AP: White House admits job offer also made to Andrew Romanoff in Colorado senate race
[link to www.washingtonexaminer.com]

The hits just keep coming....

The Associated Press is now reporting that in addition to Rep. Joe Sestak, D-Pa., a job offer was also extended to senate candidate Andrew Romanoff on the condition he stop challenging incumbent Democratic Senator Michael Bennet, D-Colo., in the Centennial State's Democratic primary:

Administration officials dangled the possibility of a job for former Colorado House Speaker Andrew Romanoff last year in hopes he would forego a challenge to Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet.

Administration officials on Wednesday declined to specify the job that was floated or the name of the administration official who approached Romanoff, and said no formal offer was ever made. They spoke on condition of anonymity, saying they were not cleared to discuss private conversations.

The Denver Post reported last fall that "multiple sources" confirmed Deputy White House Chief of Staff Jim Messina made an offer to Romanoff. Just last week, I wrote that "White House reporters need to ask about Romanoff job offer, too," -- so good work AP. This will revelation will no doubt increase scrutiny on the White House, which is already defensive over the allegations that the Sestak job offer was illegal.

The White House confirmed Thursday that it contacted Colorado politician Andrew Romanoff to gauge his interest in an administration job last fall as Romanoff was preparing to launch a Senate bid, but also said Romanoff had sought a job with the Obama government months earlier.

The White House said Romanoff applied for a job at the U.S. Agency for International Development during the post-election transition process, and "followed up by phone with White House personnel" once the new administration was underway.

Nine months later, deputy White House chief of staff Jim Messina called and e-mailed Romanoff, according to the White House, because administration officials had heard he was entering the Democratic primary race for a Colorado Senate seat. Obama had already endorsed incumbent Sen. Michael Bennet in the Colorado race, the statement said, and "Messina wanted to determine if it was possible to avoid a costly battle between two supporters."

"But Romanoff said that he was committed to the Senate race and no longer interested in working for the Administration, and that ended the discussion," the statement by press secretary Robert Gibbs continued. "As Mr. Romanoff has stated, there was no offer of a job."

Romanoff, a former speaker of the House in Colorado, did not mention his original application to join USAID when he offered his version of the discussions late Wednesday night. Romanoff said he received a call from Messina, who as Romanoff prepared to announce that he would challenge Bennet in Colorado's Senate Democratic primary.

The difference HERE with Obama is HE'S GOTTEN

And Obama WILL be called on it, either by an Independent

(especially if Eric Holder plays his little games like he's

Instead there are howls of outrage from the conservative media.

Its the Same Game, both parties are playing it.

Oh, by the way it is now too late to vote out the Republicans and the Democrats... the primary tickets already have there republican and democrat nominees... and at the moment there are in fact no other national parties except the Republican and the Democrat.

At least in the USSR they had Five different Communist parties.

None the less, as I have been saying all year, Impeach Obama, then we can chew on Biden instead.

Yes, it is very illegal.

Obama used his POTUS political appointment ability to
influence elections.
That's illegal, even though some
Liberal hacks say, "well, everybody in politics does it."

If so, then those hacks need to cite examples from OTHER
presidents. The fact is, they can't.


The fact IS that the following law sounds like it was almost
specifically written for Obama and what he did:
