US Representative Darrell Issa, the incoming chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, spent the weekend bashing the Obama Administration saying it was one of the most corrupt administrations ever.

The California congressman stated he intends to investigate such incidents as Obama White House promises made to Pennsylvania Congressman Joe Sestak to drop out of his Senate race in 2010,
and the allegations of misconduct by Justice Department officials in the handling of the allegations that New Black Panther Party intimidated voters on election day. 

On the heels of President Barack Obama’s alleged effort to bribe Pennsylvania Congressman Joe Sestak with a government job, a Washington insider reveals that the commander-in-chief unscrupulously tried using a federal judgeship to resolve an internal White House political problem, according to Judicial Watch, a public-interest group that investigates political corruption

According to Judicial Watch, in the hopes of avoiding an impending scandal, Obama offered his first White House counsel, Gregory Craig, a federal judgeship in exchange for his resignation. An Ivy League graduate who worked for Ted Kennedy and represented Bill Clinton during his MonicaGate impeachment trial, Craig declined the offer and was subsequently ousted from his White House position.

Rep.Darrell Issa (R-CA) claims that an offer of a judgeship was made and that Obama’s Press Secretary Gibbs corroborated that such an offer had been made.
Craig’s removal was due in large part to Obama’s dissatisfaction over his handling of Guantanamo policy, according to published reports, and he was replaced by President Obama’s personal attorney Robert Bauer.

Craig’s firing made national headlines and caused an uproar among the administration’s crucial far-left base, which accused Obama of dumping Craig “for doing his job too well.”

However, just like the Black Panther election scandal case, where the guilt was undeniable, this Administration will look the other way and dismiss the case. There will be no special prosecutor, no trial,and no investigation. As is common in the past, the elite media will assist Obama by burying the story or actually aiding in a political cover up.

The behind-the-scenes narrative of Obama’s first year in office points the finger at Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel for getting rid of Craig, who the president called a “close friend and trusted advisor.” Emanuel is famous for his statement, “Never let a good crisis go to waste,” and his “Chicago-style” politics.

Earlier last year Obama tried swaying a popular Pennsylvania congressman, Joe Sestak, to drop out of the U.S. Senate race so the incumbent, Arlen Specter, wouldn’t be challenged in the state’s Democratic primary today.

In a television interview Sestak revealed that the Obama White House offered him a top federal job to help secure Specter’s Democrat Party nomination. Specter switched political parties—leaving the GOP—and has lost last Tuesday to the leftist Democrat Rep. Sestak.

A five-term incumbent, Specter switched last spring after giving Obama the critical vote for his disastrous and fraud-infested $787 billion stimulus program. Before Specter bailed on Republicans Obama assured the contentious lawmaker he’d do everything in his power to help him win reelection if he switched parties.

Considering the president’s history, it’s completely feasible to assume that that he’s using a Supreme Court appointment to assure that a trusted political ally Elena Kagan is in place to protect his healthcare legislation when it comes before the High Court, according to Judicial Watch.
