It seems that Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum has a problem. With Google.

The problem is that a Google search for Santorum generates results, thanks to columnist Dan Savage, who is gay, that link graphic sexual terms to the socially conservative senator's name, Politico reported. The top two results for Santorum link to sex-relation definitions of the Pennsylvania candidate's name, which were circulated by Savage, a relationship and sex advice columnist, and gay rights activist.

While Santorum in the past has acknowledged his widely covered Google problem, he has now decided to do something about it.  Santorum reportedly contacted Google to remove the inappropriate material. And he's convinced they could do it -- if the company wanted to.

I suspect if something was up there like that about Joe Bide, they'd get rid of it, Santorum said. If you're a responsible business, you don't let things like that happen in your business that have an impact on the country.

To have a business allow that type of filth to be purveyed through their Web site or through their system is something that they say they can't handle, but I suspect that's not true.

Google: Contact Webmaster

Google's response to Santorum was that users who want content removed from the Internet should contact the webmaster of the page directly.

Google's search results are a reflection of the content and information that is available on the Web. company spokesman Gabriel Stricker said in a statement.  Users who want content removed from the Internet should contact the webmaster of the page directly.

 Once the webmaster take the page down from the Web, it will be removed from Google's search results through our usual crawling process. Stricker added that Google does not remove content from our search results, except in very limited cases such as illegal content and violations of our webmaster guidelines.

Santorum was able to, somewhat, use the issue to raise campaign donations.

Savage and his perverted sense of humor is the reason why my children cannot Google their father's name, Santorum wrote in a July letter to campaign supporters, according to Politico. That is why I need your support today and your contribution of $25, $50, $100 or $250 to my campaign. You can help right now by making a small or large contribution to my campaign. Don't let Dan Savage and the extreme left win.
