Issa Nixes Probe of White House Job Offer to Sestak

Several weeks ago, it looked like the White House might be in big trouble, after Democratic Pennsylvania Senate candidate Joe Sestak said the Obama administration dangled a job offer in front of him to refrain from opposing incumbent Sen. Arlen Specter in the primary. Sestak Darrell, Issa, Joe, Sestak, Arlen, Specter, job, offerdeclined and beat Specter before losing to Republican Pat Toomey last week. Rep. Darrell Issa [pictured], who will likely head the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee next year, had said he was prepared to investigate what might be an “impeachable” offense. But now Issa is backing off, Roll Call reports.

Issa spokesman Kurt Bardella tells the publication that investigating the Sestak affair wouldn’t be wise, because it could be construed as “a partisan witch hunt.” He says the committee has “no intention” of issuing subpoenas to former President Bill Clinton, who allegedly served as a go-between for the White House, Sestak, or anyone else involved.
