Rahm Emanuel - Sexual Assault?

It sounds like some sort of sexual assault to me.
John Kass, Chicago Tribune reports the following (please follow the link to the whole story)

A naked, wet and angry Rahm Emanuel?

That's the last image Americans need in our minds right now.

But it's been seared onto our brains — just like that weird wrestling scene from the movie "Borat" — thanks to former U.S. Rep. Eric Massa, D-N.Y., who resigned the other day amid allegations he sexually harassed male staffers.

"Let me tell you a story about Rahm Emanuel," Massa said on a recent radio program, talking about taking a shower in the Congressional Gym.

"I'm sitting there showering, naked as a jaybird, and here comes Rahm Emanuel not even with a towel wrapped around his tush, poking his finger in my chest, yelling at me because I wasn't going to vote for the president's budget. Do you know how awkward it is to have a political argument with a naked man?"

I think that somebody should launch an ethics investigation into this incident. Were there witnesses who won't be intimidated by the White House or the SEIU thugs who might have also been in the locker room at the time and can testify as to the events as shared by Congressman Massa? Does anyone doubt that Rahm Emanuel is beneath doing something like this?  Is this what the Democratic Party has come to? Democrats - are you actually PROUD of this sort of man working as Chief of Staff to the President of the United States?


  1. The idea of Rahm is grotesque.

  2. Besides being a sicko-sexual situation, the idea of Rahm Emanuel naked in a locker room, "poking" a Congressman is wrong on every possible level.

    And they have the GUTS to say that Massa needs to step down for "sexual banter"???

  3. First, use some stimulus money into getting some showers for the stalls.

    Second, I agree with you that an ethics investigation should be launched into the little ballerina thug's alleged actions. Imagine the uproar if these allegations had been made against a republican.


It's virtual - it's a mirage - it's life
