Todd Akin Told Not to Come to RNC Convention

Toxic Todd Akin Told Not to Come to RNC Convention

Within 24 hours Rep. Todd Akin (R-MO) has become so toxic to Republicans that his funding was cut off and he was told not to attend the RNC Convention by the GOP leader Reince Priebus.

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus appeared on CNN’s Out Front on Monday evening and spoke to Erin Burnett about the controversial statements made by Rep. Todd Akins, Missouri Republican, regarding rape. He called for Mr. Akin, who is running for Senate against Democrat Claire McCaskill, to “step aside and let someone else run for that office.” Chairman Priebus also said that he “prefer that Todd Akin do the right thing for our party and our candidates” and “not come” to the upcoming RNC Convention in Tampa.


Wild Thing's comment.............

I agree, we do not need this Akin jerk messing with our convention. It is way too important. He will be a distraction and he for sure IS toxic.
