    I will keep posting the following until you lefties succumb.
    Sestak is his and Obama's worst enemy in this.
    It does not matter what type of job either.
    There was a job offerred to him to leave the race.
    I believe the position offered having no salary, or worth, has an impact here.

    Whoever, directly or indirectly, promises any employment,
    position, compensation, contract, appointment, or other benefit...
    The law may not look at leaving a salaried "job" as a Congressman to take a non salaried position as a "benefit".
    Thank You Barack Obama for Restoring Honor To The Presidency.
    President Obama will rank as one of our greatest presidents!

    Zimmer, this is a list of all the things that happen during the bush years
    Bush administration scandals - SourceWatch
    LOL good try... This isn't about the Bush Administration... this is about Obama and Sestak.

    The most critical evidence to run a Grand Jury on this has already been let out of the bag.
    The man offered the job himself and his admitting the White House did the offering to get him out of the race.

    Yes, I know I was just given you a source for the scandals he had during his admiration. I just don't think Mr Obama did anything wrong.

    LOL... read Sestak's and Kane's interview, a "high level" job was offered.

    It does not matter what job was offered... the job was offered so as to get him out of the race.
    That is a violation of 18 USC 600.

    Just as it did not matter that sex with Lewinsky was embarrassing to admit under oath... the law is the law.

    They broke it.

    Now it is for the legal system to handle. The train left the station with Sestek's admission in the Kane interview. Kane knew it... Sestak didn't... until it was too late.

    stick a fork in this one. the faux outrage has been found out
    maybe it's time to turn the indignation to something about sarah having an unadoring author dare to live in the rental home next door
    ooops, that one has been put to rest also
    no doubt faux news will rustle up something else to incite its koolaid klatch
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it
    once you're over the hill you begin to pick up speed

    WH Counsel said the same thing, but I don't see how that's possibly true as applied to all possible charges. The fact that something does not come with an additional pecuniary benefit does not mean that it cannot be considered something of value.
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    Actually, it matters very much. The decision to go any further "legally" with this will very much depend on the words in the specific law pertaining to this, not emotional partisan rhetoric.

    It's value will most certainly come into play. And the only testimony that will matter will be that given under oath, not in an interview.

    This won't be going anywhere.

    Re: Sestak White House scandal called 'impeachable offense'

    Some background on Drew Zahn the WND News Editor who wrote the blog article.

    According to his website - Storycraft Communications

    He's a "author, editor, speaker, guest preacher, and home-educating father of twelve."

    In addition to the many WND articles he's written, Drew also has two books (both looking for publishers) and 1 play:


    Where Art Thou, Romeo?

    In this two-act play, written for teenage and community
    theater groups, young Hamlet has lost his dog, Romeo. With
    the help of a cast of Shakespeare characters from several of
    the Bard's plays and a tongue-in-cheek spoof on all that is
    Shakespearean, Hamlet sets out in search of Romeo. On a
    dark night, however, he is confronted by Romeo's ghost,
    who not only confirms that he was "dognapped," but also
    that he was poisoned. Through a series of famous
    Shakespearean scenes, Hamlet and his friends set out in
    search of the culprit, in what becomes a clue-ridden who-
    done-it. As the play shifts from scene to scene, two film
    critics (Siskelette and Eberta) provide running commentary
    and comic relief, helping the audience—especially those less
    versed in Shakespeare's works—recognize the parody in the
    play's scenes. "Where Art Thou, Romeo?" was accepted for
    performance by the Hearts and Homes Theater Group of
    Boone, Iowa, for performance in 2008.
    What would Jesus think of a partisan hack troll, writing angry little attack pieces for a fringe website like WND?

    And Shakespeare just upchucked in his grave...

    The Hearts and Home Theater group presents "Where art Thou, Romeo?" One Nite Only!! Well, we know twelve people who had to sit though that performance. 13 if you count his wife.

    I fail to understand why the Obama would want Spector to win.
    I thought Arlen Spector was kind of... conservative.
    Is he now Obama's bitch, or what?

    I don't know. i'm a simple, uneducated person.
    This is all beyond my ability to comprehend.
    I just want Obama to end the war, stop the oil leak, reduce unemployment, and provide some sort of medical insurance that my family can afford.
    I hope everybody doesn't get too sidetracked by this.
    We need to focus on the things that matter.
    My interpretation of this situation is that it's political business-as-usual.
    I thought this was just how things worked, in the political world.
    Of course, it's rare that we actually find out about it, but I doubt it's rare that it happens.
