The controversy over allegations White House officials at least as high as Obama Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel offered two congressional candidates jobs in return for campaign favors, which apparently would violate the law, is reheating with a claim that one of the candidates colluded with the White House on what story to tell.
Judicial Watch, a government watchdog organization, has filed a congressional ethics complaint targeting Pennsylvania Rep. Joe Sestak, a Democrat who has confirmed he was offered a post.
Sestak has said publicly he was offered the job if he would agree to withdraw from a Senate primary campaign against Obama favorite Sen. Arlen Specter, another Pennsylvania Democrat.
Sestak stated he declined the offer and subsequently won the nomination. Republicans also have called for investigations into ethical issues involved in the White House offer

I wonder why old Goodluck Johnson is only the acting president.
Yeah, I’m sure Steele will get right on this [cough]
It would be the TOP news Item!!
Republicans...Where are you? I think they need a complete purge of the leadership. Muldoon and Toody are not too good.
At least he admits it....we have a poser who only wants to play President on TV
Does anyone expect the media, which lied and schemed to get their man elected in 2008, is going to publish the truth about all this?
This is why it is absolutely critical that the Republicans at a very minimum take back control of one of the two houses of Congress in November. Hopefully the Republican leadership will gets some balls and crank up the subpoena machine.
Let the hearings begin, I say!!
Rahm has been MIA, lately.
Notice Rahm has been quiet, out of site and off the air waves these days. He hears the bus warming up in the garage. He is the last line of defense before the Zero so this could get real interesting if anyone had the balls to go for it.
Who want the frikin' media to actually report the news? They are totally irrelevant specifically because they don't report the news. The last thing I want them to do is start reporting and slow the pace of their death march.
What we should REALLY shoot for is using the new media (facebook, FR, townhall.com, FOX News, etc.) to get the news out to the public.
