A thought about why one with ambition might choose to drop out
by Larry Geller
Ed Case’s sudden withdrawal from the 1st Congressional race has led to many questions, Why? Here’s a thought.
In a major political scandal orchestrated by the Obama Administration, a popular Democratic congressman from Pennsylvania has revealed that the White House tried bribing him to drop out of the upcoming U.S. Senate race.
Congressman Joe Sestak said in a television news show that the White House offered him a top federal job in an effort to keep him from challenging Senator Arlen Specter in the state’s Democratic primary. [judicialwatch.org, Obama Tried Bribing Arlen Specter’s Opponent, 2/19/2010]
Who knows. If Case gets appointed to something in DC, remember, you saw it first right here. Now, if he doesn’t, just forget you saw this at all.
My thinking exactly...there must have been a bargain to motivate someone as ambitious as Case to drop out. But what? What job does he want more than Congress?
Who knows... both senators are getting along in years, perhaps if there were a vacancy he would go for that.
