Dem Massa Blames Resignation On Vote Against Health Care

Roll Call: Rep. Eric Massa (D-N.Y.) told a New York radio station Sunday that an ethics investigation into his behavior focused on sexually-charged comments he made to an aide at a New Year's Eve celebration, but charged he was unaware of an ethics committee investigation into the incident until after he had announced his retirement last week. Massa said he had believed the committee was investigating an unrelated fundraising letter, and suggested that the ethics dust-up may have been orchestrated by Democratic leaders to get him out of office before the health care vote.

"Steny Hoyer has never said a single word to me, at all, ever, not once," Massa said. "Not a word. This is a lie. It's a blatant, false statement."
