“Polls just closed! Thank you so much for your support! Who's ready to see the results come in and Missouri go RED?”

Todd Akins tweeted soon after casting his vote. A few hours later, Missouri Democrat Claire McCaskill defeated him to win a second U.S. Senate term.

McCaskill’s campaign ran television ads attacking Akins’ comments on rape. One, which cited Akin “in his own words,” quoted the Republican lawmaker as having said about Social Security in March 2011: “I don’t like it.” The ad concluded with his “legitimate rape” remark and asked, “What will he say next?”

Indeed, it was his words that dragged Akins down!

In August 2012, during a local TV interview when Akin was asked whether he supported abortion in the case of rape. In response Akin said, “If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.”

That’s not all, he has been known to make such self damaging claims time and again. Sometimes saying things that didn’t just defy common sense, but science and nature as well! For instance his comment in 2008, that women who were not pregnant were still getting abortions from “abortionists…the very bottom of the food chain of the medical profession.”

Well, now all his comments seem to have paid off!  Actually, more like come back to bite him!

And boy has the public got some words for Mr. Akins!
