Reps. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) and Lamar Smith (R-Texas) aren't giving up on the  White House's bribery in the Colorado and Pennsylvania primaries. Right now, it doesn't seem like any illegal action has occurred — though, of course, the move drew widespread criticism from conservatives for simply being sleazy.

Issa and Smith are continuing to attack Pennsylvania Rep. Joe Sestak and former Colorado Speaker Andrew Romanoff, with the hopes that more attention to this matter will mean more political points for Republicans. Issa told Roll Call that he would even be content to simply "raise awareness" of this under-the-table exchange.
