  • Speaking of Felonies: The White House and the Sestak 'Bribe'

    Speaking of Felonies: The White House and the Sestak 'Bribe' While Democrats continue to accuse Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney of being a felon until proven otherwise, its useful to remember an apparent felony that was allegedly committed by Barack Obama's White House in 2009: the attempted bribe of Democrat Joe Sestak. Sestak claimed the Obama administration offered him a job if he would stay out of the primary in Pennsylvania for the U.S. Senate seat then held by Arlen Specter.

    NEPArtisan ^ | 12/17/2010 | Tom Borthwick
    From one of my sources higher up in state and national Democratic circles, the word is that Joe Sestak, who just barely lost against Pat Toomey in the US Senate race, will be challenging Bob Casey in 2012. Sestak successfully knocked off Senator Arlen Spector in a primary challenge this past year, hitting him from the left. Presumably, since Casey is often billed as a conservative Democrat (but is really more of a moderate), Sestak will be doing the same thing in 2012. He likely thinks he can do it again. Currently, Sestak is on a 67 county Thank You...

    Philadelphia Magazine ^ | 8 Nov 2010 | Chris Freind
    Hours after the polls closed, the nation still didnt know who would become Pennsylvanias junior senator, as Republican Pat Toomey and Democratic Congressman Joe Sestak were locked in a back-and-forth duel, a race too close to call. Finally victorious, Toomey thanked his supporters, of course, but he should have also thanked those most responsible for his success: Philadelphia Democrats. It was the relatively light turnout in the city that killed Sestaks candidacy. Based on the 77,000 vote statewide margin out of 3.9 million cast if just one of ten more Philadelphians voted, Sestaks election would have been a...

    Those numbers from Philadelphia did not look good at all, and a ripple of alarm went through the war room late Tuesday. More Democrats than forecast had turned out to vote in the city, so aides to Republican U.S. Senate candidate Pat Toomey reworked their spreadsheets, looking for the path to victory. At 10 p.m., Democrat Joe Sestak was holding a sizable lead in the closely watched contest - until, bit by bit, Republican areas reported in with better margins than the Toomey team could have hoped. In the end, the Republican had an unassailable lead of 77,437 votes out...

With Republicans retaining control of the state Senate and winning the state House, Pennsylvania can make the elephant its official mascot for at least the next two years. The senate race was much closer than expected and not called until after midnight when Democrat Joe Sestak conceded to Republican Pat Toomey.

Sestak swings the bag into the trash can, and equates it with the policies of his opponent. Toomeys response to this ad is more moderated at a recent campaign event in Sewickley, Pennsylvania. With that advertisement as the baseline, though, its hard to think of a response that wouldnt seem measured.

Sestak would boost outlays by just over $100 billion, while Toomey would cut them by about $2.5 billion, though both have made many campaign promises whose costs or savings are unknown.

    Pennsylvania's Democratic Senate Candidate is hoping voters have both short and long term memory problems. Former President Bill Clinton will be making an appearance today at a campaign rally for US Representative Joe Sestak (D-Pennsylvania) - the very candidate the Obama administration sent Mr. Clinton to bribe into dropping out of the primary. Mr. Sestak refused the offer of a presidential advisory position, stayed in the race and defeated Senator Arlen Specter (D-Pennsylvania) for the Democratic nomination so now the administration is sending Mr. Clinton again - this time to pretend it's the Clinton presidency that Mr. Sestak would be...
  • Dems Choosing Clinton Over Obama

    A year ago former President Bill Clinton was sent to talk US Representative Joe Sestak (D-Pennsylvania) out of challenging Senator Arlen Specter (D-Pennsylvania) in the Democratic primary. Now after refusing the offer of an unpaid advisory job in the Obama administration in exchange for dropping out of the race and defeating Senator Specter in that primary, Mr. Clinton will appear at a Sestak rally next week. But there's more to this story than the hypocritical endorsement by Mr. Clinton of a candidate who, at the request of the Obama administration, he tried to bribe away from running at all. There's...

    Does it matter if a candidate for the US Senate served as a keynote speaker for an extremist group? Does it matter if he hired one of the group's staff to serve on his staff? These are some of the questions being asked about Rep. Joe Sestak as voters learn about his ties to the Council on American-Islamic Relations. ................................................. ...Sestak hired CAIR's director of communications in Philadelphia, Adeeba Al-Zalman, to work in his new Washington office in 2007. Soon thereafter, Al-Zalman had arranged for Sestak to speak at CAIR's Philadelphia dinner that year. ................................................. Joe Sestak's relationship with this...

    A new poll shows the Pennsylvania Senate race going from the toss-up column to the leans-Republican category. Republican Pat Toomey now leads Democrat Joe Sestak by a 7 point margin (45% - 38%) and that's only part of the story. Virtually every indicator in the poll shows this perennial swing state is swinging right.

    The numbers remain little changed this month in Pennsylvanias race for the U.S. Senate, with Republican Pat Toomey continuing to maintain a slight lead over Democrat Joe Sestak. The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in the state shows Toomey with 45% support, while Sestak earns 38% of the vote. Six percent (6%) prefer some other candidate in the race, and 12% are undecided. Last month, Toomey held a near-identical 45% to 39% lead. In fact, except for a brief surge after his mid-May victory over incumbent Arlen Specter in the states Democratic Senate Primary, support for Sestak...
