Akin not ruling out political return

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Todd Akin isn't ruling out a political comeback, nearly six months after losing Missouri's U.S. Senate race amid widespread criticism of his comments about "legitimate rape."

Akin recently spoke to KSDK-TV in his first interview since losing the November election to Democratic incumbent Claire McCaskill. He said he's ready for a comeback, but hasn't decided if that will be in academia, public speaking, or even politics.

The 65-year-old Republican was a 12-year congressman from suburban St. Louis who won a tough Senate primary in August. His campaign took a hit after he remarked in a TV interview that women's bodies have ways of avoiding pregnancy from what he called "legitimate rape."

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Former Missouri Congressman Todd Akin roughly doubled his office payroll after losing a campaign for U.S. Senate.

<br><br>

Salary figures available through the online tracking site Legistorm.com show Akin paid his 14-person staff nearly $400,000 in the final quarter of 2012. That's twice as much as the $200,000 quarterly payroll that Akin averaged through the rest of the year.

<br><br>

Former Akin communications director Steve Taylor said Monday that the bonus essentially was a separation package for staffers who lost their jobs because of the Republican congressman's defeat by Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill.

Taylor said Akin's staff had a rough final few months. He said staffers were inundated with hateful messages by people upset by Akin's remark that women's bodies had ways of avoiding pregnancy in what Akin described as "legitimate rape."
