Rick Santorum – Careful What You Wish For

04 Jan

 Santorum came out of seemingly nowhere to finish a crazy close second to Romney, ( 8 votes separation), in Iowa’s caucas.

 Sends him to the forefront in the wing nut primary, (I’m not sure what that does for you jammed into the clown car,- might be more uncomfortable in an ” I’ll be the 1st to fall out” kind of way).

 But, being in that frontrunner position brings you,—- so sorry,—- scrutiny, scrutiny,… and added scrutiny on top.

 So,… like with Michelle , Perry, Hermy baby, Newton, (aren’t there more? I lose track),….. you WILL, Mr. Santorum, have all those skeletons that you thought you’d got rid of, dragged out of the basement where you thought they were nicely buried….

 Here’s a start…

Santorum Surge Brings Ethics Questions

 Rick Santorum‘s powerful finish in the Iowa caucus is bringing fresh attention to his tenure in Congress, including ethics questions that dogged him about a preferred mortgage he received from a bank run by campaign donors, and federal funds that went to a real estate developer who backed his charity.

One of the top donors to Santorum‘s charity was also the beneficiary of an $8 million Santorum-sponsored federal earmark, according to published reports. Melanie Sloan, a former federal prosecutor who filed an ethics complaint against Santorum in 2006 on behalf of a watchdog group, said her organization’s website received a tidal wave of visitors in the past 24 hours, and in an interview she said she believes people will discover that the GOP presidential contender is “hardly the moral paragon he purports to be.”

“There were several instances in which Santorum appeared to have taken campaign contributions in direct exchange for legislative assistance,” said Sloan, whose organization, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), spent months investigating Santorum’s activities while he was in office. “He violated Senate gift rules by accepting a mortgage from a bank in which he had no interest and which otherwise made loans only to its own investors.”

 Good luck Rick,…. enjoy.

    and the list goes on and on:

    1) involvement in the John Ensign scandal

    2) Abortion is one of the causes of the Social Security imbalance

    3)”I don’t want to make black people’s lives better by giving them somebody else’s money. I want to give them the opportunity to go out and earn the money and provide for themselves and their families.” – because ya know there are no white people on welfare

    4) Banning contraception
