Charge: Eric Massa Only Used Some "Salty Language," Simply Tousled Some Guy's Hair, and Merely Grabbed Several Male Employees' Joints

Plus, he "giggled like a little girl" every time he referred to his "Chief of Staff."


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.

The ghost of Ted Kennedy just emailed me to say, "Piker."

Thanks to DrewM.

Beck Vs. Malkin: Yesterday, I gave Beck the benefit of the doubt, assuming he was just greasing up Massa for the interview in order to use him as a catspaw against Democrats.

But he seems to genuinely think this guy's story is important, as opposed to a fun bit of trouble-making. He gets defensive at Michelle Malkin when she suggests Massa might not be quite on the level.

Oh: But Beck sort of has a point here, if he can manage it without giving credence to Massa's convoluted claims: We would never see these leaks against Massa if he were a Democrat in Good Standing.

It's not so much that Massa is innocent so much as his guilt would be entirely irrelevant to the Democrats and the media if he were voting the right way.

Mark Foley? TopSecretK9 tweets:

Turns out the Democrats sat on this Massa mess for quite a while. Massa is the Democrat Marc Foley.

Two points: First, supposedly it was Denny Hastert sitting on the Mark Foley scandal that hurt the GOP in 2006. (Well, that and the media's round-the-clock coverage.)

Second, this adds credence to the guilty-but-only-exposed-as-such-because-he's-bucking-the-party charge.

CNN and MSNBC Demolishing Massa Before His Beck Interview: Thy Master's Bidding.

Note that, as usual, when a Democrat gets into trouble, it's just one man's crime. There is never a hint from the leftwing media about a culture of corruption here.

Every Republican scandal, on the other hand, is an indictment of every Republican everywhere for enabling it and etc.
