    I don't know if this has been such big news nationwide, but Democratic Congressman Eric Massa resigned over ethics charges and has been publicly decompensating every since. In particular, he seems to have a history of "groping" and saying suggestive things to male staff members.

    He's been pretty vocally pro-gay, so he doesn't fall in to the Mark Foley, Larry Craig mold. I can't quite decide if he's gay, bisexual, or batshit crazy?

    Wondering what others think of this situation.

    I was watching Rick Sanchez on CNN and I agree that it just isn't adding up. He is denying doing anything inappropriate but says he was forced out by his own party because he said he would still vote against the healthcare reform bill because it doesn't go far enough and that is why he resigned. I would ask him a question that Rick Sanchez posed: If you really did nothing wrong, why on earth would you resign?

    I did a thread on this subject, but it was before we learned as much as we have.
    I think its all pretty odd.

    Batshit crazy. And it makes me wonder how many others in the US Congress, on both sides of the aisle, fall into the same category. How do Americans manage to elect these loonies?

    I am not clear on the full story here, but if it is true it just shows that there are screwed up people in both parties and of any sexual preference.

    yeah, it's a case of "why did this guy go into politics, he seems like a scandal waiting to happen..." unpolished, uncertain, loose cannon, shooting his mouth off, then taking it back... icon_rolleyes.gif
    whatever, go back upstate and shovel snow in july... icon_twisted.gif

    Since Eric Massa is a former congressman from Western New York and I have followed some of this latest shenanigans about his conduct with his male staff members, I think that he is just plain batshit crazy and he needs to check himself into the nearest psychiatric unit before shooting himself in the foot again and making a damned fool of himself.

    Just got back from a gay party, with an early St. Patrick's Day theme, since it falls mid-week this year, when many don't want to get stinking drunk as tradition requires. And the subject of Massa came up.

    Everyone there bashed him for his unacceptable conduct, and also for bringing discredit to the gay community. As his history unrolls, especially regarding the US Navy, it's clear he's gay, has no self-control or respect for others, and ideally should never work in the company of other men again, whether gay or straight.

    A sexual predator is a predator, whatever his own orientation, and should be rejected by the gay community as forcefully as he should be by the straight. There's no place anywhere for a creep like this.
