Did Someone in Obama Administration Commit a Felony - Offer Bribe To Sestak?

So far there is no indication Holder is investigating this obvious breach of trust by someone in the Obama administration. Don't hold your breath. It is a shame he is our only recourse.

Sestak, after defeating Arlen Specter in the Democratic primary, is now receiving support from the White House. Maybe they believe that if they do not support him, he will start to name names. Judge Napolitano says there is a 5 year jail sentence at stake. Gibbs says this is "all in the past". With Holder as the AG, I guess he is probably right.

This is an excerpt from a FOX News article:
In February, Sestak accused the White House of offering him a federal job last summer to drop out of the primary after abandoning its efforts to recruit him to run when Specter switched parties. Sestak has since refused to elaborate on the allegations.

Issa has called on the Justice Department to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the matter, and last week he pushed Attorney General Eric Holder, who has refused to say whether he's looking into it, to take action. Issa says a bribe offer would amount to "multiple felonies."

"Could the reason why Congressman Joe Sestak refuses to name names is because the very people who tried to bribe him are now his benefactors?" Issa said in a written statement Wednesday. "Was Joe Sestak embellishing what really happened or does he have first-hand knowledge of the White House breaking the law? If what he said is the truth, Joe Sestak has a moral imperative to come forward and expose who within the Obama administration tried to bribe him."

The Sestak campaign, meanwhile, said it would welcome support from the White House for the November campaign.

White House spokesman Robert Gibbs has said that he's been told "whatever conversations have been had are not problematic." He also said the matter was "in the past.
