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."

Well said Senator Brown.....I notice your opponent is strangely silent on this issue........she may by her silence concur with Senatorial candidate Akin?

Edward Saucier

Definitely too much inbreeding in those republican ridden red states. Todd Akin thinks about the same as the rest of those anti-choice republican fanatics only he's a bit crazier and tells the world.

Scott "Slippery" Brown is just doing his act for the female voters. "Oh, what a nice guy, I'll have to vote for him!" Right, sure thing Scotty, how about the birth control issue?

That nasty Elizabeth Warren, she must think like Todd Akin because she hasn't said anything yet. Anyone who would insinuate that has got to be a moron. 'Q" did you hear me?

Ed,

Are you frustrated? Why are you calling people names? Are you incapable of arguing the points of your ideology without attacking people like Mr Quist and Senator Brown?

It really makes you look bad when you insist on calling someone a moron or slippery just because they don't hold the same beliefs as you.

Just saying,

Harry

I commend Senator Brown for his public comments. Now, leaders in the Republican party need to follow suit. Akin is a disgrace and needs to step down. His ignorance is a poor reflection against all Republicans nationwide.

Harvey Beehive

How quickly Saucy forgot about what that bumbbling idiot Biden said last week. Oh...that was just a joke. Right? The difference is that even if Akin got elected, he'd only be 1 of 100 senators. Joe the mornon Biden however, is a heartbeat away from the most powerful position on the planet. Now that's a scary thought.

Stephen Quist

Hi Ed I hear you loud and clear and appreciate your opinions though in this instance we will disagree.
My point was that Senator Brown was immediately out front denouncing the deplorable Akin and not waiting to see or test the political winds of what is political expedient.
Browns strong repudiation of Akins intolerence is warranted and valid.
'Lying lizzy warren' never came out with a response until later in the day......what took her so long?
