Don't know why it is from the Idaho Statesman. Good article.Aiken is just trying to sling some mud to see if it will stick.
In the event that this gains any traction against Claire will we all say that he LEGITIMATELY RAPED her?

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo.: Akin chides gov't money tied to McCaskill's spouse | National Elections | Idahostatesman.com

The campaign said the vast majority of the housing subsidy contracts were initiated before McCaskill became a senator, although Shepard invested in some of them after she was elected and others were renewed during her term in office. The subsidies cover the gap between the rent paid by the tenant and the value of the housing unit as determined by the federal government. Consequently, much of the subsidy goes to the owners' operating costs, such as mortgage payments or facility maintenance, the campaign said. Were Congress to not fund the subsidies, the federal government would be defaulting on its obligations, the campaign said.

McCaskill's campaign said her position is no different than that of lawmakers who are farmers and vote for agriculture bills that include farm aid, or lawmakers who have family members in the military and vote for bills authorizing defense spending. Her campaign suggested it was a greater conflict for Akin to have supported a federal spending earmark for a highway near his suburban St. Louis home - though Akin's family received no money to construct it.

Curious if you have any link which will dispute McCaskill's husband's businesesss receiving $40 million in federal dolllars during her first term? I know you dispute that there was anything wrong with that, but I wonder if you can dispute the underlying fact? Because that fact along, if true, might tend to raise questions among most Missourians, Republican or Democrat.

I'll be voting for Aiken. Partly because so many hate him. I do think he's a bit out there, but I'd like the Republicans to take the Senate. Plus, he alone doesn't have the power to do anything extreme.

Always an excellent reason to vote for someone.

But then again, as a retired political and legislative analyst who coincidentally is married to another one, I've always said and we've always agreed that you'll never get rich betting on the collective memory and intelligence of the American electorate.

If you have to ask then I don't think that enlightenment is in your future.

Perfect example of what the rest of the US imagines an Akin suppporter to be.
