The St. Louis Beacon reported that former congressman Akin, unsuccessful Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate, ranked the second highest in the U.S. House in the percentage hike in salaries and bonuses given to staff members in the final quarter of last year.

Claire McCaskill in the November general election.
