6500 rape kits untested statewide, awaiting federal funds.-Seattle Times

It is outrageous that the Federal Government has not delivered the monies needed and promised by law to do this. While we spend billions on military gear without batting an eye, women who have been raped in our state (and elsewhere) await justice. Please let Derek Kilmer, Patty Murray Maria Cantwell and others know this needs to get done.
