Skip to comments.More questions raised about Santorum residency (2004 hit piece)

Marcie Lucci is one of several Penn Hills residents upset her taxes are paying for U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum's children to attend a cyber charter school.
The Republican senator owns a home in Penn Hills, but lives in Leesburg, Va.
Penn Hills School District is paying $38,000 this year for five Santorum children to attend Pennsylvania Cyber Charter School based in Midland, Beaver County. The district has paid an additional $62,000 for his children to attend the school since 2001.
"It might not be illegal to bill Penn Hills for their education, but it is deceitful, unethical and immoral," said Lucci, a mother of two school district children. "It is outrageous he is doing this."

This Santorum School Scandal was not brought up by Rick when he publicly attacked Newt Gingrich for supposed ethical violations (which proved to be politically motivated). It is really ironic that Rick Santorum ran for public office attacking opponents because of questionable residency issues.
Given his previous political attacks on others, it should be pointed out that not only is Rick a lawyer, but it turns out that his wife also has a law degree (from a recent article in which they sued a chiropractor for causing her "permanent injuries"),they have little excuse for their actions which could be considered criminal in some jurisdictions.
Didn’t take long for the hit pieces.
My property taxes pay for local schools. Where’s the scandal since he pays Pennsylvania property taxes too.
If his kids were anchor babies, this wouldn’t be an issue ...
Hit pieces from the same one or two posters, BTW.
How pathetic. GO RICK!!!!! Bob
Maybe if you pull up an article from '98 denouncing Al D'Amato, Chuckie will give you a second gold star and a pat on the head!
Apart from a few favorable posts about Newt, virtually all of your recent posts have been attacks on Rick Santorum.
If you really think Newt is the best there is, fine, but this is not the best way to show it.
I own four properties in NC, pay property taxes on all of them, home schooled my kids - but didn’t get this kind of break.
I am a Newt supporter, but I like Santorum.
This is a bullshit scandal.
If he was paying property taxes on his home in PA while his family lived in VA so that he could serve the people of PA in the US Senate, then there was nothing unethical about it. Plus participating in the program which for Pennsylvanians kept him and his family connected to their own state’s education regime. Oh yeah: being Mormon is waaaaaaaaaaaaay wackier than homeschooling.
Why is Penn Hills on the hook for his children’s schooling. If you go to Catholic school, the government doesn’t pay for it.
Those who LIVE in a locale, but do not OWN property, still vote on Tax issues that don't affect them.
Not at all un-like the voters who LIVE OFF OTHERS (aka, Parasites) via EBT's, Welfare, Food Stamps, Medicaid, etc., who vote in their interest as they don't have to PAY FOR IT.
If you don't pay taxes, you should NOT be allowed to vote, period.
Just think how smart that lady is, all those kids, a degree in nursing and a law degree. You jealous of her IQ?? Oh, and that is federal education money and it is fungible.
You don’t have to love Santorum to recognize the pure idiocy of bringing him down.
Looks to me like the original poster was a McCain supporter in the past anyway.
Rick is about to find out how it feels being in the middle of a Shyt storm.
Personally, I think that’s pretty ugly...no trees. Blah.
Marcie.....you educate your children the way you want to,....and let the Santorums educate their children the way they think best.
I can’t take another round of destroy the conservative leader. We honestly need to rally around Rick, I think it’s our last chance to get some enthusiasm for a candidate and that’s the only way to defeat Romney. If we look for the negatives and turn our backs on him, the other side will win by default.
One disclaimer, if Newt makes a comeback, I’m all in for him too but we need to band together for a conservative candidate.
