What an absolute shock.
Lib antiwar Rep. Joe Sestak (D-Penn.) opened his arms to the White House today after accusing the Obama Administration of an illegal job offer last year.
FOX News reported:
Rep. Joe Sestak, the newly crowned Democratic nominee for U.S. Senate from Pennsylvania, faces a major decision: Will he embrace the White House after he accused it of trying to bribe him into dropping out of his primary race against Sen. Arlen Specter?
The Sestak campaign told FoxNews.com on Wednesday that it would gladly accept President Obama’s seal of approval. But critics were decrying the prospect of such an alliance.

“It would be incredibly disingenuous and reek of political payback” for Sestak “to accept any support from the Obama administration to become the next senator of Pennsylvania while knowingly protecting the very White House that tried to bribe him,” said Kurt Bardella, a spokesman for Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., who has been pressing for more information on the charge Sestak made during the primary campaign.
The White House did not reply to phone calls seeking comment.
