GOP Senators Take Up Sestak Claim

GOP senators are calling for a special prosecutor:

All seven Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee joined together on Wednesday to request appointment of a special prosecutor to look into Representative Joe Sestak’s claim that the White House offered him a job to drop out of the Senate Democratic primary race in Pennsylvania.

In a letter to Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr., the Republican senators said the assertions are “very serious and, if true, suggest a possible violation of various federal criminal laws intended to safeguard our political process from the taint of bribes and political machine manipulation.”

Sessions, Kyl, Graham, Coburn, Grassley, Cornyn, and Hatch signed the letter.
