“As a husband and father of two young women, I found Todd Akin’s comments about women and rape outrageous, inappropriate and wrong. There is no place in our public discourse for this type of offensive thinking. Not only should he apologize, but I believe Rep. Akin’s statement was so far out of bounds that he should resign the nomination for US Senate in Missouri.”
Earlier on Monday, Mitt Romney called Akin’s comments “insulting” but stopped short of asking him to step aside. Romney Senior Adviser Eric Fehrnstrom is also an adviser on Brown’s campaign.
