Democrat defends New York City values, attacks Santorum

A House Democrat took offense at Rick Santorum after the GOP presidential candidate suggested the “values” represented in the middle of the country are different from those held by New York City residents.
 
Rep. Joseph Crowley (D-N.Y.) took to Twitter on Monday to defend his New York constituents, attacking Santorum over the perceived slight.

RepJoeCrowley: @RickSantorum thinks NY & LA don't have 'real American values' nyti.ms/xGkyWS #NYLAUSAValues


“You just stick with us, you go out and vote for your values and trust what you know,” Santorum told supporters following his win in the Kansas caucuses over the weekend, according to a report by The New York Times that Crowley linked to in his tweets. “Because you don’t live in New York City. You don’t live in Los Angeles. You live like most Americans in between those two cities, and you know the values you believe in.”

Crowley went on to offer Santorum a tour of his district, which includes parts of Queens and the Bronx. He offered to let Santorum meet 9/11 first-responders so that Santorum could see firsthand what “real American values” look like.
