Rick Santorum’s Fundraising Email for Todd “Legitimate Rape” Akin

Rick Santorum just sent out an email through his Patriot Voices PAC with the subject line “Help me elect Todd Akin to the Senate.” He even blames the “liberal media” for beating Todd Akin up after he made some comments that Rick knows he regrets. Here’s the full text of Rick’s email:

Help me elect Todd Akin to the U.S. Senate from Missouri.

Republicans absolutely must win control over the U.S. Senate, and Todd could be the 51st vote we need to do just that.

Please make an urgent and generous donation of $20, $25, $50, $100, $250 or whatever you can possibly afford to help Todd Akin defeat the ultra-liberal Claire McCaskill.

I am personally committed to doing everything I possibly can to help this good and decent conservative win this tough fight.

We need more staunchly pro-life, pro-freedom and pro-limited government conservatives in the U.S. Senate.

And Todd’s race could very well determine which party has the majority. Grassroots conservatives need to take a stand right now.

We must win this election!

Now, Todd made some comments that I know he regrets, and the liberal media has really beaten him up.

However, this race is still dead even.

Todd Akin can definitely win if conservatives across the nation will just rally to his side.

His opponent, Claire McCaskill, is one of President Obama’s most loyal foot soldiers in the Senate. She’s way, way too liberal for Missouri. Her negative ratings are sky high.

She supports ObamaCare, abortion on demand, more government spending and higher taxes.

She has to go.

And Todd Akin is just the man to send her packing.

I formed the Patriot Voices PAC in order to take our conservative message to every corner of America.

I’ve been crisscrossing the country helping Mitt Romney and all our good conservative candidates make the case for true limited government, forcing Washington to operate within its means and standing up for the American family.

However Todd Akin’s race is particularly important. Control over the U.S. Senate is at stake.

That’s why I’ve made winning this race one of my very top priorities.

Please stand with me now and help Todd Akin.

Todd’s got a great campaign organization. His campaign team is tough and tenacious.

However, he desperately needs the help of grassroots conservatives like you.

As you know, some establishment Republicans have given up on Todd’s race. They believe longshot races in Maine and Hawaii are a “better investment.”

I respectfully disagree. And the public opinion polls back me up.

This race is effectively tied and Todd Akin can win. But only if conservatives from across America rally to his side right now.

Please, as a personal favor to me, make the most generous contribution you possibly can to fund Patriot Voices PAC’s efforts to help elect Todd Akin.

We need to pay for get-out-the-vote drives, phone banks and mailings.

We need to rally every single conservative in the Show Me State to turn out and vote on Election Day.

This is most important Senate race in the country. And Todd Akin can win it.

However he desperately needs our help.

Please donate what you can.

Thank you in advance for all your help.

God bless you and may God bless America!
