Santorum was a key player in implementing the “K Street Project,” an effort by conservatives in the wake of Bush’s 2000 victory to monopolize influential positions at trade associations and corporate government affairs offices.

The infamous K Street Project…set up a money-generating machine to fuel GOP campaign coffers and think tanks. But in the process, jobs also got traded for official acts, including legislation, and that’s illegal. Abramoff simply took advantage of K Street’s ingenious scheme. Trading jobs for official acts is one of the charges against him.

Record show the tribe donated $2,000 to Santorum. In all, records show tribes donated $11,000 to Santorum or his political action committee.

Survey USA has released their latest poll on the job performance approval of U.S. Senators. Once again, Rick Santorum is in last place. 36% of respondents approve of Rick's job performance, while 55% disapprove.
Not a resident of PA...

The Penn Hills School District, which is paying about $38,000 a year for five of U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum's children to attend a cyber charter school, is looking into whether the Republican senator resides in the district.

In 1997, he and his wife bought the Penn Hills house for $87,800.

School board member Erin Vecchio lives near a two-bedroom house owned by the Santorums, said, "I live right down the street from the man. He's never there. ... He doesn't live here."

In 2001, Rick and his wife bought a house in Leesburg, Va., for $643,361.

Yeah, that Rick sure loves saving the taxpayers money.

Speaking of which, in the softball session that Carol links to, Santorum eloquently knocks Bob Casey with, "So on taxes and spending, he is for spending a bunch more and taxing a bunch more..."

...as opposed to Santorum's spending "a bunch more" and taxing a so much less.

Was the "interview" supposed to make a point?

It's okay for Rick & his wife to sue a doctor for $ 450,000 that included cost of Rick taking care of the home while his wife healed but, now he wants to put a $ 250,000 cap on it for others. Good luck trying to find an attorney to take a med-mal case for that. Any win, would be a loss after legal fees, expert witness, taxes, etc.
