Yesterday, ABC News White House correspondent Jake Tapper had this exchange with White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs:
TAPPER: One last thing, I’m sorry. Congressman Joe Sestak last week said that the White House offered him a high-ranking job in the administration to not run against Arlen Specter. Do you guys have any comment on that?
GIBBS: I was traveling for a couple of days, as you know. I have seen some stuff that he said. But I have not looked into this, Jake.
As noted here on Monday, what Congressman Sestak reveals, and he is standing by his story, is in fact a federal crime — offering a federal job in return for a favor (Sestak’s withdrawal from the Pennsylvania U.S. Senate race, in this case).
Will Tapper get this? And that this was also done (according to the Denver Post, in the Colorado Senate race)? Will he pursue Gibbs on this? Will ABC be running any stories on this?
