After ridicilous comments on rape, Akin (R) taking steps to withdraw or is he??

News hit yesterday that Todd Akin, a Republican running or one of Minnesota’s U.S. Senate seats, told a St. Louis news station “If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.” After outcry by both republicans and democrats, and having funding cut from National GOP, he has began taking steps to withdraw his candidacy. A Republican close to him said that he will continue in the race, so we will find out by tomorrow’s 5:00 pm deadline to sign papers to legitimize his campaign.
