Editor’s Note – Another Democrat comes out and acknowledges that the White House offered several positions to him if he drops his primary challenge. 

This is a clear violation of  law, and further justifies an full scale investigation by an independent prosecutor.

Were it a Republican administration, the process would have already begun, with the media leading the charge in vilifying the President. 


Andrew Romanoff: W.H. Offered Three Jobs

Michael Bennet, who had the support of the White House.

Romanoff said he informed the White House that he would stay in the race. The revelation comes days after the White House confirmed that Rep.

But in this case, Romanoff was offered paid positions in the administration, a clear difference from the Sestak case.
