Eric Massa to Appear on Glenn Beck for Full Hour Tomorrow

Glenn Beck will have him for a full hour tomorrow.

Now, Massa says he'll resign by 5 o'clock today (Eastern). He was asked if he could un-resign; he says he can't rescind a letter of resignation. Of course he can. And if he does, Pelosi needs 217, not 216.

But he won't. The Democrats are threatening, obviously, to out his closeted-but-only-barely-so gay stuff and he won't go through that.


Oh: Reporters are now referring vaguely to two "incidents" which happened during Massa's Naval career.

Several points:

Democrats obviously knew of this stuff long before, but must have forgotten to mention it to us.

The media would never peddle the thin stuff about whatever happened in the Navy if this were a Democrat in good standing. They've got the go-code from their masters, and so they're treating Massa... like a Republican.


Backstory: I'm rewriting this post because Drew already got to most of it. Below the fold, the backstory on Massa.


He claims that he never harassed his male aide; he says he merely made a rude joke at a party. The aide, on the other hand, says he's been harassed for eight months, not eight tenths of a second.

Massa's almost certainly lying about that. But he's probably right that Democrats are driving him out of office-- if you vote with the caucus, after all, you can have your live-in boyfriend run a male prostitution ring, or grow pot, in your House.

But when you'e against the Democratic caucus...


Rep. Eric Massa (D-N.Y.) says the House ethics committee is investigating him for inappropriate comments he made to a male staffer on New Year's Eve — and that he's the victim of a power play by Democratic leaders who want him out of Congress because he's a "no" vote on health care reform.

"Mine is now the deciding vote on the health care bill," Massa, who on Friday announced his intention to resign, said during a long monologue on radio station WKPQ. "And this administration and this House leadership have said, quote-unquote, they will stop at nothing to pass this health care bill. And now they've gotten rid of me, and it will pass. You connect the dots."

A spokeswoman for House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) rejected Massa’s charge out of hand.

"That's completely false,” said Katie Grant. “There is zero merit to that accusation."

Massa insisted that he did not know the basis of a House ethics committee investigation into his conduct until after he announced his retirement last Wednesday, and he took Hoyer to task for going public with information related to the probe before it is completed.

Here's audio of him on the radio, going full-retard.
