(Kansas City Star) Former Missouri Congressman Todd Akin broke his post-election silence Thursday, telling a St. Louis TV station that he regrets his “legitimate rape” remarks that boosted the candidacy of Democrat Claire McCaskill.

He also said he can’t rule out another run for public office.

“It’s one of those things that depends on the circumstances really,” he told KSDK. “I don’t rule anything out.”
