    There wasn't an offer by anyone in the administration so I don't see how it could be called illegal.
    And naturally you were there and heard this exchange?

    Yeah right, glad we have that settled.

    Is it because he is one of you, and not a democrat?
    IF Bush had done this, the Libs would have hauled out the long knives.


    Way Back in Feb Sestak blew the lid off this thing not knowing what he had done.
    Sestak: White House Offered Job To Keep Me Out Of Race. White House Denies It.

    Notice the initial reporting does not mention a crime?
    That came after someone who knows noticed.

    This just got bigger.
    Much bigger.

    At a bare minimum Sestak is political toast in PA (Ed Randell knows this). He is no longer credible. Clinton never was. Obama now smells like Clinton.

    In actuality - it's been months --- since February. If it was just Bill - and it was no big deal, why not release this any other Friday between then and now? I don't believe it was Clinton. I think the WH and Sestak got their story straight over the last few days and Bill said he'd be fine stepping up to being involved. I mean, what can we do to him - a former President? No the WH staff are off the hook as it wasn't directly between the WH and Sestak, and if a special prosecutor is appointed, all Sestak has to do is say "Sorry, I misunderstood" and apologize and all is forgiven. Of course, this is all speculation... but I'd like to see a SP appointed and a full and thorough investigation indentify exactly what happened and who spoke to who and what was promised or not promised.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    The difference is that the items you cite concerning Bush and Reagan are not actions takien in concert with the preferred result of an electiuon.

    BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OM!

    I think it is pretty easy to connect-the-dots.
    Stesak made it so easy even Obama could do it... and that is the problem.

    From the guy who broke the story: Larry Kane.
    The Larry Kane Report
    MAY 28,2010

    “Were you ever offered a job to get out of this race? (The contest against Arlen Specter).

    Sestak didn’t flinch .

    “Yes,” he answered.

    “Was it Navy Secretary?”, I asked

    “No comment.”

    He proceeded to talk about staying in the race but added that “he was called many times” to pull out.

    Later, I asked, “So you were offered a job by someone in the White House?”

    He said, “Yes.”


    When the taping stopped, Joe Sestak looked surprised .

    “You are the first person who ever asked me that question.”

    I prepared for the program with an outline of questions. But on that Thursday I was having a very hectic day. I was a little overwhelmed with work. I forgot to put the question in my outline. Suddenly, with 90 seconds left, I remembered!

    The news business can have moments that are so unpredictable. I knew the questionwas a good one, based on some really good sources, but I was flabbergasted when Sestak said “Yes.” There was no hesitation. No delay. He just said, “Yes.”

    As the Congressman left the building, there was an obvious dilemma. The show wouldn’t are till Sunday the 21st. The story could be big. I called Comcast executes. With their blessing, I broke the story with an audio interview on KYW Newsradio. But first there was work to do. I needed a White House response.
