Santorum staffers help put together site on illegal immigration

WILKES-BARRE, Pa. - Two members of Sen. Rick Santorum's re-election campaign helped put together a Web site promoting a proposed Hazleton ordinance that would crack down on illegal immigration.
Eric Miller, a member of Santorum's campaign staff, created and registered http://www.smalltowndefenders.com at the request of Luke Bernstein, Santorum's deputy campaign manager, Hazleton solicitor Christopher Slusser told The Citizens' Voice for a story published Wednesday.

The ordinance was proposed by Lou Barletta, the Republican mayor of Hazleton. Barletta is a regional campaign coordinator for Santorum, a two-term Republican incumbent who is challenged by Democrat Bob Casey. Santorum has made cracking down on illegal immigration a major issue in his campaign.

Virginia Davis, a Santorum spokeswoman, said the campaign is not connected to the Hazleton ordinance, and that the work performed for Barletta is a "non-issue" since it was done on personal time.
Slusser said the site was "not ever intended to be a site that was created at the behest of (Santorum)."
