What job did the White House offer Democratic Rep. Joe Sestak if he skipped the Pennsylvania Senate primary and who made the offer?

Sestak isn't saying — and the White House only says "nothing inappropriate" took place, according to the Associated Press.

Sestak won his party's Senate nomination last week. His opponent was longtime Sen. Arlen Specter, who ditched the GOP last year and became a Democrat.

Sestak says the White House offered him a job — he's not saying what it was — if he would leave Specter alone.

White House spokesman Robert Gibbs isn't saying if Sestak was offered a job, but he does say White House lawyers and others have looked into the matter.

Story continues below video.



"I'm not a lawyer. But lawyers in the White House and others have looked into conversations that were had with Congressman Sestak. And nothing inappropriate happened," Gibbs told CBS' "Face the Nation."

"I'm not going to get further into what the conversations were. People that have looked into them assure me that they weren't inappropriate in any way," he said.
