Akin's website features picture of fetus

Rep. Todd Akin's is far from dropping out of the Missouri Senate race. Despite pressure from the Republican establishment, including Mitt Romney, Akin asked conservative voters to support him and his pro-life stances with a picture of a fetus on his official-real-we-checked-it-out-for-serious campaign website. It also misspelled the word "you're."

The image and spelling mistakes have been scrubbed from the site as of this afternoon. Hats off to Talking Points Memo for taking the screengrab while it lasted.
