Inhofe, Coburn Help Raise Money For Akin After "Legitimate Rape" Comment

Posted: Updated:

Oklahoma's two state senators are throwing their support behind controversial Missouri Senate candidate Todd Akin.

According to POLITICO, Sens. Jim Inhofe and Tom Coburn are two of four senators listed as honorary hosts of a Wednesday fundraiser for the Republican candidate in Washington, D.C.

The other two senators are Jim DeMint and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina.

Akin has gotten little financial support from the national party after his statement about "legitimate rape."

The requested donation for Wednesday's event is $2,500.

Democrats have indicated they will take on any GOP official or candidate who join up with Akin, so it's not a surprise the four senators involved in this event are in some of the country's reddest states.
