Issa to White House: Release records of all offers used to clear field

Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) said Thursday that if the White House says nothing inappropriate or unethical occurred in discussing administration positions with Democratic Senate candidates Joe Sestak (Pa.) and Andrew Romanoff (Colo.), it shouldn't have a problem with releasing all records in conjunction with candidate discussions.

"We want them to give a full accounting of all the jobs they offered to 'clear the field,'" the ranking member of the House Oversight and Government Reform said on Fox News after White House spokesman Robert Gibbs' press briefing.

Issa addressed the argument that the offering of jobs to encourage political maneuvers was business as usual.

"As head of the party the president has the right to do it but not with your money," Issa said.

"It may go on in Egypt, may go on in Russia, it doesn't and shouldn't happen in America without repercussions."

Issa also charged that Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) was blocking congressional efforts to investigate the matter.
