Eric Massa is my political FAIL of the week. Massa is the former United States representative for the 29th Congressional District of New York. On March 5, 2010, Massa announced that he would resign his seat do to pressure from Democrats and also a pending investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct of male staffers.
So in an interview with Glenn ‘The Joker’ Beck Massa told his side of the story. In an odd series of explanations Massa claimed the behavior between himself and his staffers was strictly playful Check out what he said:
‘Not only did I grope him, I tickled him until he couldn’t breathe,’ he said. ‘I should have never allowed myself to be as familiar with my staff as I was… I own this misbehavior.’
This is an EPIC FAIL, not a good look for the Democrats because with health care reform being a hot button issue the Dems need all the support they can get. Sorry Massa, but you get a FAIL for this one. Check out Massa’s interview with ‘The Joker’:
