NEW: Brown Calls on Todd Akin to Give Up Senate Nod

Monday, August 20, 2012

 

Senator Scott Brown released a statement on Monday calling for Missouri Republican Senate candidate Todd Akin to resign his nomination following the senate hopeful's controversial statements about abortion and "legitimate rape" during a television interview Sunday.

"As a husband and father of two young women, I found Todd Akin's comments about women and rape outrageous, inappropriate and wrong. There is no place in our public discourse for this type of offensive thinking," Brown said.

"Not only should he apologize, but I believe Rep. Akin's statement was so far out of bounds that he should resign the nomination for US Senate in Missouri."
