If sexual harassment reports about Massa were inflated by Democratic leadership , he "has a perfect remedy at hand," says Morrissey: "don't resign." Since he's retiring at the end of his term anyway, there's no need for immediate action.
If instead the representative is leaving to focus on his cancer therapy, fine. But in that case, Morrissey continues, he can't blame the Democratic leadership. (Morrissey, for one, isn't so sure Representatives Hoyer and Pelosi showcased the Massa ethics investigation because of Massa's intractability on health care. They may instead have been highlighting the case in order to "look proactive" in the wake of the recent Charlie Rangel ethics fiasco.)
In the end, Morrissey lays out Massa's choice clearly:
If he wants to be the "deciding vote" on ObamaCare, all he has to do is stick around. If he doesn't, that's entirely his decision, but it sounds like a smoke screen rather than an exposé.
