Re: Pelosi’s Staff Knew

A glaring question I continue to have is: If there were complaints over a year ago about Massa (as the Washington Post mentioned yesterday, groping allegations were made in January 2009), was someone sitting on them for a year before (we’re told) Hoyer and Pelosi knew? Could it be that no one in the leadership knew they had a freshman who was being accused of groping staffers, in a culture where we are trained to be hypersensitive about sexual harassment in the workplace?

I wonder, even as I wish this story would go away.
