Karl Rove Jokes That He Wants To Kill Todd Akin

At a fundraiser Thursday, Karl Rove told top Republican donors of his plans to use his “outside” groups — Crossroads GPS and American Crossroads — to win House and Senate seats for the party. During his remarks, Bloomberg Businessweek reports, he made the off-color joke: “We should sink Todd Akin. If he’s found mysteriously murdered, don’t look for my whereabouts!” Crossroads GPS pulled its pro-Akin ads after the Missouri Congressman and Republican Senate nominee said victims of “legitimate rape” are unlikely to become pregnant.
