The White House plans to officially answer the lingering question of whether a member of President Barack Obama’s staff tried to get Rep. Joe Sestak (D-Pa.) out of the Senate Democratic primary in Pennsylvania by offering him a job in the administration.
Obama said Thursday that he would soon issue “an official response” to the accusation Sestak made months ago during the primary challenge against Sen. Arlen Specter (D-Pa.), whom the White House had strongly endorsed. Sestak has continued to stand behind his claim since beating Specter in the election a few weeks ago, and pressure has mounted on the White House to disclose what happened. More at Politico.
