A Decent Check

“I’m in a three way primary for the US Senate. I’ve gone to people and asked for their support, their help, or their endorsement and some people say yes. They write me a decent check. I remember that. The people that I thought were friends that tell me to go away because they are supporting someone else, I remember that. You know, I can remember back to 12 years ago. You remember who’s helping you. That’s one way that people get to know Congressmen and Senators.”

  • Context: A video surfacing on Youtube on Monday purported to be an audio recording of Todd Akin answering a question on how to get in touch with a Congressman. Akin, who has been criticized heavily for his comments on rape, responded by saying that a good way to be remember by him is to write him a “decent check”. The influence of money on politicians has been highlighted recently with super PAC’s spending tens of millions of dollars on campaigns across the country.
