Senator Rick Santorum and Russian Agent Maria Butina

Senator Rick Santorum has reportedly hired a firm to scrub from the Internet this photo of him with the convicted Russian agent, Maria Butina. For some reason, Mr. Santorum does not want folks to remember he cozied up to Ms. Butina. I wonder, why. It looks like a pretty nice photo. The two of them do appear to be very friendly.

I wonder what they spoke about… NRA money, perhaps? Our new president? Traveling to Moscow? Kompromat?

And, apparently, the band Violent Femmes found this unlikely relationship particularly interesting. In fact, they found it interesting enough to inspire a song: Confessions v3

In any case, it seems important that we all remember that Senator Rick Santorum is one of the many influential men in government with whom Ms. Butina cultivated a special relationship.
