I’m in a three-way primary for the US Senate. I’ve gone to people and asked for their support, their help, or their endorsement, and some people say yes. They write me a decent check. I remember that. The people that I thought were friends that tell me to go away because they are supporting someone else, I remember that. You know, I can remember back to 12 years ago. You remember who’s helping you. That’s one way that people get to know congressmen and senators.

Rep. Todd “Legitimate Rape” Akin, answering a constituent’s question on the best way to get the congressman’s attention.

Seriously: http://thinkprogress.org/election/2012/09/24/902481/todd-akin-constituents-who-want-my-attention-should-write-me-a-decent-check

So… thanks for the honesty?
