NY Times editorial: The White House Employment Agency

Last week, the White House was fumbling to explain why it dangled a presidential appointment in front of Joe Sestak to get him to drop out of the Pennsylvania Senate primary. This week, the controversy is over Andrew Romanoff, the former speaker of the Colorado House.

It is true that Mr. Romanoff applied for a job with the Obama administration shortly after the 2008 election. But it was a full nine months later that the White House suddenly “remembered” the application for a low-profile job and brought it up with Mr. Romanoff, right around the time he decided to enter the Democratic Senate primary against the administration’s preferred candidate, Senator Michael Bennet.
