Rick Santorum, who has marketed himself as the conservative Republican candidate who can defeat the liberal Barack Obama, is complaining the Obama Justice Department isn’t doing enough to crackdown on pornography.

The Christian Post reports that Santorum had said on his campaign website that President Obama favored pornographers over children.

On CNN on Sunday, he remarked:

“The proof is in the prosecution.

The Village Voice also reported that by the time the New Yorker had revealed the existence of the probe in February 2011, the investigation had been over for about four months.
