Apparently this guy is out to get in the publics pocket:
Penn Hills school officials waited too long before questioning the residency of U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum and his family, according to a preliminary
ruling by the Pennsylvania Department of Education. As a result, Santorum is still considered a Penn Hills resident and does not need to repay the
Penn Hills School District the tuition it spent for the senator's eldest five children to attend the Pennsylvania Cyber Charter School.
The ruling was made by Barry Kramer, chief hearing officer for the state's Office of General Counsel. Estimates of the amount in question ranged from
the $34,000 Santorum claims was paid to the $67,000 school board members say they paid.
The house on Stephens Lane that the Santorums bought in 1997 after moving from Mt. Lebanon has been rented out almost since it was purchased, Vecchio
said. Santorum often votes in Penn Hills by absentee ballot and although his driver's license lists the Stephens Lane address as his residence,
Santorum freely acknowledges that he and his family spend most of their time in their home in Leesburg, Va., because he usually is working in
"I guess because he's a U.S. senator, he can get away with anything," Vecchio said.
