Todd Akin: I’ve Relived ‘Legitimate Rape’ Many Times (VIDEO)

FRIDAY APRIL 26, 2013

Former Rep. Todd Akin (R-MO), whose Senate campaign nosedived after he claimed the female body will reject pregnancy if a "legitimate rape" is committed, said in an interview that he has relived that infamous moment "too many times" and wishes he could take it back.

"But that's not reality," Akin told KSDK in an interview published on Thursday. "All of us are fallible. We make mistakes, say things the wrong way. I've relived that moment many, many times."

Akin said he regrets the line, adding, "You think, well, what would it have been like if I hadn't done that?"

Despite bungling his last campaign, the former congressman said he isn't ruling out a return to politics in the future. "I don't rule anything out," he said. "I consider it kind of a bright, new future. And I'm interested to see what the possibilities are."
