I shouldn't need to describe or quote the recent statements of the Honorable Todd Akin. If you have not read about him, you should not be posting here.
My question for discussion is that given the statements he made and the "apology" he made, should there be any concern about his qualifications to serve in Congress and, especially on the committees he has been serving?
Armed Services - Seapower and Expeditionary Forces, Air and Land Forces
Science, Space, and Technology - Space and Aeronautics, Energy and Environment.
I don't believe he is representative of the party but I do fear that he may be representative of some other individuals who are in equally powerful positions on any party. I think his party would be served well if he were to resign (or be forced to resign) and be replaced with another of the same party. Then the reelection would be based on a more reasonable set of criteria.
Are their those who do not see this as prejudice? How would you define it and to what degree of seriousness?
