Jobs I Don't Envy: Whatever Joe Sestak Got Offered at the White House
Seriously, this guy's life sucks right about now. He lost a sweet cushy gig at the White House and now he can't even pour out his heart and soul to get it off his back. The White House will have to get back to you on that.
Rep. Joe Sestak (D-Pa.) said Thursday his brother has spoken with White House officials about the congressman's allegation that he was offered an Obama administration job if he would stay out of a Democratic Senate primary.
Sestak ran in, and won, that primary, defeating the White House's preferred candidate, Sen. Arlen Specter.
He told reporters Thursday that he would not expand upon his prior statements until the White House releases its report on the matter. President Obama said in his news conference such a report would come "shortly."
Richard Sestak, who has served as his brother's top political adviser and campaign lawyer, spoke with administration officials Wednesday, Joe Sestak said.
"They got ahold of my brother on his cellphone, and he spoke to the White House . . . about what's going to occur," said Sestak, who said he expects the White House will release its information Friday. He declined to elaborate on his discussions with his brother.
OK it's not completely suspicious that the White House needs a couple days to put together a statement. Way to bumble that one, WH press team. Listen, we know you have a lot on your plate but seriously...
