This is What Happens When Democrats Act Like Republicans
Then again, Republicans don’t fold the tables and leave when the news hits:
Rep. Eric Massa (D-N.Y.) will not seek reelection — after only one term in office.
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 told POLITICO Wednesday afternoon that no one has brought allegations of misconduct to him.
Well, that’s one of the more vacant denials we’ve heard lately.
Update: Massa says it ain’t so:
He said the reports of harassment by a male staffer are “unsubstantiated without fact or backing” and “are a symptom of what’s wrong with this city.”
That’s more like it. Although since Politico is sourcing its story to “several House aides on both sides of the aisle,” we might not have heard the last.
