A friend of mine from work passed this story along to me today, as she knows I’m a Rick Santorum supporter. My co-worker’s husband is an old high school friend of Brad Smith, the father featured in this story, whose daughter was also born with the same genetic disorder as Sen. Santorum’s daughter, Bella Santorum: Trisomy 18. From the story in the U.K. Daily Mail:
When a Michigan family was looking for answers to help their sick daughter in 2010, the last place they expected sound medical advice was from a man who would one day be running for president.
But Brad and Jesi Smith found answers from then-Senator Rick Santorum to help their then 22-month-old daughter Faith.
The smiling brunette girl suffers from the same genetic disorder – Trisomy 18 – as Mr Santorum’s youngest daughter Bella.
The Rochester Hills, Michigan family told the Detroit Free Press about their incredible encounter with Mr Santorum two years ago, and the advice the family claims saved their daughter’s life.
When Faith was born, doctors said the outlook was bleak. She was diagnosed with Trisomy 18, a genetic disorder that causes heart defects, kidney problems, delayed growth, and a small head.
Private Investigator, TJ Ward, sat down with CBS Atlanta’s Mike Paluska to analyze both the press conference speech Herma Cain gave, as well as the speech given by Sharon Bialek when she was trotted out by attention-seeking attorney, Gloria Allred. The results? Not so surprising to those of us who know Herman Cain.
CBS Atlanta’s Mike Paluska played Cain’s speech for Ward into the software and watched as it analyzed Cain’s every word.
If he is hiding something this thing would have spiked way down here,” said Ward. “He is being truthful, totally truthful. He is a man with integrity and he talked directly about not knowing any incident he is accused of.”
The software analyzes the stress level and other factors in your voice. During the speech, when Cain denied the claims, the lie detector read “low risk.” According to Ward, that means Cain is telling the truth.
During the section of Bialek’s news conference where she says, “He suddenly reached over put his hand on my leg under my skirt and reached for my genitals he also grabbed my head brought it towards his crotch.”
