Sexual Harrassment Fells Dem Rep Massa

Another Democrat down for the count. This time Congressman Eric Massa (D-NY), married man, Navy veteran, serves on Agriculture, Armed Services and Homeland Security committees, is accused of inappropriate sexual actions toward a male staffer. Massa claims health issues as the cause for retirement.

According to several House aides – on both sides of the aisle – the House Ethics Committee has been informed of allegations that Massa, who is married with two children, sexually harassed a male staffer.

Massa, whose departure endangers Democrats’ hold on a competitive seat, told POLITICO Wednesday afternoon that no one has brought allegations of misconduct to him.

Asked about the sexual harassment allegations, Massa said: "When someone makes a decision to leave Congress, everybody says everything. I have health issues. I'll talk about it [later].”
The power of the majority just went to his head, I guess.
