Rick Santorum: Snake in the grass

This "Biography" page lines out Santorum's story of corruption. Here is an excerpt, but there is much more:

"Early in the George W. Bush administration, along with Dick Armey, Tom DeLay, and Grover Norquist, Santorum was at the center of the Republicans' tactic of pressuring lobbying firms to hire only Republicans. At regularly scheduled once-weekly meetings held since Republicans took Congress and in 1994, Santorum and other leading Republicans were provided with a list of job openings at lobbying companies, and literally told the lobbyists who to hire -- always well-connected Republicans. Called the "K Street Project" because most lobbying firms have offices on Washington's K Street, the idea backfired when the lobbyists' "freeze-out" of Democrats became so successful that all the legislators on the take from crooked lobbyist Jack Abramoff were Republicans. When the arrangement was first reported in 2006, Santorum denied it was true and claimed to not even know Abramoff. When it was proven that Abramoff had been involved, Santorum announced that the "K Street" meetings had been ended. Months later it was reported that the meetings between lobbyists and Republicans were still being held weekly at the same time, place, and day. In 2006, the non-partisan Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington named Santorum one of the twenty most corrupt US legislators."

Washington was a George Soros organization - can anyone validate -please?

You heard

Santorum say CREW is a "Soros-like left wing organization"...

The word Soros is used by the right wing the way the word racist is used by the left wing.

When you catch the right wing in a lie or a devastating truth they use the word Soros to blow you off.
