Objects to remark

To the editor:

I was quite offended and disturbed by the remarks of Gary Waechter in the Sunday edition of The Messenger. Mr. Waechter obviously has no understanding of rape. In Mr. Waechter’s words, “the two people have to be held accountable for what they did.” The victim of rape is just that, a victim. To even consider that the victim be held accountable is ludicrous. If Mr. Waechter believes his own statement, he has no business in government.
