"Counsel" is the Magic Word

Late Breaking Bulletin: Congressmen Darrel Issa and Lamar Smith have set a June 9 deadline for the White House to supply them with a slew of documents relating to COS Rahm Emanuel and former POTUS Bill Clinton offerring Rep. Joe Sestrak a job to quit his race for the senate. They implicate Sesrtak's brother, Richard, and accuse the White House of "tampering of evidence, witness tampering and evasion of the legal process” for dispatching Clinton to offer Sestak a spot on a presidential intelligence advisory board. " according to a pro-democrat blogger at:

Just get a load of Robert Gibbs (definitely NOT "glibs" ) , responding to
(I could NOT use the word "andwering" ) reporters' questions as to why it took the White House soooo long to explain the job offer to Joe Sestak if he would not run for the senate.

As one of my favorite web sites, says, when a White House mouthpiece says "counsel", one must just shudder and duck.

As you will note in this video clip,,
that word is always accompanied by cold flopsweat from the mouthpiece (in this case, Gibbs).

If the I.H.T.M. wesite had not registered SESTAKGATE as a trademark, I would use it feely here. It will doubtless go into the public domain when the "other party" has control of the national legislature next year.

Meanwile, remember ! The corruption trial of disgraced former Democratic Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich begins Thursday, June 4. One of his "defenses", according to court documents is that fellow ChicagoWay votaries Barrack Obama and Rahm Emanuel tried to "make" him name another special "ChicagoWay" person to Obama's senate seat.

Blago, the Chicago Sun Times quotes court papers saying, complained that they did not even offer him anything.

Get out the popcorn.

"Has This Law EVER Been Enforced ????"

Those are the words reportedly uttered defensively, squirmingly, by either a suckup media maven OR a White House denizen when "the statute" was produced.

On TV, David Gregory and others averred that the WH memo on Sestak's bribe offer "showed it was not criminal". The NYSlimes and WaPo both chimed in that whatever Rahm Emanuel, Bill Clinton and Joe Sestak "discussed", it did not "rise" to a felonious level.

But, browsing the internet, I found two Obama voters, Mike Lee and Dr. Linda Monk, who produced law:

18 U.S.C. § 600 — Promise of employment or other benefit for political activity
Whoever, directly or indirectly, promises any employment, position, compensation, contract, appointment, or other benefit, provided for or made possible in whole or in part by any Act of Congress, or any special consideration in obtaining any such benefit, to any person as consideration, favor, or reward for any political activity or for the support of or opposition to any candidate or any political party in connection with any general or special election to any political office, or in connection with any primary election or political convention or caucus held to select candidates for any political office, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both.

That is the same law that Pennsylvania mugwump Sen. Alan Specter (the victim of all this) pointed out and quoted to Andrea Mitchell on ABC News back in MARCH.

And here we are in JUNE!!!

And the law does not require menetary bribes "of value". Slick Willie Clinton to the contrary notwithstanding, the law IS what it IS.

Hat tip to Linda Monk and Mike Lee, at

Remember, the cover-up is ALWAYS nastier than the original stench.
