Eric Massa Blames Blood-Thirsty Blogs for His "Ethics" Problems as He Resigns
Yes, Mr Massa, it was the blogs who forced you to skeeze on your little staffer boys. How could we not have a field day with this?!
Go Most Ethical Congress in History! Woooooo!
Freshman Democratic Representative Eric Massa announced his resignation on Friday, saying an ethics investigation into alleged misconduct toward a male staff member would tear his family and staff apart.
"In the incredibly toxic atmosphere that is Washington D.C., with the destruction of our elected leaders having become a blood sport, especially in talk radio and on the Internet, there is also no doubt that an ethics investigation would tear my family and my staff apart," the New York lawmaker said in a note posted on the Internet, massa.house.gov/.
His resignation is effective on Monday at 5 p.m., he said.
Massa was the second Democrat in a week to be hit by damaging ethics questions, and his departure is a further embarrassment for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who had pledged to create "the most honest, most open and most ethical Congress in history."
Come on, dude, you can't leave a large piece of meat like that hanging from the hook and think we won't start licking at the bone to get at that juicy marrow.
It's not shameless self-promotion if I recommend you check out TLP's post earlier today on the big DC smackdown, is it? TLP: Rope and Spanking are Much More Fun Without the Politics
I'd say this is a spanking for the Democrats but God forbid I be branded an asshole blogger out for blood by saying so, eh?
