There needs to be a Sestak special prosecutor

Rep. Joe Sestak, the brand-new Democratic nominee for the U.S. Senate from Pennsylvania, and White House press secretary Robert Gibbs each dodged questions Sunday about Sestak's claim that the Obama administration offered him a job last summer if he would skip a primary challenge to Sen. Arlen Specter.

The issue, with implications of potential illegality by the White House, has rekindled in the five days since Sestak defeated Specter, who fled the Republican Party to seek a sixth term. GOP leaders are pressing Sestak and the administration to provide details of discussions.

There's no need for "more details".

Sestak has already given statements justifying a criminal investigation into whether a bribe was offered. Sestak is either witness to a crime or a liar.

There needs to be a Sestak special prosecutor appointed.
