Bass For Congress - CHARLIE BASS STATEMENT ON CONGRESSMAN AIKEN

Concord, NH- Congressman Charlie Bass released the following statement to the media today:

"As I was traveling throughout New Hampshire Monday, I made it clear to a number of people that the comments made by Representative Akin are insensitive, ignorant and inexcusable. I vehemently disagree with his remarks.   They lack reason, compassion or a demonstrated understanding of this reprehensible act of violence against women.  As I stated to several constituents Monday, Representative Akin should immediately step down from the Missouri Senate race.  He has proven with his comments that he does not have the temperament or judgment to continue.”
