    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, it’s 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.
  • Rumor: Sestak to Challenge Casey in Dem Primary

    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”...

    Hours after the polls closed, the nation still didn’t know who would become Pennsylvania’s 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 Sestak’s candidacy. Based on the 77,000 vote statewide margin — out of 3.9 million cast — if just one of ten more Philadelphians voted, Sestak’s election would have been a...

    The PowerPoint slides presented to House Republicans in January 2009 seemed incongruously optimistic at a time when the very word “hope” belonged to the newly ascendant Democrats and their incoming president, Barack Obama. “If the goal of the majority is to govern, what is the purpose of the minority?” one slide... --snip-- He said his team was thrilled when Mr. Sestak raised a public objection, arguing that, in fact, he voted with Ms. Pelosi 97 percent of the time.

    The new leaders in the U.S. house may open official investigations into the New Black Panthers case and President Obama’s job offer to Joe Sestak. On the day after the GOP took control of the House, two Republican leaders openly critical of Obama will have subpoena power as the heads of two powerful House committees. Lamar Smith of Texas will oversee the House judiciary committee and Darrel Issa of California will chair the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. Both men have been critical of the Justice Department’s handling of the New Black Panthers voter intimidation case in Philadelphia, and...

    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...

    Republican Tom Corbett handily won the governorship last night beating Democrat Dan Onorato. The unofficial tally with 53 districts -- 40 in Philadelphia and 13 in Delaware County -- to go was 2,136,683 votes to 1,783,581. 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. The unofficial tally as of midnight was 1,993,704 votes for Toomey to 1,916,284...

    I've been sitting here clicking "refresh" to get a tally of my home state Senate race. With 95.6% of the precints reporting, Toomey had about 1.835 million and Sestak had about 1.803. Next thing I know, it's 96% of the precincts reporting, and Sestak has 1.721 million. How does that happen (not that I'm unhappy about it, I should stress, I'm just wondering).

    Pennsylvania Democratic Senate candidate Joe Sestak defends signing letter pushed by J Street calling for easing Gaza blockade. LOWER MERION TOWNSHIP – One day, months before the race to represent Pennsylvania in the US Senate entered the homestretch, Democratic candidate Joe Sestak arrived at his campaign office to find it practically empty. “Where is everybody?” Sestak told The Jerusalem Post he had asked at the time, only to be told it was Pessah. That’s how he found out that nearly half his staff was Jewish. But on Monday, the day before Americans finally head to the polls, Sestak’s headquarters in...

    The outcome in a handful of Senate races could alter the political direction of the country, and abortion is a pivotal issue. America's newest cardinal is urging Catholic voters to take their faith seriously and select only candidates committed to protecting innocent life. Last week, Pope Benedict XVI announced the elevation of Washington Archbishop Donald W. Wuerl and former St. Louis Archbishop Raymond L. Burke to the College of Cardinals. Thomas McKenna, president of Catholic Action for Faith and Family, interviewed Archbishop Burke in Rome just hours after the announcement. As prefect of the Supreme Court of the Apostolic Signature,...

    In his final push against Republican Pat Toomey in the Pennsylvania Senate race, an advertisement from Democratic Rep. Joe Sestak features a bag of feces collected from his family dog. Sestak swings the bag into the trash can, and equates it with the policies of his opponent. Toomey’s response to this ad is more moderated at a recent campaign event in Sewickley, Pennsylvania. With that advertisement as the baseline, though, it’s hard to think of a response that wouldn’t seem measured. “The DCC is spending more money attacking me with lies and dishonest ads than they have in any other...

  • Over $100 Billion Separates Federal Budget Agendas of Pennsylvania Senate Candidates.(Wow!)

    (Alexandria, VA) – As Pennsylvania Senate candidates Pat Toomey and Joe Sestak try to define their differences to voters, at least one difference can be measured in dollars and cents: according to a line-by-line analysis from the non-partisan National Taxpayers Union Foundation (NTUF), many tax dollars separate the federal budget platforms of the two hopefuls. 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.

    Allentown – As expected, Congressman Sestak lobbed one dishonest attack after another in order to try to run away from his extreme record of voting for every single bailout, record-breaking debt, hundreds of billions of dollars in new tax increases, a cap-and-trade energy tax, and government-run health care. But the truth is catching up with him. FALSEHOOD: Pat Toomey voted for the largest deficits in history. TRUTH: Actually, Joe Sestak voted for the largest deficits in U.S. history. Over his four years in Congress, Joe Sestak voted for $3.3 trillion in new deficit spending. In contrast the cumulative budget deficit...
