The Republican Party has flip-flopped of Congressman Todd Akin of Missouri.
In August they were demanding that he leave the Senate race. Today, the same people are embracing the national embarrassment that is Todd Akin. The Republican Senate Campaign Committee has decided to support Akin after saying they would not at the height of his controversy.
Akin is the Member of Congress running for Senate in Missouri who told an interviewer that women who are victims of "legitimate rape" cannot get pregnant because their bodies have a way of "shutting the whole thing down."
