White House Involved In Attempt To Get Meek To Drop Out Of Florida Senate Race

The Obama White House was apparently involved in illegally trying to manipulate the Florida Senate race.

After Marco Rubio won the Republican primary, RINO Charlie Crist decided to run as an independent in a three man race with Democrat Kendrick Meek, and for a brief time Crist was even ahead in the polls,with Meek a distant third.

This gave rise in the White House to the strategy of getting Meek to drop out of the race and endorse Crist, probably with the idea of having Crist pull an Arlen Spector after winning the race.

Bill Clinton has admitted that he spoke to Meek several times in an effort to get him to leave the race and endorse Crist.

And Charlie Crist is saying the White House was directly involved and sent ex-president Clinton as an intermediary to seal the deal.

That's actually not much of a stretch. Clinton did exactly the same job in Pennsylvania for Obama with Joe Sestak, trying to get Sestak not to challenge Arlen Spector in the primary in exchange for a White House job.

And the Obama White House did the same thing in Colorado, offering U.S. Senate candidate Andrew Romanoff a White House Job not to primary Democrat incumbent Michael Bennet.

This goes beyond power politics and is deep into felony territory. It's a federal crime to offer of something of value contingent on someone's political activity or attempt to influence an election in this fashion.

We already know what Sestak and Romanoff were offered. What we don't know yet is what Meek was offered to drop out of the race or what Mr. Bill received in exchange for being the go-between. Knowing Bill Clinton, you can be certain he wasn't working for free, especially with the potential of a felony bust involved.

The Obama Justice Department naturally declined to investigate this, but I'd be very surprised to see a Republican controlled House not subpoening people to testify under oath and eventually forcing the appointment of a special prosecutor.

When that happens, it will be an open question how far up the chain of command this is going to end up reaching before someone facing prison time and a fine decides not to fall on his sword and starts talking.

Unlike Gordon Liddy, these people are not particularly noted for loyalty or courage.

please helps me write more gooder!
