Sestakgate: Who Knew What, When?
Once again, The White House is coming under fire, this time for allegedly offering Congressman Joe Sestak of Pennsylvania a high ranking government job if he would abandon his campaign against U.S. Senator Arlen Specter. Sean kicked off Wednesday’s story with the latest. “They tried to bribe him [Sestak] into violating the law,” argued Hannity, “if Sestak is telling the truth.” Congressman Sestak told reporters recently he was offered “a federal job to get out of this race but that he would never get out for a deal.” Now, Sestak won’t tell who offered him the position or what the position was. Sestak has an obligation to the American people to come clean with the truth in this situation. For that matter, so does the President. For the latest on this story, visit FoxNews.
Jay Sekulow and Victoria Toensing
Jay Sekulow, the Chief Counsel for the American Center for Law and Justice and attorney Victoria Toensing joined Sean to discuss the Sestak scandal. “Are we going to get to the point where we know What the President knew and when did he know it,” asked Sean seemingly drawing the connection between this scandal and the now-famous Watergate question. Sekulow quickly offered, “What Sestak said are allegations of a crime,” argued Sestak, “so it’s not like someone on the right is taking a statement and trying to turn it into something.” Toensing continued the debate saying, “There are quid-pro-quos all the time but when Congress looks at a specific act and says this shouldn’t be sends the message that federal jobs shouldn’t be for sale.” That’s certainly an understatement. It’s clear that someone is not telling the truth in this situation and, to date; Congressman Sestak has given no reason not to believe his story.

Governor Sarah Palin: Fences in Alaska?
Governor Palin made an announcement yesterday that author Joe McGinniss recently moved next door to the former Governor in order to do research for his next book, “A Year In The Life of Sarah Palin.” “It’s everybody’s dream to get a house,” argued Sean, “and we don’t expect neighbors listening in or reporting on every detail of our lives.” Governor Palin responded, “You don’t expect an erosion of your personal privacy and this makes me more adamant than ever to fight for personal freedoms.” Hannity summed it up saying, “Legally he’s able to do it but we’re talking about human decency.” This is certainly a blurring of the journalistic ethics line and really creates a bad reputation for McGinniss. Perhaps Governor Palin should look into building fences in Alaska also? For the latest on this story, visit the Washington Post.
