Rep. Todd Akins wife, Lulli Akin, says the Republican Partys attempts to push her husband out of the Missouri Senate race over his false assertion that women who are raped rarely get pregnant are like rape itself. RELATED: Akin TV Ad Buy Canceled For Failure To Pay Station
She also believes the GOPs abandonment is on par with the tyranny that launched the American Revolution.
Akins wife isnt the first one to compare Akins explosive rape comments, and the ensuing fallout, to rape: Bryan Fischer said the partys treatment of the embattled candidate had made Akin a victim of forcible assault.
Lulli Akin made the charge in a new National Journal profile, which reveals a family affair of a campaign Akins campaign manager is his son, and Lulli is also a key player.
Lulli Akin says in the profile that she is not turned off by the refusal of national Republicans to contribute money to the race. She says small donations and Gods will will help her husband win:
God can increase, she said, citing the Feeding of the 5,000 a Gospel miracle in which Jesus uses five small barley loaves and two small fish to feed a multitude. The campaign will take small contributions, respect them, and say God, multiply it. Make it pay, Lulli Akin said. It brought us through the primary, same way. Were gonna see it again, because God wants to be honored.
Lulli Akin echoed her husbands disdain for Republican leaders:
Lulli Akin said that efforts to push her husband out of the race threaten to replace elections by the people and for the people with tyranny, a top-down approach. She added, Party bosses dictating who is allowed to advance through the party and make all the decisionsits just like 1776 in that way.
She cited colonists who rose up and said, Not in my home, you dont come and rape my daughters and my wife. But that is where we are again. There has been a freedom of elections, not tyranny of selections since way back. Why are we going to roll over and let them steamroll us, be it Democrats or Republicans or whomever?
Todd Akin said his wifes comparisons to 1776 were a little more grandiose than the way I would say it but he did say that there is a this tremendous sense of uprising I feel among the people I talk to.
Rush was right about her husband, and it seems she’s stuck in the same “echo chamber” as him.
Since he is still running, he needs to try and get away from that idiotic statement.
The more they dig at that sore, the less likely he will win.
The GOP is no longer relevant in anything it does.
And people still wonder why McCaskill ran ads in support of this buffoon...
Good grief lady, your husband ain’t Jesus. Ironically, he is a trough feeder like every other elected official.
He blew his easy win with statements born in idiocy. His wife and the democrat party along with a few ignorant numbskulls
have stuck us with a loss to the even more ignorant witch.
Drop out now while you still can moron.
Would that be “legitimate” rape?
We don’t want GOP Establishment party bosses deciding who MO Senate candidate should be. If you belive in conservative principles send your donation to Todd Akin for Senator, P.O. Box 31222, St. Louis, MO 63131. If the party bosses win this one they might try it in your State next election.
The GOP didn't count on Akin standing firm and refusing to get out of the race after winning a hard, tough primary. So now Romney and Ryan are running on a ticket with Akin and will be asked everytime they show up in Missouri whether they still want Akin to withdraw. And that only helps McCaskill and divides the MO GOP. The GOP is not called the Stupid Party for nothing.
Who needs to pay for advertisements - paying your family to run your campaign is just good sense!/s
I bet the Akin campaign won't miss paying the family payroll - they may run short on things important to the actual campaign (like advertisements) but remember “it isn't about me!” Akin insists - it is also obviously about his family! They need to keep getting PAID!
Well, we now know at least one of the sources of his delusions about victory. This man will not be the next United States Senator from Missouri.
Can’t these people stay away from a microphone ?
Yeah, even the dunderhead, George “Macacca” Allen had the chutzpah to call for Akin’s withdrawal the day after the gaffe.
Yes, because God wants Todd to lose by double-digits to Witch McCaskill. These people are beyond delusional.
Yes. Out of experience from 2006. Allen blew his reelection that year because of "Macaca." So what's your point?
When people were talking about trying get Akin to step aside after his original comments regarding rape, it was implied that this would be nearly impossible because of his wife’s and son’s involvement in the campaign. It is pretty clear that the wife was not going to be a voice of reason and in fact, is likely driving the Akin bus. She sees her status as a senator’s wife fading away and is lashing out at the perceived villains. If she really wants to see who is sinking her husband’s chances, all she has to do is look in the mirror. All that is left is for the campaign manager son to make some kind of nutball comment to the press. How did McCaskill find these clowns.
Maybe, but up 'til now, we're not seeing it.
