WaPo: White House Admits "Dangling" Job Offer To Romanoff To Keep Him Out Of Primary

It's just about sex an outdated Civil War-era law against political-patronage corruption in government jobs.

Administration officials dangled the possibility of a job for former Colorado House Speaker Andrew Romanoff last year in hopes he would forego a challenge to Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet, administration officials said Wednesday, just days after the White House admitted orchestrating a similar job offer in the Pennsylvania Senate race.

These officials declined to specify the job that was floated or the name of the administration official who approached Romanoff, and said no formal offer was ever made. They spoke on condition of anonymity, saying they were not cleared to discuss private conversations.

Sound Effect: rdbrewer has an idea that I should start embedding sound effects into posts -- like a Morning Zoo show -- which is a kinda funny idea but I don't know how to really implement that.

But here's your Losing Horns for President Present. See, he didn't bid high enough, right?
