THE SAPIENT SPARROW: conservatism for commoners

The National Review Online “Corner” published this information today:

Breaking: Massa Was Investigated for Groping Male Staffers   [Daniel Foster]

Sources familiar with a House ethics panel’s probe of former Rep. Eric Massa (D., N.Y.) tell the Washington Post he was under investigation for allegations that he groped multiple male staffers working in his office:

The allegations surrounding the former lawmaker date back at least a year, and involve “a pattern of behavior and physical harassment,” according to one source. The new claims of alleged groping contradict statements by Massa, who resigned his office on Monday after it became public that he was the subject of a House ethics committee investigation for possible harassment.

[. . .]

According to two sources familiar with the probe, Massa’s former deputy chief of staff Ron Hikel provided the information about the staffers’ allegations to the House ethics committee three weeks ago. Hikel had earlier sought advice from Majority Leader Steny Hoyer’s office about brewing internal complaints, the sources said, and had been urged to report the allegations to the committee.

This should make the Beck interview a bit more interesting.

I still love, and agree with, what Massa said about the Administration.  Was it the truth?  That is the question that, hopefully, the Beck interview will answer.
