He can't be removed once he wins the primary, other than by thwarting the will of the voters in the Missouri Senate Republican primary. Both parties embraced democratic primaries almost a century ago.
The only way he's "removed" is if he steps down.
Speaking of which, Republican super PACs donated to Akin anyway
, all through the primary process and the general election.
Once again, I'll ask the question -- what's the difference between "controlling" a party through huge million-dollar donations and merely "influencing" a party. You have yet to define the distinction.
