Will Congress Investigate Barry's Second Attempt To Buy A Senate Seat?

One of the grounds for impeachment of former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich and his pending public corruption trial in Chicago is his attempt to sell the Senate seat vacated by Barack Obama. One of Blago's ideas was to land a new job in the Obama administration, perhaps Secretary of Health & Human Services. There was strong evidence that pointed to the involvement of Obama's Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel, and other Obama aides, in that sorted mess, who were helping lead Obama's transition team in Chicago at the time.

The winner of the Democratic primary for the U.S. Senate seat in Pennsylvania, U.S. Rep. Joe Sestak, affirmatively states that the White House earlier this year attempted to cajole him into dropping his primary bid against turncoat Sen. Arlen Specter in consideration for a job in the Obama administration. Sestak won't say who offered him the job, but conventional wisdom suggests such an offer would not have been extended without Emanuel's and Obama's approval.

Emanual and Obama were tied at the hip during Blago's first run for governor. The two met regularly to plot and plan out Blago's campaign. Many friends of Obama were later rewarded with jobs and appointments made by Blago, as well as lucrative state contracts. So what are the chances the Democratic-controlled Congress will investigate this impeachable offense? And where are all those great legal scholars on the Left crying out for justice at the highest levels of our government when public duty calls? Hear the sound of crickets?

Amd we will continue to hear those darn crickets. And speaking of Barry and Rahm being tied at the hips, how about that report of their joint membership in hicago's famous bathhouse, Man's Country, for a time, according to Wayne Madsen.
