Party bosses battle over Weiner scandal

(CNN) - The heads of both major political parties battled Sunday over the handling of Rep. Anthony Weiner's scandal, with the Republican Party boss accusing Democrats of inaction and the Democratic Party leader accusing Republicans of a "double standard."

In a heated debate on NBC's "Meet the Press," Republican National Committee Republican National Chairman Reince Priebus said that "for the first 10 days" of the scandal, "the only job (House Minority Leader) Nancy Pelosi was interested in saving was Anthony Weiner's." Democratic National Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz fired back that Priebus was following "a double standard."

    Republicans always maintain double standard for every thing that we knew
