You know Eric Massa: he’s the progressive Congressman from NY-29 who doesn’t know what ‘treason’ is. Remember this?
Yeah, they just ate that up with a spoon at the Netroots Nation thing. And now Massa’s retiring, officially for health reasons; but amid… allegations. Which is interesting; because the first, logical assumption that such allegations involved “show us on the doll where the Congressman touched you, son” may be a bit off of the mark. It may be more along the lines of the Congressman attacking a subordinate’s sexual orientation in a manner reminiscent of anti-gay bigots, virulent homophobes, and/or the new Chair of the House Ways & Means committee. At least, that’s how I’m reacting to his admission of ‘salty language‘…
But all of that pales before the real question: when is Massa giving back Rangel’s dirty money? I won’t bother asking why he took it in the first place, as I already know the answer. Besides, as of 3:30 PM EST the man’s irrelevant anyway.
Well. More irrelevant.
