Scott Brown calls on Akin to drop out of race

An hour ago, Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.) tweeted out that Rep. Todd Akin should apologize for his rape comments -- now he's calling for the representative to resign from the Senate race with a short statement posted on his Web site:

“As a husband and father of two young women, I found Todd Akin’s comments about women and rape outrageous, inappropriate and wrong. There is no place in our public discourse for this type of offensive thinking.  Not only should he apologize, but I believe Rep. Akin’s statement was so far out of bounds that he should resign the nomination for US Senate in Missouri.”
