Here, you are urged and encouraged to run your mouths about something important.

On May 28th, a memo signed by White House Counsel Robert Bauer was released to the press and it said that the position offered to Rep. Joe Sestak (D-PA) was not a paying one. It was one of several options discussed and included a position on a White House Advisory Board. After the release of the memo, Sestak spoke to the press and possibly volunteered too much information - again. When asked by one reporter what the position was, Sestak paused and then said - twice - that he believed it was on the Intelligence Board.

As Byron York discovered, which was reported HERE, that story didn't square with the memo. If, as the memo states, the White House wanted Sestak to remain a congressman, he would have been ineligible for a position on the Intelligence advisory Board.

Now, the Daily Caller is reporting that White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs is on record as saying the position offered to Sestak was NOT on the Intelligence Board. However, Gibbs would not say what position was offered:
The spot offered to Sestak, Gibbs said to reporters at the White House, “didn’t constitute a lot of what you’re hearing.”

But Gibbs refused to clarify what Sestak, who won the May 18 primary and is now the Democratic nominee for Senate, was offered.

Sestak indicated Friday he was offered a spot on the PIAB by former President Bill Clinton, who was acting on behalf of White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel.

“I heard presidential board and I think it was Intel,” Sestak said to reporters, describing his conversation with Clinton.
It would seem we're right back where we were before this memo came out. Sestak's story doesn't square with what the White House is saying.

Last time, it came down to either Sestak was lying or the White House committed a crime. Now we seem to be looking at a scenario in which either Sestak is lying or the White House is lying.

Stay Tuned.
