    I don't think he has to be holding office.

    If he was going to make a run for a seat, and was offered a position in the government not to run, that would signal a breach of the law.

    It was obnoxious with Lewinski and Clinton. It was obnoxious with Libby and Bush/Clinton. It will be obnoxious here and likely a similar effect.

    Let authorities look into it, determine if there's wrong doing, and deal with it, and stop politicizing the **** out of this stuff...both sides.
    Good Old Z, making sure no one can mistake him for a Conservative.


    Sestak and another politician, guy from Colo. if memory serves have both claimed that they were offered Cush Jobs not to run.

    Neither of them have been willing to name names publicly though. So either two men are liars OR both are being honest. There is nothing wrong with demanding answers to such abuses of power.
    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.

    Please Mr. V, enlighten me as to what "isn't conservative" about my position? Specifics if you would.

    I want it investigated, if there's sufficient evidence to suggest a crime I want it pursued, and if the persons found guilty I want them punished. I'm going to wager that you're not saying wanting the justice system to function isn't conservative.

    Oh, I know, perhaps in your twisted hyper partisan view of what "conservative" is if one does not want to take any and every opportunity to run your "enemies" through the mud at the potential expense of the countries money and the integrity of the country and the office of the President all in the name of political points that it doesn't make one "conservative".

    Oh, oh, I know...maybe its the notion that you know, just because someone has a (D) or an (R) next to their name doesn't mean you should react differently to the base principle of it...that must be what you strangely think wasn't "conservative" of me. That I thought the witch hunt and perjury traps set for scooter Libby were ridiculous, as was the non-stop constant attention to the entire relatively small issue by the media during the months and months when we didn't have all the facts and thus was just pointless speculation for political purposes, and that I'd have the audacity to think two wrongs don't make a right and that this particular issue should be handled the way I would've preferred the Plame issued to be handled.

    That must be it, how strangely non-conservative of me, actually sticking to principles despite whether or not doing so will benefit "my side" and not wanting to take a law enforcement situation far from complete and make wild assumptions all in the name of dragging down the POTUS because he's a (D), regardless of whether or not anything I'm saying turns out to be true.

    Yep, you got me, fake conservative I guess. At least in hyper partisan bizarro land.

    You'll never get it because it will be one word vs another and that is all the excuse Liberals will need not to convict if its true.

    I don't know if this will amount to anything. Blagojevich was a disgrace to corrupt politicians everywhere. Most of them are smart enough to make their actions appear perfectly legitimate.

    One word vs. another never holds up in court if there isn't any evidence.

    The longer this lingers, and if they believe they can wait this out with their propagandists playing dumb, the worse it is going to get.

    The Admiral is on record multiple times stating the scenario.

    We need to know who did what, who knew what, and when they knew the whats.

    I expect Obama will be forthcoming immediately. He said he will run the most ethical administration ever.

    We will see how Obama justifies stopping this


    Exclusive: All 7 Republicans on Senate Judiciary Committee Ask AG Holder to Appoint Special Prosecutor to Look Into Alleged Sestak Job Offer - Political Punch




    In a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder today, all seven Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee "urge the appointment of a special prosecutor to investigate Congressman Joe Sestak's claim that a White House official offered him a job to induce him to exit the Pennsylvania Senate primary race against Senator Arlen Specter."

    The seven – Sens. Jeff Sessions of Alabama, Orrin Hatch of Utah, Chuck Grassley of Iowa, Jon Kyl or Arizona, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, John Cornyn of Texas and Tom Coburn of Oklahoma – allege that the offer would appear to violate federal criminal laws, including 18 U.S.C. 600, which prohibits promising a government position “as consideration, favor, or reward for any political activity” or “in connection with any primary election or political convention or caucus held to select candidates for any political office.

    And yet again we are embarassed by a liberal administration in the eyes of the world. Making unpopular decisions is one thing but the corruption is inexcusable.
