Congressman Daryl Issa Accuses Obama White House with Bribery in Specter Race

More serious problems and charges of illegality in the Obama White House, as they are accused of bribing a potential opponent of former republican congressman in name only Benedict Arlen Specter to stay out of the race with a White House staff position.

This administration won't make it past the November elections it's starting to look like now more and more each day. This charge has been floating around for about a month now as you can see from the additional links at the posts' conclusion.

POLITICO.com: "The top Republican on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee says the Obama administration may have broken the law by offering Rep. Joe Sestak (D-Pa.) a job in order to persuade him not to mount a primary challenge against Sen. Arlen Specter.

Sestak has said that the administration offered him a high-ranking government job if he’d stay out of the race. White House press secretary Robert Gibbs has been asked repeatedly about the accusation in recent weeks but so far has neither confirmed nor denied that a job was offered.

But in a letter to White House general counsel Robert Bauer Wednesday, Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) said that, if Sestak’s allegation is true, administration officials may have violated a federal statute which makes it a crime for a government employee to use his authority “for the purpose of interfering with, or affecting, the nomination or the election of any candidate” for certain offices, including Senate seats.

'While the White House may think this is politics as usual, what is spectacularly unusual is when a candidate — a U.S. congressman no less — freely acknowledges such a proposal,” Issa wrote. “Almost always candidates keep quiet about such deals, and for good reason — they are against the law.'

Issa listed a series of questions he wants answered by March 18:"  Read more:
