The latest challenger to Mitt Romney's run for the GOP presidential nomination is former Pennsylvania U.S. Senator Rick Santorum, whose surge in the final week of the Iowa Caucus has given him a new lease on life in the campaign.
One thing commentators on the right and left agreed upon after Tuesday night, when he came just 8 votes shy of defeating Romney, was that his record in office was going to get a lot more scrutiny, because frankly, it hasn't, as he has maintained (along with Jon Huntsman) his position at the bottom of the pack.
A fantastic critique comes from a column by Philadelphia Daily News progressive blogger Will Bunch, who goes over parts of Santorum's life in public office that still aren't receiving the attention of the national political reporting class.
Bunch has closely covered Santorum from the time he became a U.S. Senator in Pennsylvania, and lists a series of issues that show him in less than a favorable light. And it's got nothing to do with his "Google problem," or his sometimes bizarre comments about homosexuality.
