Do you have a plan to vote?

Let us tell you the information you need to register and cast a ballot in D.C.

This year, I wrote a series about public sexual assaults in the District, and how victims respond to them. I separated typical victim responses into four categories: freezing, talking back, fighting back, and reporting to police. As of Saturday evening, Miss District of Columbia 2009 Jennifer Corey officially falls in to the exacting physical pain category: According to the Washington Examiner, the District beauty queen winner was slapped in the butt by a group of “spoiled rich preppy kids who think that they are better than you because their dad makes a lot of money.” They were out in Georgetown, if you can imagine. After the third assault, “I just had so much rage against him . . . that I slammed him up against the wall,” Corey said. “[T]here is no reason for a girl to have to worry about being slapped . . . or touched when we go out.”
