Eric Massa: Mentally Challenged Swing Vote?
While some Republicans had believed he would be their new "golden boy" to show that Democrats are willing to sic naked enforcers against their own to get that swing vote --pardon the term-- it turns out that Massa actually needs to be medicated.
[Black Star News Editorial]
Eric Massa, the disgraced Congressman (D-NY) who recently resigned, made a fool of himself during his appearances on Glenn Beck's show and on CNN's
"Larry King Live."
Yet, Massa should be forgiven, so long as he doesn't give any more major interviews. Massa is clearly a sick man who belongs in a psyche ward; pronto before he harms himself. Family members, and any real friends he has, should help Massa get mental evaluation and the treatment he needs.
He has psychological issues that may also be connected to his repressed or confused sexuality. Evidence of serious illness --in addition to the non-Hodgkins lymphoma which may or may not have reoccurred-- comes from his recent behavior and utterances. The sickness may be due to the pressure of living a double life. Media shouldn't take advantage of him, even though his colorful language makes good copy.
Massa, a Republican-turned-Democrat who represented the 29th district in Upstate New York, first claimed last week that he was suddenly stepping down from Congress because of a "scare" related to "reoccurrence" of cancer. That in itself is extremely sickening if he made it up to garner sympathy or to cover-up the truth.
Days later, Massa claimed he was forced from Congress by a smear campaign from within his own party, because he had voted against President Obama's healthreform bill, since he didn't believe it did enough to rein costs.
Massa claimed that once, while naked in the Congressional gym, Rahm Emanuel --Massa called him "son of the devil's spawn"-- President Obama's chief of staff, who was also in his birthday suit, approached him and jabbed angrily into his chest because he wouldn't support the president's agenda. All these self-serving revelations by Massa coincided with reports that he was being investigated for alleged sexual harassment of a male staffer.
Massa, who is married, has claimed that, during a wedding reception, he'd ruffled the hair of a male staffer and joked about having sexual relations with the staffer. He's admitted also to using "salty language" in the privacy of his home and office and said he's solely to blame. He's also apparently had "tickling fights" with other male staffers. He shares a house with several male staffers while in Washington, D.C.
During appearances yesterday on national television, Massa admitted to groping male employees, then later in another interview backed off, suggesting that there was nothing "sexual." He also sort-of apologized to Emanuel, indicating that he may have concocted the scene of the bare-chested approach from thin air--again goes back to the psychological issue and possible repressed tendencies.
There are reports that more allegations are emerging, including compromising text messages exchanged by Massa and other parties. Massa is mentally disturbed. He does not deserve to represent anyone in the U.S. Congress; Democrat or Republicans. While some Republicans had believed he would be their new "golden boy" to show that Democrats are willing to sic naked enforcers against their own to get that swing vote --pardon the term-- it turns out that Massa actually needs to be
