Darrell Issa wants special prosecutor in Joe Sestak case

By Caleb – Western Journalism – April 22, 2010
The top Republican on the House Oversight and Government Reform committee wants the Justice department to name a special prosecutor to investigate whether the White House broke the law by allegedly offering Rep. Joe Sestak (D-Pa.) an administration job for dropping out of the Pennsylvania Senate primary.

Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) sent a letter Wednesday to Attorney General Eric Holder, urging a “formal investigation into whether a crime was committed” to extract Sestak from his primary challenge to Sen. Arlen Specter (D-Pa.).
Sestak said the White House offered him an administration post, but he has largely declined to speak further about it.
Issa has sent two letters to the White House asking about the alleged job offer, which he believes might be a crime. The Obama administration has yet to respond to either letter.
At issue, is whether the White House broke federal law that prohibits exerting the promise of influence for obtaining a federal job, interfering in elections of promising employment for political activity.
