Democrats Tie Republicans to Akin Comments

DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz sent an email attempting to tie Rep. Todd Akin's (R-MO) comments about abortion to the entire Republican Party and GOP presidential ticket, Politico reports.

From the email: "Can you imagine -- the same Republican House that refuses to pass a jobs bill jumped at the opportunity to make life harder for victims of rape? And what do Romney and Ryan think of Akin's latest statement? They've been trying to distance themselves from it -- but Congressman Ryan has already partnered with Akin on a whole host of issues that restrict women's ability to make their own health care decisions."

It's reasonable to expect the Democrats will try to keep this issue in the headlines for the entire week.
