On cue, the state GOP issued a statement today on Bill Clinton and the White House job offer to Joe Sestak, with with a twist, tying the offer to criticism of the WH handling of the economy. It's from lead spokesman Michael Barley:
“It looks like Bill Clinton is still trying to help Joe Sestak land a job,” Barley said. “It’s not surprising that Bill Clinton and Joe Sestak would be campaigning together – both support government-run health care, both have a track record or supporting extreme liberal policies that will raise taxes and kill jobs, and both are needlessly evasive when pressed for answers about their questionable actions regarding the ‘job-gate’ scandal.
“The fact of the matter is that high-ranking Democrats have spent more time trying to land Joe Sestak a job than talking about ways to help get Pennsylvanians back to work. While Pat Toomey continues to share his message of fiscal responsibility and economic growth with voters throughout the Commonwealth, Joe Sestak has adamantly refused to ‘spill the beans’ about the specific details surrounding the series of events and the job he was offered by Bill Clinton and the White House.
“I would hope that both Clinton and Sestak are pressed further to clear up lingering ‘job-gate’ questions. Pennsylvanians deserve to have these important questions answered.”
