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.
