Massa: 'They Will Stop at Nothing'

Corning, NY Dem Eric Massa claims that top Democrat operatives are behind the ethics charges that forced him to announce his resignation. Massa says that he was targeted because he is a "no" vote on healthcare reform.

A New York lawmaker set to resign from Congress Monday accused Democratic leaders of using an investigation into a sexual harassment complaint to force him to step down before the House holds a close vote on health care legislation that Massa has opposed.

“Now they’ve gotten rid of me and it will pass,” said Rep. Eric Massa, one of 39 Democrats who voted against an earlier version of the bill last year.
