FBI to Launch Eric Massa Probe

He just won’t go away: The FBI is going to investigate former congressman and salty sailor Eric Massa for corruption. The investigation appears to focus on large payments his campaign made to his top aide and to renew the lease on his personal car just days after his announcement that he would not seek reelection, according to The Washington Post. The day after he announced his retirement, Massa’s campaign paid $40,000 to his chief of staff Joe Racalto, who was a crucial witness in the ethics probe into charges of sexual harassment against Massa.
