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.

You mean "Mr. China" Wonder

You mean "Mr. China"

Wonder if his company is investing all that money it's saving by using cheap Chinese labor back here in the good old U S of A? Or is he propping up the Chinese economy?

He only employees about 17% of his company's workforce in America.

When it comes to America's economy Huntsman is part of the problem...not the solution.

All three notified by little ole' me :).

Don't know folks are getting

Don't know folks are getting all wound up over Santorum. I was happy with him siphoning off the Romney vote.

maybe, at least in part, bc

maybe, at least in part, bc Steve Deace (who endorsed Gingrich) said Santorum has a good shot at 2nd in Iowa with RP 1st... that is, unless "non-traditional" RP voters don't get out to vote, then he places Santorum with 1st.

but Santorum doesn't matter, imho. Let him take the Romney votes, if he can. He won't get the RP votes! :)

And

You never know when you make someone finally say to themselves "they really are all corrupt, I have got to go with Ron Paul!"

Just submitted this to KCCI TV

in Des Moines using their "news tip" feature on their contact us page :):).

Local TV news might be the way to go.

LIKELY THE BEST, SHORT-TERM IDEA

Does anyone live in Iowa and/or have a list of prominent, LOCAL tv news stations? I'll Google it, but if someone is in the know, PLEASE LIST.

The moneybomb for Rick

The moneybomb for Rick Santorum's Iowa run is around $257K today....Can we get a *heck yes!* to splitting the neocon vote! And wasting neocon voter money, lol!

Makes him another perfect establishment candidate...

...easily bought, and lacking a moral compass to take a principled stand against abuse and corruption in government.

Absolutely DAMNING Evidence

Wow. I just read the PDF and we need to get the word out on this stuff. Anyone with scruples would surely drop this guy like a red hot rock.

How is this kinda of crap tolerated?

P.S. If he is always portrayed as squeaky clean then I wonder what people have on Gingrich.

"Liberty's too precious a thing to be buried in books...Men should hold it up in front of them every single day of their lives and say: 'I'm free to think and to speak. My ancestors couldn't. I can. And my children will."

Gingrich and Santorum are

Gingrich and Santorum are both being supported by Scaife (newsmax owner), who is also from Pennsylvania like Santorum (lots of funding there). Scaife just paid for Gingrich's 30 minute ads too. Look at whose being pumped on Newsmax at the moment.

Look up their funding online. They are also both coincidentally two of the primary figures involved in the Clinton impeachment. Gingrich was the house speaker, who resigned during it. Santorum was helping to run it in senate.
http://www.wnd.com/2011/12/373665/

Scaife was behind a large amount of the funding of the Clinton scandal investigations in the 90s that led to the impeachment hearings. A man who previously worked for military intelligence died when investigating that and Scaife's connections to intelligence - with his dead body right outside Scaife's office doors, and right in the middle of the impeachment hearings:

I think everyone is overloading the system

if you get a timeout. wnd just put up a new system yesterday, and apparantly it isn't handling the traffic. I get it if I wait or try again.

How the F*ck does this not get any scrutiny in the media? They pick up a 20 year old newsletter that Dr. Paul didn't even write and beat it to death. I know the media has certain "slanted views," but THIS IS BEYOND RIDICULOUS.

According to what I read

he appears to have a problem with accepting bribes. Unbelievable old media bias for not digging this up.

Pretty bad stuff on

The loan stuff and school stuff

Yup

I wonder how Iowans will like getting their noses rubbed in blatant media manipulation.

It's not always with bad

It's not always with bad intentions, that things don't get reported. Sometimes the media just don't know about it...

To be sure, especially Politico is (in my opinion) having an agenda. They went all out on Herman Cain and since december they continuously attack Ron Paul, while they never went after Gingrich and Romney.

This morning Politico started a small critical article on Santorum: http://www.politico.com//blogs/burns-haberman/2012/01/santor...

So perhaps these Romney-newssites are willing to send out a real damaging article on Santorum as well? I really believe a lot of media are willing to cover this story, once they learn about it. Spread this message; it can change the news tomorrow!!

I just replied to that article

It is a facebook comment section so it makes it easy!

He voted to raise deficit 5 times in six years before getting

thrown out of his own state.. Pound him everywhere you can -this guy is a neocon of the most disgusting order
