Topeka, already infamous as the home of the Phelps clan, has had another rough month in the national media. And no wonder, given its alarming city-county fight over paying for prosecution of domestic violence cases. A sampling of some of the recent headlines generated by the state capital:
“Cut Government Spending, Support Domestic Violence” — the New Republic
“Enjoy Hitting Your Spouse? Move to Topeka” — Gawker website
“Topeka, Kansas, Is a Domestic-Violence Free-Fire Zone” — TakePart website
“Legalizing domestic violence: Topeka’s ‘terrible’ plan to save money” — the Week magazine
“At Least Tucson’s Not Topeka” — Tucson Weekly
