St. Louis, MO: Today the Akin Campaign released a new ad highlighting veterans who support Todd Akin.

Claire McCaskill has accused Todd Akin of wanting to "get rid of" Medicare and Social Security. Once again, this is simply not true. Instead, Todd Akin is working to preserve and strengthen Medicare and Social Security.
Claire McCaskill has rolled out another false attack against Todd Akin, saying that Todd's female staffers are paid less than his male staffers. This accusation is factually incorrect.
