Rick Santorum Says His Paul-Supporting Nephew Is Just Going Through A Phase

It’s like Lord of the Rings.

BRENTWOOD, NH — Rick Santorum downplayed the news that 19-year-old
nephew, John Garver, recently came out in support of Ron Paul. Garver
wrote in the Daily Caller that “My Uncle Rick cannot fathom a society
in which people cooperate and work with each other freely.”.

“I love my nephew,” Santorum told a large crowd at at town hall
meeting in Brentwood tonight. “I have 35 nieces and nephews, so one out of 35 nieces and nephews is pretty good as far as I’m concerned. He’s a Ron Paul supporter, God bless him. I mean, it’s a phase, I understand it. We all go through those things. God bless Johnny, he’s wonderful.”

The same questioner who asked about Garver also wanted to know how
Santorum planned to make voters confident that he wouldn’t be
controlled by corporate interests. Santorum said, “If you’ve seen my financial reports, I’m not getting a lot of money from corporate interests — or any interests, for that matter.”
