Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA) has been suffering from a debilitating case of amnesia about his leadership of the K Street Project and his close ties to Jack Abramoff.

Santorum’s latest lapse is over fellow K Street Project pioneer Grover Norquist (who has a whole page on his organization’s website devoted to the K Street Project). Here’s Santorum yesterday:

I had absolutely nothing to do — never met, never talked, never coordinated, never did anything — with Grover Norquist and the — quote — K Street Project.

But the connection between Santorum, Norquist, and the K Street Project is in the public record. In 2002, Norquist described meeting with the K Street Project:

He [Santorum] has gotten me in to talk to all those guys [in the K Street Project].

At the time, Santorum even admitted that he “allowed Norquist to speak to the group.”

Santorum’s amnesia is getting so bad, it may be time for Senator Frist, M.D., to step in. Maybe he’ll conduct one of his famous video diagnoses using this 2005 tape of Santorum and Norquist (who, of course, have “never met”):
