NEW YORK — President Bill Clinton's former aide says Anthony Weiner's continuing sexting scandal has been "very painful" for the Clintons, who are close to the New York mayoral candidate's wife.
Ex-press secretary Dee Dee Myers said Sunday on CBS' "Face the Nation" it wasn't a story anybody, particularly the Clintons, were happy to see dominate the news.
Weiner's wife, Huma Abedin, was adviser to former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.
Myers later said she hadn't spoken to the Clintons. She said she meant to say that like many others, the Clintons "would like to see the whole story go away."
