In the last two weeks, U.S. Representative and Republican U.S. Senator Candidate Todd Akin has made several statements that have been scrutinized.  Recently, Todd Atkins drew controversy nationwide when he said in a television interview that it is "really rare" that victims of "legitimate rape" get pregnant.

Adding fuel to the fire, he made an appearance on the Mike Huckabee Show on Monday, August 20, saying that he is not a quitter and then that same night, he was supposed to be on CNN with Piers Morgan and bowed out at the last minute.

 

There are rumors circulating that he may make a more public announcement, but this morning a new commercial aired where Akin asks for forgiveness for his recent remarks.
