More freelancing from Ed Rendell on the Sestak job offer -- it wasn't just Bill Clinton getting involved, it was the guv and Rahm Emanuel.
Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell (D) said he and White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel discussed how to persuade Rep. Joe Sestak (Pa.) not to challenge Sen. Arlen Specter in the 2010 Democratic primary.
During an interview with Sean Hannity on Fox News Wednesday, Rendell said, "I know about this. Number one, Rahm Emanuel and I had discussions about this. We very much wanted to persuade Congressman Sestak to stay in the House and run for his seat, 'cause he would have won his seat easily and now that's a seat that's up for grabs. So I know that the administration did not want to offer him a job that would have meant he would have to leave Congress."
