Rick Santorum doesn't live here anymore

Rick Santorum, who's faced allegations for a long time now that, contrary to the law, his legal residence isn't actually located in the state he represents, just received a fresh blow on the subject, just as Democrat Bob Casey is breathing down his neck in the latest polls...

From a Pittsburgh Post-Gazette editorial:


"…the newspaper sent a letter to Rick Santorum at his home address, at least the one that he claims. Back from Penn Hills came the letter with a sticker from the U.S. Postal Service checked as 'Not Deliverable As Addressed -- Unable To Forward…' He doesn't live here anymore…We have a feeling that those who do live here may have something to say about this cowardly tactic at the November polls."
He doesn't live here anymore.

It's also come to symbolize Santorum's ability to represent the voters in his state.
