House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Ranking Member Darrell Issa, who has been pressing this issue for months, called for a special prosecutor in April. He alleges that the White House may have violated anti-bribery provisions of the federal criminal code as well as prohibitions on government officials interfering in elections and using federal jobs for a political purpose if it made the offer.
Sestak has stood by his claim, made in an offhand fashion in February, that he was offered the job — though he has refused to discuss it further. The White House has largely brushed off questions about the alleged offer, ultimately stating that the conversations were “not problematic” and that “nothing inappropriate” took place. White House senior adviser David Axelrod said that White House lawyers found any interaction to have been “perfectly appropriate.”

The Obama Administration has focused on passing bills and legislation and meeting the country’s needs – despite near lockstep opposition to every single proposal by Republicans in an attempt to make the Obama Administration, and by consequence America…
