"Legitimate Rape" Congressman Todd Akin Now Going After Gays In The Military
He loses his senate race for being a misogynist and a rape enabler. He was in the clear lead until he showed his true colors. Now, on his way out of congress, he is attacking gay veterans. What a dick!!
Rep. Todd Akin (R-Mo.) lost to Democrat Claire McCaskill in November and will soon leave the House of Representatives. Before he goes, however, Akin wants to push one last anti-gay bill to undermine the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell.
The Senate passed another version of the bill in December, without Akin's anti-gay proposal, according to Mother Jones. Now, the Missouri representative is pushing for its final approval, along with Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Rep. Howard McKeon (R-Calif.). "They're pushing pretty hard," a House Democrat told the website.
