Now even Democrat muckety-mucks are pressing the administration for answers.
Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner (N.Y.) called on the White House on Monday to detail conversations it allegedly had with Rep. Joe Sestak (D-Pa.) to try to convince him to drop his Senate bid.
Weiner said that allegations that White House officials had offered Sestak an administration job in exchange for his dropping of his primary bid against Sen. Arlen Specter (D-Pa.) had become a growing political liability...
“Someone has to help us out here, and I think the White House and Congressman Sestak need to make sure we’re not talking about this next week,” Weiner explained.
In response to this request, President Obama is said to have unleashed his elite Lightning Response Team™, fresh off its successful handling of the gulf oil spill, "Don't Ask, Don't Tell", the withdrawal of Armed Forces from Iraq, and the overall improvement of America's image abroad.
