Re: “State AG finds 6,460 rape kits still sitting in storage”:

Washington state is no better than the Republican-led U.S. Senate when it comes to discounting and ignoring the abuse of women in our country.

Here’s an idea: Let’s just budget the funds necessary for this testing and complete the testing.

Anything less discounts this violent crime against women while affirming our “lesser status” in the eyes of the law.
