Alternate headline: Sestak story just getting started. The news here isnt that Andrew Romanoff was offered a job to help clear the way for Michael Bennet in the Senate primary; the Denver Post reported that allllll the way back in September of last year, citing multiple sources in the state Democratic leadership. The news is that the White House denied it at the time and that unnamed administration officials are formally un-denying it now. From last September:
Jim Messina, President Barack Obamas deputy chief of staff and a storied fixer in the White House political shop, suggested a place for Romanoff might be found in the administration and offered specific suggestions, according to several sources who described the communication to The Denver Post.
Romanoff turned down the overture, which included mention of a job at USAID, the foreign aid agency, sources said
The White House said that no job was ever offered to Romanoff and that it would be wrong to suggest administration officials tried to buy him out of the contest.
Mr. Romanoff was never offered a position within the administration, said White House spokesman Adam Abrams.
That was the lie, and now comes the truth:
Administration officials dangled the possibility of a job for former Colorado House Speaker Andrew Romanoff last year in hopes he would forego a challenge to Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet, his rival in an Aug. 10 primary, administration officials said Wednesday.

Romanoff, Blagoyavitch, Systak,... just a coinkadinkie I’m sure. The left are just trying to take down their own, of course.
It should be entertaining to see the creativity the Left uses to absolve Il Douche’ Jr.
There is still one way the barking obama could save his reputation:
Find a nice stout rope and hang himself and leave a suicide note blaming it on George W. Bush.
Organized crime. That is what this administration is. There had better be a serious investigation into this...

Il Douche’ I like it!
??How about Ill Douchebag??
I was going for the South American dictator effect, but I have no problem with others coming up with something that they prefer, think is a little better. Go for it.
Sestak, Blago . . .
The NYSlimes and WA compost cleared the Kenyan of all job offer crimes last weekend. Until they crack, this scandal is not likely to get anywhere.
It’s still a lie if Abrahms thought it was the truth just that the liar would be a different person. Someone had to tell him that.
Wonder who takes the fall for this, surely not Odumbo, the messiah.
Where are Bernstein and Woodward when you need them? Oh. They only go after Republicans. Rats are never exposed.
Of course. This lends credence to the drive-by's many assertions that 'this type of thing is done all the time...', with the implicit suggestion that there's no violation of the law because it's commonplace.
As Mark Levin pointed out last week, we don't overlook other laws simply because they are frequently violated, do we?
