Momma’s boy: Santorum holds congressional record for ‘mother’ 

When it comes to their mothers, are the nation’s lawmakers getting forgetful?
With Mother’s Day coming up, Sunlight decided to use our Capitol Words tool to see who in Congress talks about mom the most. Our database, which searches the Congressional Record back to 1996, indicates that talk of “mother” and “mom” has been tailing off in more recent years. Several of Congress’ top mother- and mom-mentioners are no longer in the nation’s top debating society.
