You guys here now.
Let's get into what I was just on Fox News talking about which is -- that case because it is getting bigger and bigger and bigger.
Just to recap a couple of months ago.
Congressman Joseph stack from any.
District decided -- on Arlen Specter in the democratic primary for US senate in Pennsylvania.
The White House decided to back Arlen Specter they thought he was the winning -- they thought he had the most name recognition and the most money.
And with the backing of the White House.
You could do it.
So they decided to back Specter.
-- -- -- didn't take too well to that and apparently according to suspect himself.
Somebody in the White House had a direct conversation with -- -- Asking him -- again this is according to suspect himself.
Asking him to get out of that democratic primary in exchange.
For a concrete good which was.
A high level job now there's been all kinds of speculation about who may have had this conversation with that -- I.
Maybe somebody else -- high level in the White House and there's been speculation about what kind of job.
He may have been offered as a former admirable admiral perhaps secretary of the navy.
So all these things are floating around suspected that repeatedly yes somebody in the White House offer me jobs to get out of this race.
I turned it down.
Well now and it's starting to blow lot.
Because he didn't back -- neck race after -- done and it would be if in fact this is true it would be a violation of federal law.
The idea that somebody offered something of value to it in a -- -- to influence.
The outcome of the federal election -- Just moments ago the Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee -- Eric Holder the attorney general a letter asking for special prosecutor.
To be appointed holder and justice over the last couple of days -- said no way no special prosecutor.
Any chance we might.
Get a special prosecutor and should we get an independent counsel.
You know that did the independent counsels have not had a sterling track record because they are without any kind of authority over them I think this as a limited government conservative.
They have run roughshod often times that over the law.
And yeah I don't I guess I'm not as worked up about this because the interest of jaded and cynical having lived in DC bad inside the belly of the beast.
Of course this happens of course you're gonna have some heavy handed political hack -- offering some -- jobs stay out of her race.
And it isn't there at different.
Let me ask my left wing friends -- there about that.
It is sure that this kind of horse trading goes on all the time but it usually happens in in one of two forms -- there.
Somebody goes into a race and loses -- race at which point they get an ambassadorship.
You lost the race that's not we're gonna help -- how we're gonna send you to.
Africa or the Middle East we're gonna give you a great job as an ambassador.
All are or it's kept her impact yet.
Right -- pay check out says that the album we're gonna back the other guy but it could work out for you in this race.
Give us a call or if you change your mind.
You miss -- caught and we'll talk.
Most seasoned politicians would handle it that way because they know a direct quid pro quo would be a violation of the loss to the question is.
What kind of conversation happen -- -- rom knocking heads together like he always does life.
You want to be secretary of the navy get the hell out of them license to -- on strategy -- but.
Get out of the race that would give -- job or was it takes effect -- if you change your mind at all.
But until we need to know the.
Speaks non -- about yeah.
Go ahead doesn't really matter is that I agree the -- disintegrated to a lot.
This goes on all the time look it's gone I think the reason they're here in New York State many people -- thinking -- running in primaries and the public -- get paid rather you not run.
And -- you know maybe -- help get.
It's all part of the -- money district will do this if -- to get Republicans to go after us again with all the issues that -- facing the would be spent hours is listing them.
The -- on a wild you know which time is really ridiculous it's over.
