"Unwanted Advances Toward a Junior Male Staffer"

"But several House aides told POLITICO that the House ethics committee has been informed of allegations that the New York Democrat, who is married with two children, made unwanted advances toward a junior male staffer."
Meanwhile, the Democrat and Chronicle continues to cover up for Eric Massa.   No mention in today's D&C story that the "harassment" charges against Massa involve sexual harassment.   Front-and-center reference to Massa's lame explanation that he "uses salty language" in the office.   The D&C does it for the same reason Massa said it, to convince readers that the charges are about Massa being just a mean boss, not about making "unwanted advances toward a junior male staffer."
"I have a little problem with that one," said Jim Bowers, a political science professor at St. John Fisher College. "Salty language does not get a rumor or an allegation of sexual harassment."
