Obama: job offer explanation coming “shortly”

President Obama was asked about the Sestak job offer at this afternoon’s press conference, but he didn’t provide much of an answer. “There will be an official response shortly,” he said, according to Fox News. “I can assure the public that nothing improper took place.”

Meantime, former Bush aide Karl Rove insists the issue has legs.  “Either Joe Sestak is lying and he was not offered a position in the administration in return for getting out of the primary,” he recently said, according to an LA Times blog.  “You know he’s a liar, in which case not worthy of public service. Or, he’s telling the truth, in which case somebody inside the White House committed a felony.”

Sestak has consistently refused to say anything else about the offer — but is promising to cooperate with any investigation that may take place.
