Rick Santorum's Son Loses Race For Class President
John Santorum takes after his father when it comes to politics: They have both campaigned for the office of president, and now they both have lost.
Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum's son John lost his race to become class president at the Citadel, a public military college in South Carolina.
The election of next year's sophomore class president (class of 2016) was held Wednesday, Charlene Gunnells of the Citadel's media relations office told The Huffington Post. John, currently a freshman, did not win the post.
John ran on a conservative, sketchily detailed platform, declaring in one photo on his Facebook page, "I Love America & I Love Guns." In the same photo, he also claimed to have what may be a first for a candidate for student government: an "A+" rating from the NRA.
The Citadel did not announce the name of the new class president-elect, confirming only that it is not John.
The elder Santorum won neither the South Carolina primary, nor ultimately the Republican presidential nomination in 2012. Santorum did, however, receive the Nathan Hale Patriot Award when he spoke before the Citadel Republican Society on Jan. 20, 2012.
I laugh every time I see R3's photo. The kids look like "daddy's unemployed!"
I thought his spawn were all " home skooled"!
I guess God didn't want either of them to succeed.
I recall reading they went to the Opus Dei school outside DC, back when he had a job. Maybe it was just the boys.
Maybe the womenfolk were homeskooled, or all of them when they moved back to PA?
I love how the daughter and the doll are wearing matching jumpers. How Cindy Brady and Kitty Karry-All!
Where did they get the daughter's clothes in R3's link? The 1800's?
"I recall reading they went to the Opus Dei school outside DC."
They went to some private school and the mother fucker tried to stick the taxpayers of Pennsylvania with the tuition bill. Just another one of the reasons why he's got drummed out of office in 2006.
The man is political poison even in his home state. When it became apparrent Republican Arlen Specter was becoming a political liability the State GOP made no overtures to Santorum to run again.
I am NOT a homelysexual!!!
Only thing better would be for the son to come out.
Hopefully Santorum will be the next Republican to find out he has a gay son.
Loser: like father, like son.
Closeted mo: like father, like son.
I don't like Frothy Lube in the slightest, but I don't think it's right to pick on his underage son. Arianna Huffington is a whore.
