Skip to comments.WHAT I HAVE KNOWN ABOUT ERIC MASSA (shipmates detail gay history of retiring Dem)
Posted on 03/04/2010 5:29:46 AM PST by Behind Liberal Lines
During his Navy career, Eric Massa allegedly touched at least two men inappropriately and may have exhibited a pattern of putting himself in situations where he would see men naked particularly younger and lower-ranked men.
These allegations come from general shipboard understandings and conversations, and were relayed to me by shipmates of Eric Massa.
In one instance... Massa and a lieutenant were on liberty in the Middle East. Massa had made the motel arrangements and the room turned out to have only one bed. The lieutenant reportedly told other officers on the ship that while they were in the room, Massa came up behind him and started massaging his neck and shoulders....he later told shipmates, he was awakened by Massas hands in his shorts. The lieutenant was startled and turned away. Massa rolled over and pretended to be asleep....
A few months after this incident, another lieutenant ... had a somewhat similar situation. In the stateroom, Massa had the bottom rack and the lieutenant had the top rack. ... he had awakened to Massa atop him in his bunk.
The lieutenant rebuffed Massa.
Neither lieutenant officially complained about their experiences. In both instances, Massa was their boss ...
Also ....junior officers were troubled by the fact that Massa used their shower even though it was four decks below his stateroom and he had showering facilities with the other senior officers....
These are the things I knew about Eric Massa three years ago. I had them primarily from one source, and in part from two other sources.
None of the sources wanted to speak publicly, though one of the sources wanted the story to go public. The other two feared retribution and had gone on with their lives and didnt want to get involved in an old controversy.

Upstate ping (hat tip to ntnychik)
But more importantly, don’t tell. Just. Please. Don’t. Tell.
This may be series and hugh, but I need to shower. Alone.
Step down today Mr. Foley.. I mean Massa.
Just wondering how many in Congress really should be in jail.
Lonsberry should be careful on this one....
Not unusual. We all knew Libs swing both ways.
“We all knew Libs swing both ways.
Yeah, men and boys!
If woke up and found a guy with his hand in my shorts I would have beat him to a bloody pulp. I don’t care if he was my boss or not.
Without names, they ARE mere gossip, and mere vicious gossip too. My respect for Lonsberry just crashed.
Only two types of men whistle in the Navy..Bosun’s mate’s and..
This is exactly the type of thing that’ll happen if gays can serve openly. The temptation would just be to great. It would be like putting women in with men, for showers and bunking together. It’d be a free for all. Just the way human nature is. The left is to stupid to figure that out. Or maybe they have figured it out and it’s a way of weakening our country even further.
Strange that this information had not bubbled to the surface in his 2006 and 2008 election bids.
On similar threads - I have given him the benefit of a doubt. Apparently, I was wrong;(
Just one more deceitful, narcissistic POS.
Once DADT is passed, this will be perfectly “normal” behavior for sailors.
Any sailor who doesn’t like it will get failing EOC grades as a homophobic bigot.
Any chance the seat will flip to GOP?
You got to be kidding me.
Next, you are going to tell us that the depraved Massa did not sexually harass a male staffer in congress either, and that male staffer never complained to the authorities about it either.
Vermin like Massa are a total disgrace, and have no business even sitting in the United States congress. It’s no surprise congress is so screwed up and so utterly corrupt.
I think they know full well it will weaken the military. Social engineering and their anti-Christian agenda is more important to the left than your country.
Gay men in the military is not smart - openly gay or not.
Men attracted to men who are not gay, and armed, is just a really bad idea.
And just WHY should Lonsberry should be “careful”?!
It would not surprise me in the least if Massa is guilty on all counts. Nevertheless, repeating these stories without attribution is shameful gossip-mongering. It is despicable no matter who's writing it and who's accused.
I think the shorter list would be how many shouldn’t be in jail.
Just imagine if they had to take drug tests...
My ship was pretty homophobic. On the mess deck, you were afraid to be seen eating a banana the wrong way.
More on Massa.
From the article:
... he later told shipmates, he was awakened by Massas hands in his shorts. The lieutenant was startled and turned away. Massa rolled over and pretended to be asleep....
It's this very kind of thing that has so many of us objecting, it does not allow for good order and discipline, and it's not fair for men with a serious mission to accomplish to have to deal with something like that as well. Women in the military, the reason they had separate quarters (well, used to anyway), separate facilities, it was to keep the hetero-version of this situation from occurring.
Common sense is at odds with political correctness and guess who/what suffers the most because PC wins?
If DADT is passed, I would not be surprised if there will be a lot of terminal violence against the ‘gays’ in the military.
Why should he resign? I mean it’s just the way he was born. Feelings aren’t bad or good, they just are. Maybe he could share an office with Barney Franks.
The men on your ship were afraid of homosexuals?
Massa’s in de cold cold ground......
I totally agree with that. My hubby served in the Navy for 22 years.
Nah, they just looked for a excuse to harass anybody. An openly gay person would’ve had a very rough time.
Gives Captains “Mast” a whole new meaning!
Seaman will now be spelled SEMEN.
Frigate will henceforth know as FRICK IT.
Flagship is now known as FAGSHIP.
Just imagine the charges/complaints that will be filed when openly homosexual men are not being treated the same as everyone else. This would cost a fortune. Not good for a group that is supposed to work very closely as a team.
Massa voted against the health care bill. The Democrats knew about the accusations about Massa and this whole story was leaked by the Democrats as punishment and a warning to other Democrats.
He should’ve been busted down to E-1 and given a dishonorable discharge.
He wanted a more socialist version, IIRC.
The Democrats knew about the accusations about Massa and this whole story was leaked by the Democrats as punishment and a warning to other Democrats.
Maybe, but that's only speculation. The GOP is competitive in that C.D.
Massa campaigned for his former boss, Wesley Clark.
If Lonsberry knew this before Massa’s campaign, don’t you think the Dems did too? Look what the Dems are doing to NY
Ergo ....Massa could be blackmailed into any vote.
When Massa ran for Congress he opposed the Iraq War.
Massa serves on the Armed Forces Committee. I wonder how he will vote on Don’t ask, don’t tell?
Current Elected Office Committees:
How much did Mrs. Massa know about this?
I find it difficult to believe that the Democrats did not know of the allegations against Massa, considering that there were similar allegations during his time in the military.
Funny how this stuff works. They talk about repealing DADT, and Eric Massa gets outed.
System works a little sometimes I guess.
You are correct.
He claimed he wanted the public option. I know for a fact his phone was ringing off the hook with people like me again calling to tell him VOTE NO on Obamacare.
Another Dem-Chicago example of smearing and eating their own.
Homophobic? They were afraid of homosexuals? My experiences onboard two Leahy Class Cruisers were entirely different. We were generally disgusted by homosexuals and did not want them in our midst.
Not afraid. “Homophobic” is what PC folks called us who have no tolerance for gays onboard.
Yep, same as us!
