The scoop from Washington

Santorum asked about Paterno, pornography

| No Comments

CHICAGO--Rick Santorum was pressed about the late Penn State coach Joe Paterno, child sex abuse, the Catholic church and pornograpy during a Sunday interview with Chicago talk show host Bruce DuMont on his WLS-AM show. The Sun-Times political writer Abdon M. Pallasch has the spicy report HERE.

From the Pallasch report: DuMont "asked Santorum to compare his criticism of President Obama for "favoring pornographers over children" for allegedly not targeting child pornography with his lack of criticism of Penn State icon Joe Paterno in that school's child sex abuse scandal or the Catholic church's child sex abuse scandal.

"Santorum, a Penn State alum and a Catholic, said he found the questions "insulting."

Santorum has a heavy media schedule on Monday, the day before the Illinois primary.
