Sticking With It

Akin Raised $100,000 Online

Todd Akin may have lost all of his funding from the national Republican party as well as his invitation to the GOP convention, but who needs the institution anyway? The ostracized congressional candidate claims to have raised over $100,000 online. He made the announcement on Twitter Thursday morning, following days of bad press after he claimed victims of "legitimate rape" could not get pregnant. "The message is clear...voters should pick candidates, not party bosses," he tweeted.
