Santorum Made $3.6 Million by Lobbying

An outsider he is not. Former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum might have a tough time painting himself as a warrior against the status quo in Washington now that he’s released his tax returns. It turns out Santorum made $3.6 million as a “consultant” and also claimed a German luxury sedan as a business expense. Santorum has tried to paint himself as an average American and has focused on his humble roots as the grandson of a coal miner to connect with voters. He has tried to downplay his wealth on the campaign trail, highlighting instead his social conservatism.
