Get Real: Rep. Todd Akin's wife compares GOP treatment of husband to rape

Rep. Todd Akin's wife Lulli has raised eyebrows by comparing the Republican party's treatment of her husband to rape in an interview with the National Journal.

After Rep. Akin made comments last month about a woman's ability to "shut down" to prevent pregnancy during a "legitimate rape," the party pulled funding for his Senate campaign.

Kin's wife compared the GOP's conduct to the tyrannical party bosses of 1776, saying that that's when colonoists "rose up and said, not in my home, you don't come and rape my daughters and my wife...but that is where we are again."

Soledad O'Brien and the Starting Point panelists weighs in on her comment on the show this morning.
