…And this is exactly what happened in Missouri last Tuesday.
Women voters put a coffin in Rep. Todd Akin’s (R-MO) plan to explain away different types of rape as “legitimate” or not. After his controversial comments in August, voters responded with a 54 to 37 percent vote margin in favor of incumbent Sen. Claire McCaskill, a Democrat.
The voters “legitimately” kept Akin’s ass from taking another office in Washington, D.C. for a while. Because he is already serving in the House and ran for Senate, he cannot keep his job as a Congressman. So, he essentially lost two jobs in one day.
