Mum’s the word on Todd Akin being a ‘jail bird’
At a 2011 ‘pastor’s briefing’ with disgraced pseudo-historian David Barton, congressman and Senate candidate Todd Akin (R-MO) recounted an experience of going to jail after protesting against abortion rights. Akin told the audience that he had earlier spoken with ‘a group of people who had been in jail with me’ who were all ‘involved in the pro-life movement.’
‘Don’t tell anybody I’m a jail bird,’ Akin said, briefly telling a story about when ‘a bunch of us sat in front of these doors and the police gave us a ride to the free hotel for a while and you know how it goes.’
Guess the cat is out of the bag.
