Ethics Investigation into Sestak?

Rep. Darrell Issa, R-CA, the ranking member of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, may file an ethics complaint against Joe Sestak, which would then create an official investigation.

The complaint? Sestak has alleged a few times, and most people believe it to be true, that the Obama administration offered him a job (Secretary of the Navy being the one most commonly guessed) if he would not run against Arlen Specter in the Democratic primary.

Issa says that, if true, that would be possibly three felonies on the Obama administration’s part (I have no idea how clear that is). If not true, then Congressman Sestak is lying. He wants to know which it is.

Knowing Congress, I doubt it goes anywhere, but it’s an interesting story.
