Was Sestak Bribed To Not Run?

Believe it or not Congressman Sestak is the one making the claim that he was offered a job by the administration if he refused to run for the Senate:

Senators cannot get elected without the backing of a party. The parties have made it impossible for competitors to challenge them. Senators care more about their party than about the voters. The idea that the 17th Amendment made Senators more accountable to the people is a joke. Repeal the 17th Amendment, and Senators will be accountable to their state legislatures instead of the national party. Corruption in the Senate will be virtually eliminated since sate legislatures will be better at overseeing their jobs than voters are. Voters care about what politicians say. We need the Senate to be accountable to people who will care more about what they do.
