Karl Rove has apologized to Congressman Todd Akin (R-Mo.) after he joked about killing the senate candidate.
“We should sink Todd Akin," Rove told top GOP donors at a an exclusive breakfast in Tampa, according to Bloomberg Businessweek. "If he’s found mysteriously murdered, don’t look for my whereabouts!"
Rick Tyler, Akin's campaign adviser, told the AP Rove called the senate candidate Friday to apologize. Akin, who was publicly bothered by Rove's comment, accepted his apology.
The AP reported earlier:
Akin's office issued a statement calling the quote deeply disturbing, given that the FBI has been investigating threats against Akin after his comments that women's bodies can shut down pregnancy in cases of what he called "legitimate rape."
