This information may be useful for the campaign. Instead of letting Santorum attack Dr. Paul on foreign policy, he should be attacked and put on the defensive for fraud, support of individual mandate, raising debt limits and ethanol subsidies.


On May 16, 2007, Santorum acquired 10,000 options to purchase Class B common stock. On November 21, 2009, he received another option for 5,000. In 2010, it was options for 15,000 shares and another 15,000 as recently as January 21, 2011, as Santorum begin to entertain thoughts of running for President.
Here’s why the media will be interested.

On March 2, 2010, nearly three years after Santorum was appointed to the UHS board of directors, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) filed a complaint against UHS for billing Medicaid for “inpatient psychiatric care that was not provided.” The company received Medicaid funds to provide psychiatric counseling and treatment to boys ages 11 to 17.

According to the Department of Justice, UHS “[took] advantage of troubled children in order to feed their own desire for wealth.”
It’s kind of hard to claim complete ignorance of federal charges against a company on whose board he sat for over four years.
