Was Sestak Offered Job Not to Run … Did Joe Sestak Lie or Did Barack Obama White House Commit a Federal Crime?
So Democrats, where is the special prosecutor to investigate the possible federal crime? Some one has to be lying. Did the White House try and bribe Joe Sestak or is he a grandstanding liar?
This weekend on Meet the Press, Pennsylvania Democrat US Senate primary winner Joe Sestak confirmed that the Obama White House tried to bribe him with a federal job for him to quit the race against Republican turned Democrat Arlen Specter. However Sestak is refusing to say more regarding the job now that he won the Democrat primary and is a political insider even though he ran as a so-called outsider.

The White House has denied such allegations that Sestak was offered a position.
So who is lying America? Is it the Democrat candidate looking to become the next US Senator from Pennsylvania or is it the President of the United States? If the WH did try and offer Sestak a job to get him out of the race so that Specter could win, it would account for strike one and two. As fate would have it Sestak stayed in the race and won against the Obama backed candidate Arlen Specter.
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.”
So when can we expect the investigation into Obama’s White House?
