47. You know, Specter himself pretty much told Sestak to "put up or shut up"
I've been doing a little reading to try to figure out if this is something to really be concerned about or not. Because the Republicans are on this like a pit bull, it will be something to be concerned about, regardless of whether it is really something to be concerned about, if you get my drift.

At any rate, when the story broke, Specter himself said it was a very serious charge, very disturbing, etc. Then he threw out a huge grenade at Sestak by talking about there is such a thing as "misprision" of a felony which is essentially not reporting a felonious incident even if you were the intended victim. He did this on a radio show. So Specter was telling Sestak that he could essentially go down for the count by attempting to make political hay but not making an actual complaint. Now all the right wingnutty blogs are all over this - "misprision" is their word for the day. This link to Fox News shows this stuff has been perculating since March with Issa, the whole "White House has committed a felony" stuff.

It is a DISGRACE that Gibbs and the White House Communication people have not shut this down with an effective and credible response long before now and are just allowing this to inflate to larger proportions daily. Two months is more than enough time to get their story/act together. If someone needs to resign, let them.
