Akin Adviser Compares Him to Cult Leader

Kellyanne Conway, a consultant for U.S. Senate candidate Todd Akin (R), compared her client's fortitude in staying in the race to that of deadly cult leader David Koresh, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Said Conway: "I've expressed this to Todd as my client for a while now, I've expressed it to him directly. The first day or two where it was like the Waco with the David Koresh situation where they're trying to smoke him out with the SWAT teams and the helicopters and the bad Nancy Sinatra records. Then here comes day two and you realize the guy's not coming out of the bunker. Listen, Todd has shown his principle to the voters."
