Top Santorum donor: Women could use aspirin ‘between their knees’


By Stephen C. Webster/Raw Story

In a startling outburst Thursday, the multimillionaire who’s given most to a super PAC supporting former Senator Rick Santorum (R-PA) for president remarked that universal contraception coverage for women shouldn’t be needed because, “Back in my day, they used Bayer aspirin for contraceptives.”
“The gals put it between their knees and it wasn’t that costly,” he told MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell.
The comment comes by way of Foster Friess, the 71-year-old multi-millionaire former investment manager who’s become the largest donor to the Red, White and Blue fund, which supports the Pennsylvania Republican.
