Did the WH offer Sestak a job to let Specter win in PA?

If this story pans out, the WH is going to be in big trouble. Of course, I expect the MSM to either ignore the story or cover for them, but the fact is that if Obama and his people tried to buy Sestak off with a job offer, to keep that traitor party switcher career politician Specter from going down in flames like he did anyway, they broke the law that forbids government from trying to influence elections by offering or threatening job loss to sway someone.

The White House was backing incumbent Sen. Arlen Specter (D-Pa.) in the primary. Sestak acknowledged in an interview in February that he was offered a position by an unnamed White House official - a potential violation of federal law - but has not offered any specifics on conversation. Republicans are trying to use the issue against Sestak in the November Senate race.

“It’s interesting. I was asked a question about something that happened months earlier, and I felt that I should answer it honestly, and that’s all I had to say about it.” Sestak said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “Anybody else has to decide on what they will say upon their role. That’s their responsibility.”

Yet Sestak confirmed to NBC’s David Gregory that the incident did take place.

I say we need an investigation at a minimum. Can you imagine the news cycle if this happened while Bush was in the WH? At a minimum, if it comes out that Sestak was playing fast & loose with the facts, embellishing or misrepresenting what happened, for whatever reason, it should be public knowledge before the election. Like that moron in my state, Blumenthal, they should not get passes for this kind of stuff. If Sestak however is telling the truth, there should be consequences for these most ethical people ever. At a minimum we should get to rub these condescending liberal’s faces in the dog doo as they deserve.

We’re also supposed to believe Blagojevich acted on his own; that the administration (Obama) had no hand in that either?  Sorry, Barry, the more you shut up and cover up, the less I believe.  And it doesn’t help when you make inferences that the internet blogs and talk radio need to be silenced.

It may be a good idea to buy stock in a rope making company.
