Amidst a week populated with reports of government scandals, Debbie Wasserman Schulz denied that any of these reports would affect Democrats or President Obama.

On MSNBC today, DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz seemed surprised this morning when host Thomas Roberts asked her about the photos revealed by the L.A. Times of soldiers posing with the remains of Afghan suicide bombers.

Roberts asked the DNC chair if these controversial images affected the image of President Obama's military leadership.

"There is not a connection between the president and these pictures or -- um. I mean this -- these unfortunate pictures really are a reflection that -- of the bad judgment, terrible judgment and mistakes made by troops and their supervisors," she replied.

Wasserman Schultz said that the desecration of anyone's remains was 'unacceptable.'

"It's unacceptable to the President and the appropriate consequences need to be unleashed on the individuals that took part in this," she added.

When asked about the Secret Service prostitution scandal and the GSA spending scandals, Wasserman Schultz asserted that they would have no affect on Democrats or President Obama's re-election campaign.

"President Obama has, as President, adopted the highest ethical standards and requirements of his staff of any president in history both in the White House and across the administration," she asserted.
