Sestak Says Brother Spoke to W.H. on Allegations

Thursday, 27 May 2010 11:47 PM

Rep. Joe Sestak, D-Pa., already under fire for allegations he was offered a job by the Obama administration to drop his successful primary Senate bid, said Thursday that his brother has spoken with White House officials about the controversy.

Sestak ran in, and won his primary bid, defeating the White House's preferred candidate, Sen. Arlen Specter.

He told reporters Thursday that he would not expand upon his prior statements until the White House releases its report on the matter. President Obama said in his news conference that such a report would come "shortly."

Richard Sestak, the congressman's brother, who has served as his top political adviser and campaign lawyer, spoke with administration officials Wednesday, Joe Sestak said.

"They got a hold of my brother on his cell phone, and he spoke to the White House . . . about what's going to occur," said Sestak, who said he expects the White House will release its information Friday. He declined to elaborate on his discussions with Richard.
