Lingle: Rep. Akin’s Rape Remarks ‘Reprehensible’

U.S. candidate Linda Lingle released the following statement after Missouri Rep. Todd Akin’s weekend statement regarding rape:

Rep. Akin’s comments are reprehensible and offensive. Sexual assault and abuse of any form is physically and emotionally damaging and cannot be categorized as Congressman Akin has tried to do. His comments are deplorable and are not representative of any mainstream views, including my own.
