Progress Iowa Calls For A Probe Of Santorum – Roll Over Rover It’s Ricky’s Turn!

Yesterday we posted that ABC news was reporting that “Frothy Mix” Rick Santorum was under suspicion of paying Anti-Gay Leader Bob Vander Platts head of the Iowa Family Leader anti-gay hate group for Santorums GOP Presidential endorsement.

Today Progress Iowa has called for a federal investigation into the allegations and  has launched a petition to the Federal Elections Commission about it.

“Any coordination between a campaign and an outside group on campaign expenditures such as advertising is illegal. Progress Iowa’s petition calls on the FEC to investigate the Family Leader and Bob Vander Plaats for any potential illegal coordination between the group and the Santorum campaign. “In light of news of Vander Plaats’ PAC launching robocalls in Iowa on behalf of Santorum after he solicited fundraising help, the FEC must look into any coordination between the Family Leader and the campaign.”

On Thursday Vander Platts released a statement saying that there was “absolutely no “quid pro quo” for the endorsement and absolutely no “coordination” with the campaign.”

“I am simply an endorsing voice,” he said. “We are abiding by all ethics, rules and standards. Rick Santorum’s commitment to our core values, his conservative vision for America, and his ability to defeat Obama earned my endorsement.”

The santorum is about to hit the fan!  Ker splatt!
