"To do that to any rape victim is horrendous, but to do that with a 92-year-old woman is totally abhorrent," said Beth Knake, executive director of Project Help, which has helped the woman since she was raped two years ago.
Knake, the co-founder of Project Help, and Celeste Infante, a counselor who has worked closely with Twardokus' victim, said the woman felt humiliated and angry.
People who commit rape do so because they look for vulnerability and a way of control the victim, Knake said.The assault makes the victim feel powerless.
"It's an act of power and control, the rape is, and when the media prints the picture and name of the victim, it's again power and control that are taken away from the victim," Knake said.
The victim didn't want to comment on what happened and asked Project Help to speak on her behalf.
Knake said she has talked to the woman about her options and they are considering a phone call or letter to FOX explaining how the station's actions affected her.

In 1986, Beth Knake ran the Crisis hotline at the David Lawrence Center. The hotline was available from 9am to 5pm on Monday through Friday. Beth knew the hotline needed to be 24/7. Beth proceeded to take the hotline on as its own community non-profit and thus beginning Project HELP's great journey. Beth - Being a pioneer in the 80's & 90's, worked diligently with the Violence Against Women's Act and Movement as well as with the Victims of Crime Act. She worked continuously and tirelessly with the State and many Statewide Committees of Action and was a founder in the creation of the Florida Council Against Sexual Violence. The Florida Council Against Sexual Violence is now the State Certifying Agency for all Rape Crisis Centers in the State of Florida. Project HELP was one of the first Rape Crisis Centers certified in the state in August 1995. The hotline grew to include the Rape Crisis Center as well as a crisis center offering crisis intervention/counseling and court advocacy to all victims of crime through the Victims of Crime Act. In late 2006 Beth retired from the agency.

Beth Knake, a past president of the Florida Council Against Sexual Violence, questioned the timing of the proposals when Bush could have pushed them during his first term.
She also questioned the morality of linking of the victims' quest for justice to Bush and the Republican Party.
"Political affiliation should be irrelevant to victim issues, especially those involving rape victims," said Knake, who runs the non-partisan Project HELP Crisis Center in Naples.
Critics cite two other examples of recycled proposals being sold as new:
Republican campaign staffers billed an Oct. 1 hospital appearance by Bush as "launching the latest component" of his "I'm a Reader" program to urge mothers to read to their babies.He last "launched" the program in April, nearly seven months ago.
Bush also announced a teacher housing loan program at an Oct. 7 event in Jacksonville, though it had existed for more than a year.
