HOT: Santorum Named "Most Corrupt" Senator by Watchdog Group in 2006

Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) issued a report in 2006 entitled "Beyond DeLay: The 20 Most Corrupt Members of Congress (and five to watch)." From their site: "This encyclopedic report on corruption in the 109th Congress documents the egregious, unethical and possibly illegal activities of the most tainted members of Congress."

Santorum was one of only three senators named in the report.

The Rick Santorum You Don't Know

By a Pennsylvania journalist who has been following him for years. Here is his top ten list of what most people do not know.

Santorum was trending on twitter, just dropped off the map.

There is still time

To ask some questions.

Not a credible source

I wouldn't use this information.

This is crap from a Soros funded NWO group.

I agree with both of you

It is too late and also this is a bad source. I have tried on blogs etc. to just get tho0se in other parts of the country to ask folks from PA about Santorum and why he had the worst defeat for a republican incumbent in state history. This guy is a pandering fraud.
Here is some fun reading from the Pittsburgh Post Gazzette http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/06176/700771-149.stm

Too late to be talking about

Too late to be talking about vetting information sources on the unvetted candidate.

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.

I just sent almost every link

to the Des Moines Register.
Here is what I sent, the compilation of links from this thread-

Santorum's logo on his

Santorum's logo on his official site looks bad to me when considering his pedophile priest support quotes.

It's Sant with an O with an Eagle in it, than Rum.

I doubt it's an accidently. He's like all the other NWO candidates, keeps looking worse the more you look.

Has this been sent to

the DesMoines Register? Or any Iowa TV stations? There is still time to get this to them before their 10PM news broadcast.
If anyone has their emails and can do this, respond please.
It would take me a while to gather the info to do this. The faster it gets there, the better.

Why the Neocon Radio Hosts All Work Together

Someone in this tread asked WHY Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, etc. all beat the same drum.

Check it out ...

Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and Fox News Radio are all syndicated by the SAME radio network: Premier Networks.

http://premiereradio.com/category/view/talk.html

Premier Networks is owned by Clear Channel Communications.

http://www.clearchannel.com/radio/pressrelease.aspx?pressrel...

Clear Channel Communicates was bought by Bain Capital in 2008, Mitt Romney's company.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2007/12/14/romneys-bain-capita...

Meanwhile ...

Mark Levin, Mike Huckabee, and ABC News Radio are all syndcated by Cumulus Media.

http://www.abcradio.com/Article.asp?id=361161

Cumulus Media is a public company, and the major shareholder is Crestview Partners.

http://finance.yahoo.com/q/mh?s=CMLS+Major+Holders

By the way, Bain Capital also owns part of Cumulus, as does Thomas Lee Partners. Bain Capital and Thomas Lee Partners are the ones who bought Clear Channel. If you add up all the stock of Cumulus that is owned by Crestview Partners, Bain Capital, and Thomas Lee Partners, it adds up to almost 50%. Add in Blackstone and JP Morgan, and it's more than 50%.

Who owns Crestview Partners?

It's a partnership, so the partners own it. It was founded in 2004 by guys from Goldman Sachs.

So ...

Why do all the Neocon radio hosts and networks hate Ron Paul and talk up Gingrich, Santorum, etc.???

FOLLOW. THE. MONEY.

YOUTUBE VIDEO called: "Follow The Money"

And add this:

I read on a YouTube comment that Cnn is owned by Time/warner whose CEO is a director on the Council on Foreign Relations AND on the board at Yale.

That YouTube comment was for the video of CNN cutting off the soldier from Iraq who was supporting Ron's foreign policy:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rvzeowlqmBI&feature=related

I would LOVE to see this video.
Anyone have the skills?

Understood perfectly...heard too many times on the radio.

I've commented on the radio hosts a couple times here. My local pundit is Mark Belling and many of us have probably heard him while sitting in for Rush Limbaugh. I've listened to him here in Milwaukee on WISN 1130 radio which is owned by Clear Channel also. So the thread snags here also.

I've had to listen to Belling too many times yell and even scream on the radio about Ron Paul.

Thanks again for your post.

The night is far spent, the day is at hand.
And those who have not heard shall understand.

Thanks for the information

!

Brilliant Post

Thank you, you're doing a great service connecting these dots and peeling back the veil to see who's pulling the strings.

What is interesting about

What is interesting about that is that Rick Santorum backtracked on earmarks, while Ron Paul stood his ground and explained why they are important under the way the current system works.

Santorum represents the Lieberman wing of the party

I seen the Santorum interview with the Shepherd of Fox. The Santorum said to the Fox Shepherd "Ron Paul represents the Dennis Kucinich wing of the party".

I'd love to remind conservatives of Rick Santorum's close relationship with Joe Lieberman. But then it dawns on me the GOP considers Joe Lieberman a conservative of higher value to the Republican party than Dr Paul, a man who represents the Goldwater wing.

CT RON PAUL suporter here...

Lieberman is my Senator. He is literally the worst, most corrput, and deceptive oligarch. YUCK. He sucessfully convinced the CT demoracts to support the war. He had a campaign stop at our shoe repair store during his campaign and WOW is he a smooth talker...but I was a Neoconservative back then...Amazing how blind I was. It's good to be awake.
