Massa Tells Glen Beck He Only Tickled Staff

March 10, 2010 /EIN PRESSWIRE/ New York Rep. Eric Massa, who recently resigned from the House of Representatives, told TV commentator Glen Beck that he had tickle fights with members of his staff with whom he shared an apartment. Massa denied that there were sexual relations between him and the men.

Reports, first printed in the Washington Post, surfaced that Massa was being investigated by the House ethics committee in response to allegations that the former Congressmen groped male aides in his office.

“Now they are saying I groped a male staffer,” he told Beck. “Yeah, I did. Not only did I grope him. I tickled him until he couldn’t breathe, and then four guys jumped on top of me. It was my 50th birthday. It was kill the old guy. You can take anything out of context.”
