DNC Chief Wasserman Schultz: Weinergate is a "Personal Matter"

Cartoon by Antonio Branco, “”

If Rep. Weiner were a Republican, he would have already been forced resigned by his colleagues and the Republican Party. Fortunately for Rep. Weiner, he is a Democrat and former President Bill Clinton set the 'bar of shame' for sexual indiscretions so high for Democrats, a Democrat would have to caught raping an underage child to be disowned by their party. Not only is DNC Chief Wasserman-Schultz not calling for Rep. Weiner to resign, she doesn't even think Weinergate is a topic for discussion.
Washington (CNN) — Members of the House Democratic leadership have talked repeatedly to Rep. Anthony Weiner, D-New York, to try to get him to end what several Democrats call an unwelcome political distraction, a member of the party’s leadership tells CNN.
. . . Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Florida, the chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, calls this “a personal matter.”
“It’s his twitter account. It’s his deal. It’s personal. It’s not something that’s appropriate for another member to comment on. It’s something he is dealing with personally and that’s where I think it should be left,” Wasserman Schultz told CNN.
