What did the President know and when did he know it?

Democratic congressional candidate Joe Sestak has publicly and repeatedly alleged that the White House offered him a federal job in return for dropping out of the race against Arlen Specter. In other words, it sounds like a Democratic candidate for Congress has publicly declared--in effect-- that someone in the White House has committed a felony.

White House press secretary Gibbs has confirmed that such a conversation did indeed take place but he insists that White House lawyers have looked into it and nothing inappropriate happened.

The most open White House in history, however, refuses to offer any details. We are supposed to take their word for it just like we were supposed to believe President Nixon when he looked into the cameras and declared, "I am not a crook!"

If nothing inappropriate happened you would think that the White House would be eager to spell out the details to diffuse the potential crisis.

How do you spell c-o-v-e-r-u-p?

Who in the White House has the authority to make such an offer but the President? It is time once again to ask the famous question asked about Richard Nixon: "What did the President know and when did he know it?"

Where are Woodward and Bernstein when you need them?

I think I heard that Woodward and Bernstein are now staff writers at Pravda.
