Judiciary Committee requests special prosecutor

According to Fox News, Republican members of the Senate Judiciary Committee just sent a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder asking that a special prosecutor be assigned to investigate Democratic candidate Joe Sestak's claim that someone in the White House offered him a high level government job in return for dropping out of the race.

The White House says that nothing inappropriate happened but they refuse to comment further.

If nothing inappropriate happened, stonewalling is the worst thing the White House could do. It only pours fuel on suspicions that there really is a fire under all that smoke.

On the other hand, if someone in the White House--possibly even the President himself--committed a felony, stonewalling in the desperate hope that it will all just go away may be their only hope right now.
