VIDEO - White House Spokesman Jay Carney became a little defensive when he was asked by CBS' Major Garrett if the recent scandals were "partisan fishing expeditions" on Tuesday. After Carney asserted that Benghazi, IRS targeting, and Department of Justice seizure of AP records all had partisan elements, Carney was asked if the HHS Secretary fundraising for Obama (which is in a gray area of the law, at best) was a "partisan fishing expedition." "We could go down the list," Carney responded. "We could say, 'What about the President's birth certificate?'" "I'm not asking that," Garrett shot back.
