A rare individual who happens to subscribe to both the Akin and McCaskill e-mail lists and who also happens to be a friend of Riverfront Times sent us this screenshot of her in-box today:
Akin himself issued the following statement last night:
"Lulli and I want to express our deepest condolences to Claire McCaskill and her family," said Todd Akin. "Our thoughts and prayers are with the whole McCaskill family right now."
Even though Akin's thoughts are with McCaskill, the rest of his party's are, apparently, still on fundraising.
