Santorum to donate Holt contributions to help SC families

Rick Santorum -- Prezography 2From Press Release

 

Republican presidential candidate and former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum (R-PA) issued the following statement upon learning Earl Holt had contributed to a past political campaign.

“It was brought to my attention late Sunday evening that an individual who led a group cited by the murderer who terrorized the Emanuel AME Church in Charleston had given to one of my past political campaigns.  Rather than put more money back in the pockets of such an individual, my 2012 campaign committee will be donating the amount of his past donations to the Mother Emanuel Hope Fund to support the victims of this tragedy.

“I abhor the sentiments Mr. Holt has expressed.  These statements and sentiments are unacceptable.  Period.  End of sentence.  Our campaign is about, and has always been about, uniting America, not dividing her.”

The Mother Emanuel Hope Fund was established by Charleston Mayor Joseph P. Riley, Jr. to help pay for the funerals, counseling, and other financial needs of Charleston shooting victims’ families.  For more information, please visit: http://www.charleston-sc.gov/index.aspx?NID=1330
