A quick Sestak thought
I’m sure I’m neither the first nor the last to wonder about this, but just what is US Senate candidate from Pennsylvania, Joe Sestak, going to do about his prior accusation that he was offered a job by the White House if he would get out of the race (at the time, the race to challenge Arlen Specter in the Democrat primary)?
If the claim was false, then Sestak is a liar and unfit to serve in the Senate.
If the claim is true, then Sestak can either explain the details or refuse to speak about it.
If he refuses to speak about it, he is aiding and abetting a federal crime and is unfit to serve in the Senate. Can you imagine just what other lapses Sestak will be capable of if he were to be in the Senate. We’d sure have to hope that he’s not on the Senate Ethics Committee, at least if a Democrat were to be the subject of an investigation.
If he comes clean about what happened, and assuming his original statement was true, it’s hard to imagine that the revelations wouldn’t damage the Obama White House which is not only bad for his political future if he does win but would also damage Democrat voter enthusiasm for Sestak in November.
Sestak is in a no-win situation, but there is only one ethical, honest path for him to take.
I’ll bet $10 that he doesn’t take it. He’ll hope that it just goes away, and that Democrats are so used to lying and cheating at an even larger scale within their party that this will seem like chump change, easily overlooked. And of course, he might be right…which explains quite well why we have the Senate we have. If Sestak beats former Congressman and head of the Club for Growth, Pat Toomey, it will just go to prove that people get the government they deserve.
