Santorum: Romney’s Super PAC lying about me too


Santorum said today that Romney’s Super PAC is lying about him too, suggesting that Santorum supported voting for Felons. He says that is a lie:

I did vote in the United States Senate that someone who was a felon, who served their time, came out of jail, had served their parole and probation, and after all of that sentencing, then they could go out and have their voting rights renewed. Which by the way is the exact law that’s in South Carolina.

Now Governor Romney has taken that and said ‘Rick Santorum is for felons voting.’ Now that is a lie! … And so to go out and mislead the people of South Carolina as to what our record is on this is just, YUCK!

I expect that from Barak Obama. I don’t expect that from a Republican running for president. We’re better than that!

Earlier in the day on Fox News Sunday, Santorum called on Romney to tell his Super PAC to pull the ad:

I hope Governor Romney will have his PAC take down an ad that’s running against me in South Carolina saying that I want felons to be able to vote. That’s an absolute lie, ” Santorum said in an interview with “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace. “Romney should be saying to his PAC, take that ad down, it’s false.
