Pennsylvania Dems were right
: Santorum doesn't live here anymore
. Back story -- one or more volunteers went to Santorum's alleged PA residence, confirmed it was empty, and it became a campaign issue. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
tells the rest:
In a letter to [Santorum's Democratic opponent, Bob] Casey, [Santorum] speaks of his "outrage" regarding the actions of the Casey campaign "which have put our six young children at a serious safety risk."
Though that suggestion is far-fetched to the point of absurdity, it would be a potential source of fear only if the senator actually lived in Penn Hills, but -- let us repeat one last time -- the Santorum family is at no risk because he doesn't live here anymore and the family is in Virginia most of the time. So what we have is the senator making untrue and outrageous comments while seeking to hide behind his wife and kids in order to get around an inconvenient fact.
"Mr. Casey described Sen. Santorum's claims as 'weird' and 'bizarre,'" the Post-Gazette
says. "Actually, they are beyond weird and raise serious questions about the senator's ethics that go beyond the residency question." (via Crooks and Liars)
