Washington Post Reports Ethics Closes Massa Case

The House ethics committee has closed its investigation of ex-Rep. Eric Massa (D-N.Y.), who resigned from the House on Monday night over allegations that he sexually harassed some of his aides, the Washington Post reported.

Massa, who announced last week he would not seek re-election citing a recurrence of cancer, denied harassing his aides in two national television interviews Tuesday night, even as he acknowledged having used profane language and an incident in which he aggressively tickled a male aide.

The House ethics panel, which announced an inquiry into Massa last Thursday without specifying the allegations it was reviewing, had not announced its decision to end the probe as of Wednesday evening.

The committee had been expected to close the investigation, however, because it no longer had jurisdiction over the former Congressman.
