“We feel this is a case of gotcha politics,” Mackey told reporters outside of the Republican National Committee’s platform committee discussions. “He has been elected five times in that community in Missouri. They know who Todd Akin is. We know who Todd Akin is. We’ve worked with him up on the Hill. He’s a defender of life. He’s a defender of families and this just a controversy built up, I think, it looks as though, to support his opposition. Claire Mccaskill on the other hand, has supported planned parenthood all these years, which is under investigation for use of funds, for cover up on statuatory rape and I think that Todd Akin is getting a really bad break here.”
Perkins and Mackey declined to comment on the substance of Akin’s controversial charge.
“I don’t know anything about the science or the legal implications of his statement. I do know politics, and I know gotcha politics when I see it,” Mackey added.
Perkins called the controversy an attempt to divert attention form McCaskill. “Claire McCaskill has been supportive of planned parenthood, an organization that has been under investigation for criminal activity,” Perkins said.
“For other Republicans, I have not seen Scott Brown’s statement, but he should be careful because based on some of his statements there may be some call for him to get out of his race,” Perkins added.
Asked what he was referring to, Perkins said that Brown has been “off the reservation on a number of Republican issues, conservative issues.”
Wait… so they do not know about the science, but they still support him?
This is disgusting…
What the AFA and the FRC are doing is attempting to provide Akin coverage – religious coverage, to make this a religious attack.
