For example, there is Todd Akin who is the U.S. Representative for Missouri’s 2nd Congressional District who is running for the Senate in Missouri against Claire McCaskill who recently made a unbelievable sick comment during a televised interview.
“For what I understand from doctors, if it is a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to shut that whole thing down.”
In certain ways a lot of the people in the Republican Party sort of agree with this outrageous statement. Anyone even using the words legitimate and rape in the same sentence should be in jail. Did he even know what he was saying? There is nothing legitimate about rape and where was he in biology class when they taught about the female body? What the hell exactly can she shut down??
How can this elected official of a form of our government even put two words in a sentence that are completely opposite. Legitimate means legal. Rape is unlawful. They cannot even be put in the same category. Then there are the Republican Conservatives that should be horrified by this statement that even are so jaded into defending their party member by somehow justifying his words.
For example, so called religious actor Stephen Baldwin said, “It’s how in his mind using the words legitimate rape meant something to him scientifically.” WHAT? How does Stephen Baldwin know what is in Todd’s mind ? Baldwin went on to say, they’ve explained it since then. Who?
Instead of letting anyone know what crap he has in his head, he should be focusing on what he needs to do if he really wants that senate job. Like maybe remembering to disclose a really good pension in his financial statement. Just this week Akin’s congressional office released a decade’s worth of federal financial reports with nearly $130,000 in state pension income that he received, but failed to disclose, over that time.
Members of Congress are required to file annual reports listing their income and assets. The guidance book provided to lawmakers specifically states that they should list pension payments from any source other than the U.S. government. This guy should be more worried about his own financial disclosure than to what “legitimate rape” is . There is no such thing as legitimate rape idiot.
What is even worse if there can possibly be anything worse is that Todd attended the Covenant Theological Seminary to study to be a religious leader in the Presbyterian Church. He is now 65 years old married with six children. The GOP wants him to drop out of the race but he wont budge and continues to make wacky statements. He called his opponent “unladylike” at a debate. Should she also sit back and be “legitimately raped” too? People please throw this bum out.
