Todd Akin NOT To Speak At FRC Event
UPDATE: I've inserted a big NOT into the above headline:
Just minutes after Family Research Council President Tony Perkins told reporters and C-SPAN cameras that Rep. Todd Akin would attend the Values Voter Summit this weekend, officials from the FRC and the Akin campaign told TPM that’s actually not the case. Akin will not be at the Values Voter Summit, the annual social conservative confab that kicks off Friday. His absence spares Mitt Romney’s campaign potential embarrassment and association with Akin. Paul Ryan is scheduled to speak at the gathering on Friday.Now Ann Romney AND Todd Akin have bailed on ole' Tony.
