Todd Akin Saved Us From Bestiality In The Military

by Stuart Shapiro

From Progress Missouri:

Rep. Todd Akin on the 2011 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA): “The Senate version of that bill…  They also had the legilization of bestiality, which is pretty weird. And so I’m on the House side of the negotiations on that, so we got rid of the bestiality thing….”

You’ll probably not be shocked to learn that Akin is wrong about this.

Personally, I am so impressed with Rep. Akin for standing up to the powerful pro-bestiality lobby.
