    A California congressman who called it an "impeachable" offense for the administration to offer Rep. Joe Sestak a job in exchange for his quitting a Senate bid said Sunday the cover-up, as usual, appears worse than the crime.

    Republican Rep. Darrell Issa said the explanation for the Sestak affair -- that former President Bill Clinton offered the Democratic congressman an unpaid position on an advisory board if he would drop his challenge against party-switching Pennsylvania Sen. Arlen Specter -- is not plausible because as a sitting congressman Sestak couldn't have served on a presidential commission.

    "It's a crime because they've admitted that they offered this position ... So that begs the real question. Do we believe this is a further cover-up because he's -- they're now talking about a job that President Clinton himself should have known Sestak couldn't take? " he said.

    So the Whitehouse originally denied any offer was given to Sestak

    Now that they have admitted and it is now apparent they lied before they continue their lies by insisting that Sestak was offered a non paying board position and are now backing away from that.

    The real problem here is that too many people have been conditioned to accept Obama's lies and excuses.

    Too few expect anything else. Unfortunately there will be no outcry or real fallout over this. It's what people expect.

    Bush would have been crucified over a story like this.

    To influence the outcome of an election by offering them something valuable. But there is a reasonable question as to the type of job that was offered as a sitting congressman cannot sit on an advisory board. Knowing that Clinton, who knows this as he was the one who signed this into law, knows this it is in very good doubt that this so called job was unpaid.

    You need to keep up with the news.

    That pathetic version has been withdrawn.

    The White House is trying to come up with a more believable story.

    These types of deals are not unique to the current administration. It has been done forever. That doesn't bother me. What does bother me is that I voted for change, not for BAU.
