Rick Santorum has long acknowledged that he has a “Google problem,” but now he’s accusing the company of failing to remove this top search result from its search engine and discriminating against him because of his political beliefs:

I suspect if something was up there like that about Joe Biden, they’d get rid of it,” Santorum said. “If you’re a responsible business, you don’t let things like that happen in your business that have an impact on the country.”

He continued: “To have a business allow that type of filth to be purveyed through their website or through their system is something that they say they can’t handle but I suspect that’s not true.”

Back in June, during an interview on MSNBC, Santorum specifically deflected responsibility from the company, saying, “I don’t know how they treated other circumstances and other situations whether they’ve treated it any different than mine. I’d suggest if they had treated it different and have done things to stop this kind of vile activity, filth on the internet, they should apply it equally to me and to everybody else.”
