Get thee to a Santorum...

Pennsylvania tax payers have been picking up the tab for Sen. Rick Santorum kids to "attend" an online PA charter school (though not clear, apparently the children reside on the family estate in VA). The local PA school district wants a refund but won't be getting anything. It waited too late to file the complaint.

According to the local school district, it has paid out over $100,000 for the Santorum five. According to the senator, the amount in question is just $34,000.

So it's really not that bad. Undeniably, bilking the state out of $100,000 is just plain wrong. But, c'mon, $34,000? It just seems...I dunno...less wrong. Don't you think?
