Wait, there’s more! Quite apart from all the unsavory legal aspects of SuperPACS, there’s Santorum’s typically fake Republican “charity” PAC to line his own pockets. Finally, the coup de gras, as they say in, well, the Republicans' favorite European piñata: SHOCKER! The Santorum Clan in Italy of which he spoke so lovingly “were red communists to the core.”
OH, MY. OH.MY.GAWD.“But on the other side of the ocean, it’s like his family here doesn’t exist. Instead he draws crowds as the head of the ultraconservative faction of the Republican party, against divorce, gay marriage, abortion, and immigration.
Those politics don’t play well in Riva del Garda, a community of ultraliberals. On the campaign trail, Santorum often touts his grandfather’s flight from Italy “to escape fascism,” but he has neglected to publicly mention their close ties with the Italian Communist Party,” according to Oggi Magazine journalist Guiseppe Fumagalli.
