Long and short: the Senatorial candidate Todd Akin fucked up and said thatThe backlash has come in many forms: a few Onion articles, dragging Paul Ryan into the thing, a call to back out of the race, and about a billion other news articles about him. Apparently, this whole situation has cost him $10 million.“It seems to be, first of all, from what I understand from doctors, it’s really rare. If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut the whole thing down.”
Akin has admitted that he 'misspoke' and he has apologized, but he's said that he's not gonna back out of the race.
So. Would this dissuade you from voting for the guy? Is this whole thing blown out of proportion, or do we deserve his head on a platter?
