Santorum to Romney: “Stop It!!!”

By on 1.16.12 | 8:31PM

Rick Santorum had Mitt Romney on the defensive concerning the Romney PAC ad which said that Santorum voted in favor of legislation allowing convicted felons to vote. In fact, the vote Santorum made applied to felons who had served their sentence and paid their debt to society.

Santorum then asked Romney if he favored his position. Romney replied that he opposes restoring the right of violent felons to vote. Santorum countered by asking if he felt so strongly about it why didn't he change the law when he was Governor of Massachusetts. Romney said he could not do so because the legislature was 85% Democratic. He then added that he had no control of what PACs did in his name. Santorum disagreed and that Romney could have told the PACs to "Stop it!!!"
