I've written about Congressman Eric Massa here before. I worked with him 18 years ago while both of us were on active duty, and I sent him money for his campaign for the House in 2008--even though he was a Democrat with whom I had little policy agreement. I knew him to be an honest, hard-working guy, and so I sent him a check. We've seen each other in town a couple of time since his election, and he's remained friendly (though a bit pompous--a charge that could have been made against him15 years ago, or against both of us today for that matter....).
He now appears to be in a bit of hot water. Very hot water. I don't think I can honestly say that I would have seen something like this coming.
