Congressman Massa (allegedly) groped his way through the Navy

NavyBy now, you know that Congressman Eric Massa is resigning from Congress. He isn’t resigning because he is alleged to have called White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel “son of the devil’s spawn” or something else sometimes used for money lenders, but that was certainly an embarrassing moment for Mr. Massa. Of course there are the court documents for a 2006 libel suit filed against him that recount how Massa supposedly accused former campaign staffer Sanford Dickert of incompetence and an unprofessional working acumen that included allegations of inappropriate conduct with high-school aged kids (something Congressman Massa has himself been accused of doing).

What has transpired appears to be somewhat more than coincidental. According to The Atlantic, shortly after the House Ethics Committee was informed of Congressman Massa’s conduct during his Navy days, Rep. Massa announced his resignation.

Congressman Massa and his conduct

This isn’t to say that politicians don’t all have dirt to be uncovered. Far from it. But Congressman Massa is now under investigation by the House Ethics Committee for allegedly groping three young male staffers. Eric Massa has denied this, but his former shipmates are speaking out. That’s serious business – unless they were all paid off by pro-Obamacare as Mr. Massa claims!

Anybody want a “Massa Massage?”

That’s what fellow Navy men Peter Clarke and Stuart Borsch claim Congressman Massa used to call his special kind of military manner. Further revelations from Clarke included other allegations of inappropriate forms of physical contact, including “snorkeling.” I won’t be explaining that one, but I can tell you it doesn’t have anything to do with military personal loans

Dickert’s libel suit nearly brought Massa’s Navy accusers forward

But they did not come forward at the time. It sounds like quite a mess to me. If Rahm Emanuel is the “son of the devil’s spawn,” then who is Congressman Massa? The red-headed stepchild of Captain Bligh?
