Rep. Joe Sestak, D-Pa., said Sunday the White House had offered him a job if he would withdraw from the primary race against Sen. Arlen Specter.Whether the job offer was Secretary of State or DC dog catcher it's a crime, a very serious crime. If this isn't pursued vigorously it we be an monumental travesty. How high this goes nobody knows but someone needs to go to prison.
Sestak, who defeated the five-term incumbent Specter to win the Democratic nomination in the Senate primary, was asked on CBS's "Face the Nation" if the Obama administration had offered a position in exchange for his agreeing not to run.
"Yeah, he replied. "I was asked that question months after it happened. And I felt an obligation to answer it honestly. I said, 'yes.'
Asked what job, Sestak said: "No, no … and I said at the time, anything beyond that just gets into politics."
