Skip to comments.Massa under investigation for allegedly groping male staffers

Former Rep. Eric Massa (D-N.Y.) has been under investigation for allegations that he groped multiple male staffers working in his office, according to three sources familiar with the probe.
The allegations surrounding the former lawmaker date back at least a year, and involve "a pattern of behavior and physical harassment," according to one source. The new claims of alleged groping contradict statements by Massa, who resigned his office on Monday after it became public that he was the subject of a House ethics committee investigation for possible harassment.
Massa had said that the allegations were limited to his use of "salty language" with his staff. He apologized for making some inappropriate comments and argued he was being unfairly villified. Days later, Massa accused the White House and Democratic congressional leaders of trying to oust him from office to improve their chances of passing health care reform legislation. Massa could not be reached for comment Tuesday, and no one answered the phone at his home in New York or his campaign office. Staff at his former congressional offices declined to relay messages to him and said they did not know how to reach him.

Was he just plying a little grab ass or was he hitting on the fellers?
These dems is dropping like flies.
He brought up how Rahm Emanuel came at him full naked in the shower at the House of Reps’ gym, poking him in the chest. That would be harassment in my book. When is Rahm’s investigation coming?
All it takes is a few dominoes to get the collapse started.
Man...did he get set up......
I’m looking forward to his appearance on GB tonight...
...the enemy of my enemy....
Put out there in time for Beck’s interview.
When Bill Clinton was facing charges over sexually harassing (and raping) employees, we were told “it’s just sex”.
Why does this matter? Oh, the smear machine it turned ON.
, “according to three sources familiar with the probe.” I wonder what that was like?
And how come none of these fagolas ever punched him out, as required by man law?
You can always rely on WAPO to report salacious slurs. I guess the WH needed to rough up Massa some more. Ah, the love of diversity as applied by Rahm Emmanuel and the WAPO. The funny part is WAPO next week will bemoan the politics of personal destruction in a holier than thou frame of mind. This week they are all for it, as long as the WH tells them to be. Man, being a scummy reporter just got scummier.
IMO, if Massa were a homo, than the homo lobby would be protecting him, as they do every other sodom activist. They have been very very quiet...
Is Massa the Martha Michell of our time?
I was wondering what percentage of male-staffers in DC are gay? I would not put it past Rahmbo to set-up a congressman in order to lever a vote.
The government has been “probing” the tax payers for a long time. How does it feel now?
