Santorum’s College Professor Speaks Out
March 2, 2012 1 Comment
“One of the professors I had been speaking to—political scientist Bob O’Connor, who taught Santorum in four different classes—thought his allegation was absurd. “He really has a rich fantasy life,” O’Connor told me yesterday via email. “PSU in the 1970s was not exactly Berkeley. I resent this sort of accusation [that] I and my colleagues graded students on the basis of their political attitudes. Ridiculous.”
I’m glad Dr. O’Connor came forward. It’s an insult of the highest order to claim low grades because of some kind of personal bias or vendetta.
The Huffington Post spoke to some of his fraternity brothers as well. (Why am I not surprised to learn Santorum was in a fraternity? Ugh.)
I find myself asking this question a lot this week: why the hell would you lie, when the truth can be so easily exposed by another person?
