The Washington Post claims the timing is off on the Secretary of the Navy job. That Obama had already filled this post.

This rumor may have been started by Obama’s admin after the fact to throw us off what the real job was.

It is Sestak, himself who is to blame for the SecNav talk because he refused to rule that out when the he first spoke about the job offer in February:

The disclosure came during an afternoon taping of Larry Kane: Voice of Reason, a Sunday news-analysis show on the Comcast Network. Sestak would not elaborate on the circumstances and seemed chagrined after blurting out "yes" to veteran news anchor Kane's direct question.

"Was it secretary of the Navy?" Kane asked.

"No comment," Sestak said.

"Was it [the job] high-ranking?" Kane asked. Sestak said yes, but added that he would "never leave" the Senate race for a deal.

A White House spokesman this morning strongly denied an offer had been made to Sestak. Before the spokesman issued the denial, a senior Pennsylvania Democrat said Sestak's account was met with anger by White House officials yesterday.

Also note the first official response from the White House was to lie about a job offer to Sestak.
