GOP Senators Demand Sestak Probe

Congratulations, President Obama: You have your first "gate" scandal on your hands. In the latest move in what conservatives are calling "Sestakgate," the seven Republican members of the Senate Judiciary Committee asked Attorney General Eric Holder to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate whether the White House broke the law by allegedly offering Sestak a job in exchange to not challenge Senator Arlen Specter in the Pennsylvania primary. The senators charge that if the White House did offer Sestak a job, it is a felony in violation of federal criminal laws. White House adviser David Axelrod said the in-house attorneys had investigated the matter and found no evidence of wrongdoing.
