Massa resigns, governor may set special election

CORNING—Congressman Eric Massa (D-N.Y.) resigned, effective Monday, March 8, at 5 p.m.
It is now up to Gov. David Paterson to call for a special election to fill Massa’s seat, or let it stay vacant until the regular, November election. However, as of press time, Tuesday, March 9, Maggie Mckeon, spokesperson, said Paterson’s office has not made a decision on an election.
Massa’s decision came last week, after Massa had already said he would not seek re-election at his doctors’ insistence, due to a recurrence of cancer. In an open letter on his Web site, Massa said he had made a staff member feel uncomfortable with his remarks. He added he was told a report had been filed with the Congressional Ethics Committee. Sunday, on his radio show, Massa said the incident happened at a staff member’s wedding.
“There is no doubt that this ethics issue is my fault and mine alone,” said Massa. He added, “During long car rides, in the early hours of the evening, late at night and always in private, I know that my own language failed to meet the standards that I set for all around me and myself.”
