Is Sestak scandal 'Obama's Watergate'?Topics: Political News and commentaries
Could the Joe Sestak job offer scandal that the Obama's Justice Department has refused to investigate become Barack Obama's "Watergate"? At least one Republican Representative believes it could:
According to an e-mail from Rep. Darrell Issa's (R-Calif.) campaign Wednesday, he believes that the controversy over Rep. Joe Sestak's (D-Pa.) alleged administration job offer could be President Barack Obama's Watergate scandal.Of course there's the not-so-little problem of eventually digging out the truth from the administration that promised great transparency but so far has delivered nothing but non-transparency and secrecy - and appears to have done so to a greater extent than even the Nixon administration.
In an e-mail with the subject line "The Sestak Affair - Obama's Watergate?", the ranking member on the Oversight and Government Reform committee focused on "long-standing questions" about the offer Sestak says was made to him to urge him to drop out of the Pennsylvania Democratic Senate primary.
The campaign e-mail says the allegations would amount to three felony charges of bribery and corruption.
