Todd Akin Picks Up Endorsement From Reality TV Family

Nearly two months after controversial comments on rape  made Rep. Todd Akin a political pariah, all 21 members of America’s largest reality television family are scheduled to make campaign appearances for the embattled Missouri senate candidate.

Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar received national attention from their TLC reality show “19 Kids and Counting,” which chronicles their life raising nine girls and ten boys – all of whom have names beginning with the letter “J.” The Duggars, who share Akin’s pro-life views, are hoping to bring their wholesome family charm to Akin’s campaign, which is trying to close the gap between the congressman and Sen. Claire McCaskill.
