Missouri Senate candidate Todd Akin has said he was arrested as an abortion protester about 25 years ago, but he's not saying anything more about it.
Akin campaign adviser Rick Tyler said Wednesday that Akin never was charged and the campaign will not release any further details about the incident.
At a news conference last Friday in Kansas City, Akin acknowledged the arrest but did not go into specifics. An aide had said the campaign would release more details later.
Republican Senate candidate Todd Akin is again drawing attention for comments about abortion — this time, for saying that doctors are "giving abortions to women who are not actually pregnant."
The Missouri House has passed legislation that would bar local governments from interfering with the day-to-day operations of alternatives to abortion agencies.
