24. Yes there is a reason.
Sestak didn't create the problem, the WH, Rahm, and Clinton did. Sestak was asked a direct question and answered it truthfully, but did not give details. WH, Rahm, or Clinton could have come forward with those details at any time, but they chose not to. Probably because they stupidly believed Specter would win the primary, which would mean they would never have to own up to it at all.
