Sestak has admitted on numerous occasions that the Whitehouse offered him a position to leave the primary race against Arlen Spectre. Obama had already backed Spectre in the race so Sestak needed to be moved out of the way. Sestak will not say what job was offered to him but the rumour is that he was offerd the Sec. of the Navy.
So either Sestak is lieing and his campaign will sink form this or the Obama adminstration did do this and they should be facing 3 felony accounts. Sestak need to come clean and tell what position was offered. To think he can say something was offered and then to just forget about it will not fly with the voters. Congress will be looking into this since he is a member also.
Robert Gibbs has alos been fumbling his answers on the subject making things worse.
Sestak, Gibbs Skirt Questions About Alleged Job Offer
Rep. Joe Sestak, winner of the Pennsylvania Democratic Senate primary, is refusing to provide more information on what job he was offered by a White House official to drop of that race, although he confirmed again that the incident occurred.
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 was offered a job, and I answered that," Sestak said. "Anything that goes beyond that is for others to talk about."
I want to see them sweep this one underr the rug.....
