Time For Truth Or Consequences!

Rep. Joe Sestak(D-Pa) has often stated he was offered a job by the Obama Administration if he would drop out of the Senatorial primary race in Pennsylvania running against Sen. Arlen Specter(D-Pa) Spector long time Republican, turned Democrat last year in the hope he would win the Senate seat back, fearing he couldn't beat the Republican contender. Sestak refused the job offer and won the Dem primary.
Was Sestak being offered a bribe from White House personnel?
"They tried to bribe me out of the race by offering me a job."  Repeatedly Sestak has said "I'm not lying."
If Sestak is not lying, then someone in the The Big "O" Administration is in deep shit!

Dick Morris appeared on the Sean Hannity show May 25 and had the following to say:
"Obviously, the offer of a significant job in the White House could not be made unless it was by Rahm Emanuel or cleared with Rahm Emanuel," he said. If the job offer was high enough that it also had Obama's apppoval, "that is a high crime and misdemeanor."

Hannity asked him if was an impeachable offense, Morris replied "Absolutely."

Karl Rove on Greta Van Susteran's "On the Record" show revealed the some of the laws regarding this.
"Look, that's a violation of the federal code: 18 USC 600 says that a federal official cannot promise employment, a job in the federal government, in return for a political act.

"Somebody violated the law. If Sestak is telling the truth, somebody violated the law," Rove said. "Section 18 USC 211 says you cannot accept anything of value in return for hiring somebody. Well, arguably, providing a clear path to the nomination for a fellow Democrat is something of value.

He continued, citing a third law passage: "18 USC 595, which prohibits a federal official from interfering with the nomination or election for office. ... 'If you'll get out, we'll appoint you to a federal office,' – that's a violation of the law."

Robert Gibbs, White House Press Secretary said White House Lawyers have looked into the matter and fount nothing inappropriate.

"I've said all I'm going to say on the matter. … Others need to explain whatever their role might be," Sestak said on CNN this week. "I have a personal accountability; I should have for my role in the matter, which I talked about. Beyond that, I'll let others talk about their role."

According to Politico, the Justice Department has rejected a request from Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., for a special counsel to investigate and reveal the truth of the controversy. Issa told Politico "The attorney general's refusal to take action in the face of such felonious allegations undermines any claim to transparency and integrity that this administration asserts."

Of Sestak, Issa said "Joe Sestak has a moral imperative to come forward and expose who within the Obama Administration tried to bribe him."

We should all contact our Representatives and Senators insisting on a full investigation into this. Ha, maybe this will be something Obama can't get out of. Let's put more pressure on Rep. Joe Sestak to reveal more of the incident. It is understandable Sestak doesn't want to upset his position with Democrats and the White House, especially with elections coming up in November. Morally he is obligated to expose all the details for the best interest of this country. I believe Sestak was offered a bribe from the White House, We The People want to know the truth. Who is behind this bribe? Did Obama Know About It? Someone needs to be prosecuted for their actions. ..mmm impeach Obama? That's definitely not out of the question.
Let's get to the bottom of this and let the guilty one suffer the consequences no matter who he or she is!

    = "They tried to bribe me out of the race by offering me a job." Repeatedly Sestak has said "I'm not lying."
    If Sestak is not lying, then someone in the The Big "O" Administration is in deep shit!----

    Ok, Sestak who offered you a bribe? Time to interrogate the man an find out if he is telling the truth or not and find all the information.

  2. When challanged by the left leaning Huffington Post in March 2010 for not living up to his campaign promise, Obama reaffirmed his pledge: "We will continue to work toward an unmatched level of transparency, participation and accountability across the entire administration."

    I say, "Its time to put up, or shut up." Thus far his administration's level has been unmatched in its negative accomplishment in these areas.

  3. Business As Usual! Ha! It was just announced today that former Pres Bill Clinton DID offer Representative Sestak a non-paid position on an advisory committee, if he would not run for Senator and remain in the house. Supposedly at the request of non other than Rham Emanuel! Obama's right hand. It will have to be assumed since the request came from such a high end official that Obama knew and more than likely was behind this deal.

    I believe a full Congressional Inquiry is in order. If this lame Congress doesn't do something and just takes the word of the administration on this, our country will remember all of them in November.

  4. This is one of the sleeziest administrations ever. I am sure the offer came from our #1 leader. How disgusting to use Clinton to do his dirty work. How shameful of Clinton to have even taken part in it. His Presidency wasn't exactly un-tarnished. Where do these guys get off thinking they are above the law and the constitution??

  5. At least Rep Sestak had the courage to inform us he was offered a bribe. The shame of this administration. Maybe we'll soon get a government we can be proud of.

  6. Emanuel/Clinton/Stestak attempt(s) to rig, fix, alter or guarrantee the outcome of the Pennsylvania Democratic Primary, followed by more denials and deceit. Uh-Oh!!!

    COLLUSION = a secret agreement for frauduent or illegal purpose = conspiracy.

  7. Get them all out of office as soon as we can. This sounds like impeachment procedures are in order. Make that idiot show his birth certificate. So much is being hid from this country. When is the deceit going to end??

  8. It would be nice if you could start impeachment, but they went through the back door by going through Clinton to get this done. I don't think we are going to see much difference until the elections in November. I am counting the days.

    Whoever is responsible should have to be held accountable. The FBI and a non public team should be brought in to investigate. We can't continue to allow this corruption to go on.
    As the saying goes "all the administrations have done this". So Obama and his goons get caught. Months ago when Sestak said he was approached with a job offer, an investigation should have begun then.

  10. This administration is the worst we have ever had. He isn't even trying to cover up the fact he wants to take us into socialism.
    They are trying to cover up the Sestak incident and just sweep it under the table. There is much more to this than what has been leaked to the media. And behind it all stands the so called leader of this country. How can he be trusted when he won't even show a simple birth certificate and continually claims Kenya home and his muslim ties.
    Yes, a privately endorsed investigation is called for in this situation.

  11. We will probably never know the truth about this. P Obama has a way of covering up all that he and his cronies do. I agree with what Jason said, he can't be trusted, he has proven this over and over.

  12. How ironic the job Sestak was offered is a position he can't hold if he was re-elected to the House. Sounds like the White House was trying to screw over him with false promises.
    This administration is so full of lies and deceit. Better things will be coming in November and all the thieves better watch out.

  13. I agree with the comment anonymous made the White House is trying to screw over him with false promises. I can't believe they had to go so far around to bring Bill Clinton in through the back door. If this administration is not on the way out, we are in a world of trouble.

  14. I doubt if this will ever come to anything. We all want it to but that is not where our government is. Look at the Clinton Era, do you realize a prez can perform the duties he did and just get a slap on the wrist?

    We are a nation that are followers and not doers.
    If our prez says this is the way it is and YOU can't do anything about it we just shut up and go along with him.

    WE HAVE BEEN SILENT TOO LONG! We are NOT followers, we are the the representatives of this great country. If the ones we have elected in the past do not want to listen to US, then they will leave in November and 2012. Maybe not of their choice, but of OUR CHOICE.

    This is just another thorn that we must remove! If we don't, WE LOOSE! We better not vote for the most popular or the lesser of the two evils. We need to vote for the BEST PERSON FOR THAT OFFICE.

    Nothing will come of this Sestak allegation as the government will not allow it. It is so un-constitutional! This is illegal! We can speak out but the way our government and the laws are WE can't do anything about it. This lying bunch of leaders think they are above the laws of rule. If we don't get some bipartisanship back into our government WE ARE SCREWED!
