Rep. Eric Massa has probably burned his last Democratic bridge. Expect a party change announcement any minute.
Outgoing Rep. Eric Massa went on a rant regarding White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel today during a radio interview calling him the “son of the devil’s spawn.” Massa (D-NY) went on to say, “He is an individual who would sell his mother to get a vote. He would strap his children to the front end of a steam locomotive.” Rep. Massa describes a confrontation with Emanuel in a shower: “I am showering, naked as a jaybird, and here comes Rahm Emanuel, not even with a towel wrapped around his tush, poking his finger in my chest, yelling at me.” Massa went on to say that Emanuel would go to the Congressional gym to intimidate members of congress. Massa, who is due to resign from the House on Monday on sexual harassment allegations, alleged he “was set up for this form the very, very beginning,” and that Emanuel was a key orchestrator in the plot to get rid of him.
