The Akin campaign told CBS radio that the payment problem was a scheduling mistake, and the next checks are on their way.
Akin has been frozen out of conventional Republican fundraising efforts, following his false comment that women’s bodies can prevent pregnancy in cases of “legitimate rape,” and the GOP’s efforts to pressure him to drop out.
As the public record shows, the issue is not the scientifically illiterate falsehoods; the GOP thrives of falsehoods.
The Republican Party is not punishing Akin for what he said. It’s punishing him for saying it where it could be overheard.
