Slutwalk Comes To DC

WASHINGTON (WUSA) --- The Slutwalks,which began earlier this year after a Canadian police official said women would be less likely to be raped if they did not dress like sluts, move to Washington this weekend with a rally and march that begins across from the White House Saturday morning.

Organizers of the marches have embraced the term sluts to argue it matters not what a person wears. he or she is not inviting rape.

The protests are also meant to change attitudes, one goal of Maryland State Delegate Ariana Kelly of Bethesda.

"When I was a teenager in Bethesda, I was raped. I went to the emergency room at the advice of The Rape Crisis Center and there I was treated by a doctor, and the emergency room doctor there did not treat me well. He was very critical and judgmental," Kelly said.

FBI Raids Giordano's Gaithersburg House

(WUSA) -- Friday night, the FBI arrived at Gary Giordano's house to execute a search warrant. He is a suspect in Robyn Gardner's disappearance in Aruba.

Earlier Friday, the Aruban solicitor general Taco Stein said authorities there consider him a suspect and that they are seeking a court order Monday to detain him longer.

When we asked if Aruban authorities had asked the FBI to search Giordano's home. Stein replied, "In our request to the American authorities there will probably be something about searching the house. But at this moment that request has not yet reached U.S. authorities. So if that place is being searched it's not on my account."
Stein said they will also need to furnish U.S. authorities with enough information to seek a search warrant from a judge in order to search the home.
