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 on Wednesday 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.
Romanoff's campaign spokesman did not immediately respond to questions.

Autumn, is life good with your head on that sand? It's just MORE politics as usual from a group that got in the coattails of a man whose ONLY claim to fame was that he was going to be DIFFERENT. Remember that whole HOPE and CHANGE mantra?? A big O line of BS. And the ONLY defense his SHEEPLE have is "well OTHER people did it" Thats just great...JUST what you voted in MORE of the SAME. At LEAST admit THAT much now. I mean good grief.

This is for the uneducated who don't understand the issue:
18 U.S.C. § 600 prohibits the use of government-funded jobs or programs to advance partisan political interests. The statute makes it unlawful for anyone to “promise any employment, position, compensation, contract, appointment, or other benefit” to any person as a “consideration, favor, or reward for any political activity or for the support of or opposition to any candidate or any political party…in connection with any primary election.” As the OLC opinion says, § 600 “punishes those who promise federal employment or benefits as an enticement to or reward for future political activity, but does not prohibit rewards for past political activity.”
