Well, all I can say is it's about time they move forward with this. Of course the primary is now over. It would have been nice if they investigated this when the allegations first arose prior to the primary.(I think this story first broke back in Feb.) Either way Specter was toast but I guess it's safer to investigate now that he has lost.
Oye! They gotta save their own skin ya know.

Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) has called for the White House to release more information on the bribe, probably so Weiner can rest a little easier about his own electoral prospects. Weiner's seat is safely Democratic, but that says nothing about his personal safety in New York's Democratic primary race in September. After all, if the White House is so keen on protecting incumbents, Weiner -- with five terms under his belt and a solidly pro-Washington reputation -- is exactly the kind of legislator who could get caught up in the White House's criminal bribes.

It's true that the Republican establishment isn't much better at letting candidates organically rise to the top, but there's a big different between the NRCC's Young Guns program and the President of the United States offering a job to a potential Senator to deter him from pursuing a higher office.

SSDD from the Obama administration. Now, let's see if Holder has the stones to move forward with an investigation. He dismissed the New Black Panther intimidation case in Philly and there was video PROOF of that crime. I'm not going to hold my breath.

A little more background on this recent development of "he said, she said"

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said Sunday that Republicans are “continuing to dredge up" allegations that Rep. Joe Sestak (D) was offered a job to stay out of the Pennsylvania Senate primary.

Sestak reiterated on "Face the Nation" on Sunday that he was offered an administration post, but Gibbs said he was "not going to get further into what the conversations were” with the congressman.

"I was offered a job and I answered that," Sestak said on "Meet the Press," refusing to get into detail about what was offered. "Anything that goes beyond that is for others to talk about."

“Nothing inappropriate happened,” Gibbs said on CBS, stressing that White House lawyers had looked into the matter.
