Over the weekend, McCaskill released a new ad touting her experience as a prosecutor while criticizing rival Todd Akin's opposition to emergency contraception.
Pointing to Akin's comments that women can shut down pregnancy in cases of "legitimate rape," the commercial added, "it's not what Todd Akin said. It's what he believes."
At a campaign stop in Camdenton, McCaskill was approached by a woman who denounced Akin's "legitimate rape" remark as "idiotic."
"I was raped when I was 16," Cindy McMarus told McCaskill. "It didn't shut down."
"They don't think an employer should have the freedom to discriminate against them and pay them less for the same work. They don't believe that they should be made a criminal for taking emergency contraception after they've been a victim of rape," she said. "That is all on Todd Akin."
Akin has repeatedly apologized for his six second mistake, but the issue still haunts him on the campaign trail as a fundraising boom for McCaskill and a fundraising dampener for himself.
The issue will likely be a topic of the pair's final debate, which takes place next week in St. Louis.
