Todd Akin Takes Back His Apology

Failed Missouri U.S. Senate candidate Todd Akin (R) is out with a new book, Firing Back.

Politico: "Two years after the Missouri Republican's comments on rape, pregnancy and abortion doomed his campaign and fueled a 'war on women' message that carried Democrats to victory in the Senate, one of the few regrets he mentions in a new book is the decision to air a campaign ad apologizing for his remarks."

Writes Akin: "By asking the public at large for forgiveness, I was validating the willful misinterpretation of what I had said."
