Rep. Eric Massa Wanted to Be ‘Frakking’ His Male Staffer

It’s not that Rep. Eric Massa, the Democrat from New York resigning his seat, did anything wrong, you see. It’s that the House Ethics Committee investigation into allegations he harassed a male staffer are all part of a giant Democratic power play plot, and the freshman lawmaker was a casualty. Which could be true! But also, Massa just admitted to saying he told this male staffer that he wanted to be all up in him.

Hitting up a New Year’s Eve wedding is where all the trouble started, Massa now says. “I have to come find out that on New Year’s Eve, I went to a staff party — it was actually a wedding for a staff member of mine. There were 250 people there. I was with my wife, and in fact we had a great time. She got the stomach flu, I went down to sing Auld Lang Syne. And with cameras on me — I’m talking three of them — filming me, I danced with the bride, and I danced with the bridesmaid. Absolutely nothing occurred. I said goodnight to the bridesmanid. I sat at down at the table where my whole staff was, all of them, by the way bachelors. One of them looked at me and — as they would do after, I don’t know, 15 gin and tonics and goodness only knows how many bottles of champagne — a staff member made an intonation to me that maybe I should be chasing after the bridesmaid. His points were clear and his words were far more colorful than that. And I grabbed the staff member sitting next to me and I said, ‘What I really ought to be doing is frakking you,’ and then tossled the guy’s hair and left, went to my room, because I knew the party was getting to a point where I shouldn’t be there. Was that inappropriate of me? Absolutely.”

And was that career-ending of him? Absolutely.

Or maybe it was his intention to vote “no” on health care reform, if you believe the conspiracy theories.

      OK, It’s creepy, but is that all there is? I guess it depends on where he grabbed him!

      Well, the staffer who blew the whistle now lost his job, and every one else on the staff lost theirs, because of the resignation. SOunds like the staffer had his own agenda.

      IDK, I read somewhere that sources say this fits a pattern of Massa’s ongoing for months.

      Hard to believe there is not more to this….

      MASSA: “a staff member made an intonation to me that maybe I should be chasing after the bridesmaid.”

      INTIMATION, not “intonation.” Dunce.

      Impossible to believe that this single incident is all there is, given that Massa has — in the space of four days — come up with at least three different stories about his own resignation: “I have cancer” and “frakking” and “conspiring to suppress my health care vote.”

      In corporate America, mentioning “frakking” to any subordinate can get you fired, reassigned, demoted, or prematurely retired.

      Maybe the House operates different, but I agree that this tale sounds mighty fishy. I wonder if this is part of a bigger story.

      This guy is too stupid to be a congressman, He is being forced to resign in a sex scandal, and he never even got his rocks off !.

      Well atleast this didn’t take place in the Men’s Room. Congressman Massa should get some credit for that.
