The Sestak Bribe Allegation may be Nearing Critical Mass

Congressman Joe Sestak, who is running against Arlen Specter in Pennsylvania, is causing a furor with his accusation that someone in the Obama Administration offered him a Federal job to drop out of that state’s Democratic Senate Primary.

Last month, Sestak was interviewed on Philadelphia radio by Larry Kane, and said:

Kane: “Were you ever offered a federal job to get out of this race?

Sestak: “Yes.”

Kane:  “Was it Navy Secretary?”

Sestak:  “No comment.”

The White House has only fueled the fires of speculation by stonewalling any efforts to get answers about the legitimacy of this claim, and who may have made such an offer. White House spokesman Robert Gibbs refused to answer the question for the fifth time on Friday.

If Sestak’s claim is true, then as Senator Specter says in the video above it constitutes a “bribe punishable by jail”, a thought echoed by Representative Darrell Issa who said on Friday that any such job offer was “a crime”.

With no answers forthcoming from the White House, the allegations may be nearing a critical mass that could portend a criminal investigation.
