Santorum and Foster Friess Just Friends

Santorum and Foster Friess Just Friends

He’s been bankrolling your SuperPac, and I know you know, by law, you’re not allowed to discuss campaign strategy with him, but you’re really close to each other, does that send a bad message?

To which Santorum replied

No. I mean, Foster doesn’t run my Super PAC. He may be a donor to it, but the person who runs my Super PAC I haven’t spoken with in five months. So as far as the conversations we have, Foster has been a long personal friend for 20 years. And we have spent a lot of time together. But we also know what the law is and Foster doesn’t run the Super PAC and we don’t talk about anything regarding those matters. So he’s someone, again, who is a friend and will continue to be a good friend.

Of course O’brien didn’t say that Friess ran his Super PAC, she said that he’s been bankrolling it. Of course that didn’t stop her from not asking anything that might resemble a reasonable followup question. After all, Santorum had already explained that he and Foster both understood the law, and that they’re just good friends.
