Santorum Supporters Fund a Green Party Candidate

To win elections, you have to know how to add -- and subtract. The AP reports that supporters of Rick Santorum provided most of the funding to get a Green Party candidate on the ballot:
Green Party candidate Carl Romanelli, making his first bid for statewide elective office, acknowledged Monday that Republican contributors probably supplied most of the $100,000 that he said he spent gathering signatures to qualify for the Nov. 7 ballot.
Romanelli tried to explain how it is that he isn't being played by the Republicans:
"I have friends in all political parties. It's just that my Republican friends are more confident about standing with me than my Democratic friends. And as a group, my Republican friends are a little better off," he said in a telephone interview.
