    GOP Lawmaker Darrell Issa Poised to Call for Special Prosecutor to Investigate White

    Rep. Darrell Issa, the top Republican on the House Oversight committee, told CBS News Wednesday that he will call for a special prosecutor to investigate the White House if it does not address Rep. Joe Sestak's claim that he was offered a federal job in exchange for dropping out of the Pennsylvania Senate primary.

    "If the public doesn't receive a satisfactory answer, the next step would be to call for a special prosecutor, which is well within the statute," Issa (pictured) told Hotsheet.

    The California Republican has been pushing for the White House to provide details of conversations between Sestak and administration officials in the wake of Sestak's comment during a radio interview last month that he was offered a high-ranking administration job in exchange for dropping his primary challenge against Sen. Arlen Specter.

    Asked if that job was secretary of the Navy, Sestak declined to comment. His press secretary told CBS News that the lawmaker stands by his original statement that he was offered the job in exchange for an administration post. Sestak did not drop out of the race.
    Is this the first big Obama-gate? Is this just the GOP attacking because they lack the votes to make any impact?

    In the letter, Issa said that Gibbs' comments that he is "collecting direct evidence from witnesses" implies "that the White House is allowing its communications staff to carry out investigative tasks ordinarily conducted by legal professionals in the Counsel's office. Such slipshodness has all the makings of a cover up."

    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Issa's an idiot. He was the guy who financed the recall of the DINO Gray Davis expecting that he could run and win the election. When a couple dozen other high profile people ran and he drew less than 10% of the vote he was actually crying during a TV interview.

    He keeps tryng to run for higher office in California and gets beaten everytime.

    He has ZERO credibility in this state outside his limited ultra conservative district.

    That's great, so does that mean the source of the claim is also a liar... he's also the 2nd person to make the same basic claim. I.E. don't run and we'll give you a job.

    Or does that whole violation of federal law not bother you at all?
