Gibbs: Yeah, we offered Romanoff a job to get out of the primary

Hot on the heels of the Sestak job controversy, we had yet another Democrat come forward and say the White House offered him a job to get out of a primary. Andrew Romanoff is challenging Michael Bennett to represent Colorado in the Senate. Romanoff told the Denver Post that the White House offered him not just one but THREE jobs to get out of the primary.

And Robert Gibbs, PR genius that he is, admitted that the White House did indeed offer him a job but that “they didn’t do anything wrong”.

In a statement released early this morning, WH Press Sec. Robert Gibbs said the WH had done nothing wrong. “Andrew Romanoff applied for a position at USAID during the Presidential transition. He filed this application through the Transition on-line process. After the new administration took office, he followed up by phone with White House personnel,” Gibbs said. “Jim Messina called and emailed Romanoff last September to see if he was still interested in a position at USAID, or if, as had been reported, he was running for the US Senate. … Messina wanted to determine if it was possible to avoid a costly battle between two supporters.

Does anyone here really think that a lowly deputy COS would have done this without Rahm Emanuel’s approval? Messina will undoubtedly get thrown under the bus, of course, and Emanuel will deny any knowledge of this, as will Obama.

This is really outrageous, because as Allah pointed out, this is a crime.

Whoever, directly or indirectly, promises any employment, position, compensation, contract, appointment, or other benefit, provided for or made possible in whole or in part by any Act of Congress, or any special consideration in obtaining any such benefit, to any person as consideration, favor, or reward for any political activity or for the support of or opposition to any candidate or any political party in connection with any general or special election to any political office, or in connection with any primary election or political convention or caucus held to select candidates for any political office, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both.

And Robert Gibbs just confirmed the allegations.

The White House won’t get prosecuted, but it exposes the corruption to the country even further. Some people will undoubtedly be shocked, but why should they be? We elected a Chicago politician who has done nothing except be mentored and pushed forward by corrupt Chicago politicians in the corrupt Chicago political machine.

This was a stroke of genius on Romanoff’s part, though. He got handed a golden opportunity by the White House. They wanted Bennett to win, but now they’ve ensured Romanoff’s victory. He now can portray Bennett as nothing more than a stooge for Obama, while he’s the political outsider. Pretty convenient, eh?

  • One would think that heads would roll over this, but if Holder and Napolitano still have their jobs after ‘the system worked’ or pushing for a civilian trial for KSM despite pushback from one of the bluest cities in the country, what makes one think they’d be canned by now?

    I’m not saying they should’nt go….I’m just saying the Administration’s ralled around them after far bigger fuckups than this.
