Akin: In new ad, asks for "forgiveness" for "legitimate rape" remark

| No Comments

below, from Akin, apology and fund-raising pitch....


I made a mistake. I used the wrong words in the wrong way. What I said was ill-conceived and it was wrong and for that I apologize.

Unlike Claire McCaskill, I believe that working to protect the most vulnerable in our society is one of my most important responsibilities, and that includes protecting both the unborn and victims of sexual assault. We must move forward and work together to replace Claire McCaskill in the Senate.

But I can't do this alone... I need your help.

Will you stand with me and chip-in $3 as a sign of support of my continued candidacy?
