Senator Rick Santorum’s PAWS (Pet Animal Welfare) violated American Rights & Civil Liberties; Animal owners defeated PAWS and Santorum in 2006 but they're back in 2012!
Santorum Slipped On PAWS
Senator Rick Santorum slipping in the polls. Looks like Santorum picked The Wrong Horse because dog owners and PA voters cut off contributions and support!

According to a June 21st 2006 AP poll, Santorum's approval rating has skidded to a four-year low as voters learn of his Privacy and Rights trashing bill (PAWS) the latest sign of distress for the outspoken conservative.
His Democratic opponent, PA state Treasurer Bob Casey, is up by 18 percentage points since early May so Casey now leads Santorum by up to 52 percent. Only 38 percent said they approved of the way Santorum is handling his job and a whopping 45% disapproved.
This is significant because Pennsylvania voters who approved of Bush's handling of the war in Iraq increased to 35 percent, up from 29 percent. So Santorum is going down with PAWS as the president's numbers go up.
More than 40 percent of Casey's supporters said they are more against electing Santorum than they are specifically for Casey. Of course a Santorum spokeswoman said polls are unreliable at this stage in the campaign. Santorum plans to air the first statewide TV commercials of his campaign on Friday, she said. Larry Smar, with the Casey campaign, agreed that it is early but noted that Casey's strength in polling bodes well for the November election.
Could that be why Santorum was making the rounds of the AKC Board? Picking up a little cash contributions? Or looked at another way, could that be why AKC upped the ante? The people said NO TO PAWS and even Republicans are not thrilled with Santorum's positions. Even the Democrats should be proud of this one. Just look what a little dog can do to a hot-shot presidential candidate!
2007 Note: Rick Santorum was in fact voted out or as dog owners prefer to say, "kicked out." His violations of the Constitution, Civil Rights and Liberties did not sit well with Pennsylvania voters. TheDogPlace is proud to have had a major part in informing all voters in PA and animal owners or not, they got it!
