Rick Santorum and Jerry Sandusky

Why has Rick Santorum not been questioned about his connections and support of Jerry Sandusky?

Ron Paul overlooked a couple sentences that went into his newsletter decades ago, and has been scrutinized and questioned repeatedly about it for the last 14 years.

So why not the same scrutiny for Santorum's sponsership of Sandusky to recieve the congressional angels in adoption award? Paul has disavowed anything to do with the racism that appeared in his newsletter which he never knew about, but we still haven't heard if Santorum disavows his outright honor of Sandusky.

Some might say that this is a low blow because it goes against everything Santorum speaks about just like Paul and the newsletters, but consider that Santorum is also a Penn State alumni. Could he be one of the big whigs that Sandusky was grooming these kids for?

Normally I would not push this, but considering that the media feels it so relevent to berate the newsletters to death, I think it is only necessary to question Santorum about this for the next 14 years every time he does an interview to make sure he is thoroughly vetted like Paul. After all, Santorum made his mistake as a representative of the people, and Paul's was done as an individual. Santorum's actually used our tax dollars to prop up Sandusky as he molested young boys.

Of course there are other issues that Santorum falls flat on his face as a conservative, but this is the one that would discredit him the most once seared into people's minds like Paul's newsletters are, by the media.

Santorum Nominated Penn State

Santorum Nominated Penn State Jerry Sandusky for a “Congressional Angels in Adoption Award,” AFTER Sandusky Was Accused!

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.

Also, NO QUESTIONING regarding PLANNED PARENTHOOD

It's "ok" for RICK SANTORUM to pass any bill against his beliefs, just so long as he can get what he wants. Below is the Planned Parenthood website link explaining TITLE X, and how it funded birth control pills (which is solidly against Catholic catechism).

I think it is fair to ask

I think it is fair to ask Santorum about his relationship, connections, and support for Sandusky.

"Could he be one of the big whigs that Sandusky was grooming these kids for?"

It is not fair to assume or insinuate that he knew Jerry Sandusky was abusing young boys or that he was involved somehow. That would be slander.

For sure!

I second that.

Please cite the Constitutional authority for going to war without a declaration of war by congress.

I don't get the hushers. Santorum lobbied to give the

special Congressional award to Sandusky - he nominated him. He should be asked about how much he knew about Sandusky's behavior and the many allegations of abuse that have been made over the years against Sandusky. Absolutely. Ask for an answer.
Here it is on RonPaulForums:

Is there any truth about this

Is there any truth about this Santorum / Sandusky scandal?

Sandusky had been accused of abuse

BEFORE Santorum gave him that award which looks VERY bad. My understanding is that he had boys working as pages or in some position that were from Sanduskys organization. The thing about this story is that the MSM is sitting on it. They are saving it to use later to sink him. Major baggage. Another thing could be that so many powerful people are implicated in that scandal that the MSM won't touch it for fear of shining a spotlight on the "wrong" people.

Thanks for that important

Thanks for that important info...And we'll bury this story too.
...for now.

Sorry for the lapse in

Sorry for the lapse in judgement, it just irks me that Paul has been accused and accused over stupid stuff that isn't true, but Santorum gets a pass on stories like these.

Where's the lapse in judgement?

"Could he be one of the....?" You could take that out if you feel it was bad to make a conjecture about their connection. But there's nothing wrong with asking Santorum about this - it's only right.

A better question is: Having

A better question is: Having never served in the military what makes you think you are fit to be Commander in Chief?

We currently have someone sitting in Oval Office who also never served yet thinks he knows what he's doing.

What makes anyone think they can ever know what's best for our troops, if they've never walked in their boots?

we need to review this guy

BUT not like this. as the person at the bottom said, unless there is real legitimate info on this aside from simply engaging in normal friendly behavior as many did with Sandusky, you are going down a vile path of false accusation. Unbecoming of a RP supporter.

Focus on, instead, policy and actual corruption.

Regarding winning -
This must be done the right way or else we are no better than the people we rail against.

We Need To Vet This Guy - No One Else Will [ADD TO THIS]

We need a candidate book/dossier on this guy. We need a separate file that we can add to, starting with the CREW assessment that he was one of the most corrupt congressmen in 2005 & 2006.

True, he may fizzle out very soon, but we can get him there sooner rather than latter...

[1] Corruption - http://goo.gl/y2z74

[2] Others...

Vetted is one thing, accusations like this are quite another.

I urge all of you in the STRONGEST of terms to avoid this sort of talk unless you have some kind of information. In that case, you shouldn't be sharing it here...you should be taking it to the police.

This is not some sort of a policy and voting record discussion. What you are doing is accusing him of criminal or near-criminal behavior. Unless you have evidence, you should let this go.

We do know he nominated this guy

he needs to be held accountable for his support, it goes to judgement of character, I'm not suggesting Santorum is a child molester,but it's a fact that he supported one to receive a congressional honor.

Scandals

Anyone think this is one of the things RP was talking about, candidates being one scandal away from being knocked out the race?

I don't think we need to

I don't think we need to worry so much about Santorum except in the area of getting his supporters to support Paul when he fizzles (which is going to happen soon).

Voted Down

Rick Santorum is many, many terrible things. None of that is an excuse, even in a VERY oblique way, to accuse him of being a child molester or a supporter of child molestation. Having this here weakens all of us and Dr. Paul.

VOTED DOWN.

Child Molester

But he should be called into account for his unfettered support of a child molester.
