White House Breaks Silence on Weiner, Calls Behavior 'Inappropriate'

From ABC News:

ABC News’ Ann Compton (@AnnCompton) reports: Through his Press Secretary, President Obama has finally joined the chorus of other Democrats declaring the behavior of Congressman Anthony Weiner a problem.

“The President feels, we feel at the White house this is a distraction,” White House press secretary Jay Carney told reporters on board Air Force One when they asked about the unravelling developments. “Obviously as Rep. Weiner has said himself, his behavior was inappropriate. Dishonesty was inappropriate.”

But Carney refused to go the next step and call for Weiner to resign from Congress. “We think this is a distraction, obviously from the important business this President needs to conduct and Congress needs to conduct. Beyond that I don’t have any more comment.”
