Claire McCaskill is so unpopular that shes barely running ahead of Todd Akin despite his self-inflicted wounds and the defection of almost all of the Republican establishment from supporting him.
McCaskill has had to spend heavily just to stay slightly ahead:
Senator Claire McCaskill, the Missouri Democrat fighting to keep her seat, spent nearly $7 million over a three-month period through the end of September and her campaign had more than $2.1 million in the bank for her race against Representative Todd Akin, according to quarterly disclosure reports her campaign released on Monday.
Could McCaskill lose? Two days ago the answer would have been, possibly.
After the latest revelation at The Daily Caller, the answer is you betcha.
"Whistle-blower audio: Sen. Claire McCaskills husband cut business deals in Senate Dining Room
Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskills husband used the U.S. Senate Dining Room to cut business deals selling tax credits tied to stimulus money, a whistle-blowing executive inside his company alleged on an audio recording exclusively obtained by The Daily Caller.
The thing that irritated me about this was he [McCaskills husband Joseph Shepard] entertained these outside investors in the Senate Dining Room, the whistle-blower said. Thats where he closed the deal.

Wow! I can hardly wait to see the MSM evening news lead off with that hot story.
You betcha ping!
What is her husband doing in the Senate dining room entertaining his clients???
Need I say it?
PRAY. PRAY very hard. And a few dollars in Aiken’s collection basket will help. Let the RNC know how you feel!
I think this is going to put Akin over the top.
Democrat, stimulus money, influence peddling.
A perfect fit.
I watched their debate this week. She did a really good job, but it doesn’t matter to me. Neither does any negatives to do with Akin.
Claire voted for Obama Care. That alone means I will never vote for her. Never Ever no matter who runs against her. End of story.
Her reception at the town halls, and the anger of her constituents should have given her a clue.
Here’s the video of the after party after the debate last night. Dana Loesch asked McCasket about her husband cutting deals in the senate dining room and Claire explodes...enjoy (and post it everywhere you can!!)
Akin is a really good conservative, who made one minor gaffe that was blown all out of proportion.
If every RINO in the country, and even many conservatives, hadn’t jumped on board the left wing smear train and given the impression that his own people had turned against him, he would be a shoe-in.
Which is worse, a guy with a terrific record after many terms in office who made a minor scientific error about children born of rape, or a corrupt woman baby-killer who never saw a baby she didn’t want to murder?
Which is the worse scientific error: to believe the idea that women who have been raped are less likely to conceive, or that a baby in the womb is not a human being, and therefore can be freely killed?
Go Todd !!!
You nailed it.
Has that audio been used in an Akin TV ad yet??
When Todd Akin is sworn in as Senator, he will owe the RINO leadership nothing.
The RINO’s will have to deal with a true conservative much to their dismay.
It wasn’t just one gaffe. his campaign manager wife came out and compared rape to the RNC not funding their campaign.
There was no excuse for him to not step aside. In my view he put his lwn ego ahead of what he claims to believe in. Latest polls show romney up substantially here, without Akin’s dunderheaded mistakes, we wouldn’t be hoping claire goes, but we would have our candidate already measuring the windows in her senate office for drapes.
