For the better part of the last week, Rep. Joe Sestak (D-Pa.) has been under sustained attack from national Republicans about whether or not he was offered a job in the Obama Administration in exchange for ending his ultimately successful primary challenge to Sen. Arlen Specter. "I think it's looking increasingly like there's something that they're trying to hide," said former Rep. Pat Toomey (R), who is running against Sestak for the Senate seat this fall, in an interview with Fox News Channel's Sean Hannity Tuesday night. "If Joe is going to be the man of principle that he says he's going to be in this campaign, I think he would be more forthcoming." Regardless of his motivations, Toomey's comments are the latest in a barrage of rhetoric coming out of the Republican National Committee and the National Republican Senatorial Committee that seeks to raise questions about a largely ignored Pat Toomey - Joe Sestak - Arlen Specter - Republican - United States Senate
