White House: Sestak offered Unpaid Advisory Position

From the Washington Post:
At the urging of the Obama White House, former President Bill Clinton asked Rep. Joe Sestak if he would abandon his plans to challenge Sen. Arlen Specter in a Pennsylvania Democratic primary in exchange for an unpaid, advisory position, according to a White House counsel report issued Friday morning.

The rest of the story can be read here.

Sestak has yet to respond to this version of events. But if this is what happened it was Sestak who misled the country for months.

When he was asked if he was offered a job to get out of the primary he said "Yes." A job is not an unpaid advisory position. When he was asked if it was a big job, he smiled and nodded and then declined to elaborate, leaving the clear impression that he was offered a job, a big job, something of value, but he turned down the offer.

For months he's been saying he was asked a question and he "answered it honestly." No, he didn't. Not if what the White House now says is true.

We're waiting for Sestak to make a statement... with baited breath.
