Rep. Todd Akin: Write a Check if You Want My Attention

Via Raw Story:

When it comes to politics,  money talks and bullshit walks…right into public office. Most politicians aren’t nearly as upfront about the connection between receiving loads of money and their willingness to pay attention to their constituents. Then again, most politicians aren’t Rep. Todd Akin, currently running for senate in Missouri. Akin was perhaps a little too candid for his own good at a Kansas City Fair Tax meeting in May when he answered a question about the best way to contact a member of congress. The campaign to re-elect his opponent, Sen. Claire McCaskill, uploaded the audio just a couple of days ago:

“I’m in a three way primary for the U.S. Senate. I’ve gone to people and asked for their support, their help, or their endorsement and some people say yes. They write me a decent check. I remember that… You remember who’s helping you. That’s one way that people get to know Congressmen and Senators.”

    What a whore.

      Don’t degrade whores by comparing them to Akin! Whores provide a useful
      service to society.

      Akin is more like a psychotic pimp, taking big money by controlling access to the “booty” (the Legislative process) yet providing no tangible service to society and abusing those who actually pay his salary (the public).

        Fair enough.

      what a blatantly honest whore

      • rtb61

         Sometimes honest ain’t honest, it’s just too stupid to realise what it has said. As for the rest of the electorate those that voted for Senator Akin, Senator Akin said “Who?”.
        That’s right Missourians you’re forgotten like you never existed.
