Todd Akin is a former six-term US Congressman from Missouri. He was elected VP of his freshman Congressional class, served on the Science, Budget, and Armed Services Committees, as well as chaired the SeaPower Subcommittee. With a BS in Engineering, service as an Army Officer, four years in IBM marketing, several years in steel mill corporate management, and life-long in-depth study of America’s founding principles, Todd Akin was a rarity in the US Congress.
A champion of conservative principles, Akin’s first vote was against “No Child Left Behind.” He maintained his principled stands over twelve years in spite of threats from top donors and phone calls from the White House. He was consistently rated as a top House conservative.
Todd and his wife, Lulli, home-educated their six children. Three sons were US Naval Academy graduates and Marine officers. In his spare time, Todd plays with his eleven grandchildren, builds furniture, sails, plays guitar, and enjoys tennis with Lulli. Todd and Lulli reside in St. Louis.
