Sestak: Clinton Chat Lasted Less Than a Minute

Friday, 28 May 2010 05:47 PM


Rep. Joe Sestak says he spoke for less than minute with former President Bill Clinton about an appointment that was meant to keep the congressman out of the Pennsylvania Senate primary.

Sestak on Friday told reporters he never considered any position the White House was willing to offer in its attempt to ease the way for Sen. Arlen Specter in the Democratic primary. The White House says it used Clinton as a go-between to try and avoid a messy primary.

Sestak says the advisory panel posts he might have had were "either intelligence or defense." He says he cut off Clinton, in whose White House he worked as a Navy officer. He says Clinton told him the offers came from White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel.
