Obama Administration Reportedly "Pays Off" Democratic Contenders with Aministration Jobs

 It is being reported that White House offered jobs to two contenders running against Democratic Senators in the 2010 elections if they would leave their respective races. Joe Sestak, running against Arlen Specter in Pennsylvania, claims white House officials offered him the position of Secretary of the Navy in exchange for dropping out of the race. In Colorado, state house speaker Andrew Romanoff was reportedly offered a job by White House staffers if he abandoned a challenge to the Michael Bennet, appointed to the Senate to replace Secretary of Agriculture Ken Salazar.

According to Jeffrey Lord of The Spectator:
The discovery that the White House has now been reported on two separate occasions in two different states to be deliberately committing a potential violation of federal law -- in order to preserve the Democrats' Senate majority -- could prove explosive in this highly political year. The 60-seat majority slipped to 59 seats with the death of Senator Edward Kennedy, a Democrat, and the election of Republican Senator Scott Brown. Many political analysts are suggesting Democrats could lose enough seats to lose their majority altogether.

Communism has never come to power in a country that was not disrupted by war or corruption, or both.
