $24,000 could have covered the costs of up to 80 RAPE KITS.

Apparently the "mayor-mobile" was a priority for Sarah Palin. Rape victims were not .
