Darrell Issa will likely call for a special investigation into the White House/Joe Sestak scandal

April 7, 2010

  Representative Darrell Issa had set a deadline of March 18th for the White House to respond to a letter regarding the issue of Joe Sestak’s allegation that the White House tampered in the Pennsylvania primary by offering Joe Sestak a high ranking position in the administration in return for his promise not to run against Arlen Specter. If the White House did not meet his deadline, Darrell Issa was prepared to call for a special investigation into the accusations.

  The March 18th deadline was missed but the deadline was extended and still the White House has not provided Darrell Issa with the answers to the questions that he has asked for. Darrell Issa is now stating that he will give the White house one more week to respond and if they don’t he will call for a special investigation into the matter.

  If the allegations are true than a federal crime has been committed and the American people need and deserve to know the truth about this issue one way or the other. I believe that Joe Sestak is telling the truth, but I also was of the belief that he had no proof of these allegations, after all nobody in the White House would be stupid enough to leave a paper trail on something like this. I believe that this type of deal– while wrong– is made all of the time by both parties. Joe Sestak just happens to be the first person to go public with such claims.

  Arlen Specter said that in light of the accusations of a federal crime, Joe Sestak should provide the congress with the names of the people who committed said crimes. I agree with Arlen Specter. Joe Sestak’s response? There was none, he stopped making the accusations. Joe Sestak’s sudden silence when challenged by Arlen Specter is what led me to believe that he had opened his mouth without thinking, and that although he may have been telling the truth, he could not prove it.

  But then Darrell Issa’s deadline comes and goes and there is no response from the White House and I am wondering why. If the White House had nothing to hide than why wouldn’t they provide Darrell Issa with the answers to his questions? Why drag out this issue if they could end it once and for all?

  Either Joe Sestak is lying, or the White House is lying. Those are the only two options. I want to get to the bottom of this issue and I think that the American people deserve to know who is lying to them. If that means that Darrell Issa needs to call for a special investigation than I am all for it.

  Someone is not telling the truth, the question is who?

    How dare you accuse the White House of lying. Why, the Obama Regime is the most transparent administration in history! Why, we have so much to thank Dictator Zero for, higher taxes, higher energy costs, lower standard of health care, 17-minute answers to questions, bad first pitches.

    You should be ashamed of yourself.

    BTW … I’m taking action that sooner or later Zero makes Issa an offer he can’t refuse.

      I apologize, I lost my way there for a little while. I will try to do better in the future.

    I’m with Snarky on this one. The myth of the transparent government must be maintained, so Issa will be ignored. The MSM will ignore it too.
