Sarah Palin’s Pick For State Attorney General Allegedly Defends Marital Rape

Sarah Palin. Remember her? Despite Levi Johnston’s TV talk show circuit tour having ended, the Alaska governor is still under the microscope. Wayne Anthony Ross, Palin’s nominee for Alaska’s state attorney general, is facing accusations of supporting marital rape. Leah Burton, a veteran lobbyist on children’s issues and domestic violence, told the Alaska State Judiciary Committee that Ross said in a 1991 speech — given in front of the “father’s rights” group Dads Against Discrimination — “If a guy can’t rape his wife, who’s he gonna rape?” Hmm, is this the kind of “common sense” Jack was talking about? Burton also claims Ross once said, “If a woman would keep her mouth shut, there wouldn’t be an issue with domestic violence.” Ross denies making these statements — “I don’t talk like that!” he says — but rumor has it Palin may withdraw her nomination in order to save face.
