White House press secretary Jay Carney on Tuesday responded to a reporter’s question about Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius’ fundraising for “Obamacare” by comparing it to questions about President Obama’s birth certificate.
“Do the questions raised about HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and her efforts to raise funds though the private sector for Enroll Now fall into that category?” asked Major Garrett, CBS News’ chief White House correspondent, as regards recent scandals to which the White House has been forced to respond.
“We can go down the list of questions,” Mr. Carney replied. “We can say: ‘What about the president’s birth certificate. Was that legitimate?’”
“I’m asking about Sebelius,” Mr. Garrett said. “I’m not asking about that.”
