On the Web: Koster and the 'rape thing'

Another example of Washington politicians getting in elsewhere: John Koster, the Republican running for the state's 1st Congressional District seat, is getting lots of attention -- not necessarily the good kind -- for a comment he made about rape.

He's being lumped in with GOP Senate candidates from Missouri and Indiana. Here's the original AP story from  the Everett Herald.

Here's the official Koster campaign reaction.

You can decide for yourself if Koster had a "Todd Akin" moment.
