Santorum on his face (video)

News & Politics

Watch Santorum [VIDEO], whose "charity" and political campaigns overlap quite a bit, squirm under the queries of a vigilant reporter.

From Jim Parsons' report:

But Santorum's charity has also put money -- $216,000 -- into unexplained travel and meetings through 2004.
That's almost half of the $501,000 donated to community organizations, mostly in Philadelphia.
Though Santorum claims that his charity and politics are separate, he did put a lobbyist (who he denies is a lobbyist despite ample evidence to the contrary) on the charity's board of advisers.

Oh, and he also happens to be a lobbyist for Alcoa, which just happened to have gotten a sweet $1.9 million military contract which just happened to have been played up by Santorum. (Team4)
