Video: Romney Campaign Tells Reporter Shaun Boyd Not to Ask Questions About Abortion or Rep. Todd Akin

| by Michael Allen

CBS Denver reporter Shaun Boyd recently tried to ask Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney about Rep. Todd Akin about the “legitimate rape” abortion controversy, but the Romney campaign refused.

In a broadcast on Thursday, Boyd revealed the Romney campaign’s demand that she not ask about Rep. Akin or abortion (video below).

Boyd said: “You know, I had about five minutes with him, and we got through a fair amount of material, actually, in that five minutes. The one stipulation to the interview was that I not ask him about abortion or Todd Akin, he’s the Missouri Republican who created a firestorm after saying women’s shut down in a legitimate rape to prevent pregnancy. I did ask him about health care, the female vote, and energy.”

The Romney campaign told TalkingPointsMemo.com: “This is not how we operate. The matter is being addressed.”
