The Romanoff Restoration: Another White House Jobs Stimulus Program Further Exposed

According to Politico, Andrew Romanoff has confirmed that Joe Sestak’s “unpaid job offer” was just the tip of the iceberg:

Colorado U.S. Senate candidate Andrew Romanoff confirmed Wednesday that Jim Messina, President Barack Obama’s deputy chief of staff, suggested three administration jobs that would be available to him last September if he dropped his plans to run against U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet, who had the support of the White House.

Romanoff said he informed the White House that he would stay in the race. The revelation comes days after the White House confirmed that Rep. Joe Sestak was approached about an unpaid position in the administration if he dropped his campaign against Sen. Arlen Specter. But in this case, Romanoff was offered paid positions in the administration, a clear difference from the Sestak case.

Here are the three job offers (or “openings”) that Politico reports Messina sent to Romanoff. All the job listings appear to be verbose, semi-useless, mostly idiotic and uber-bureaucratic cluster-hump make-work positions — which leads me to believe the email is authentic.

You’ll notice, if you read the details of both the Messina and Sestak offers, there’s a heavy “wink wink, nudge nudge” factor involved in the offers, but still, is this transparency? Is this Hope? Is this Change? Is this legal?

Update: Gibbs responds, fairly unconvincingly.
