eric1Washington, March 11, (THAINDIAN NEWS) On Wednesday night, two days after former representative Eric Massa resigned from his post, some sources claimed that the House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office was made aware of the misconduct of former representative Eric Massa in October last year. This revelation comes just after the investigation against the Representative was called off due to his resignation.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has reportedly claimed earlier that her office has come to know of the matter only this February. Former representative Eric Massa was allegedly charged with allegations that he sexually harassed young men who worked in his office and used explicit language while talking to the male staffs. The Ethics committee which was investigating the case, has dropped the case after the resignation, sighting the reason that the Democrat leader by resignation has moved out of the bound of any kind of punishment. However, the Republicans on Wednesday have said that the investigation should continue against the former Representative Eric Massa as the public should be made aware of the misdeeds of the Democrat leader.

Wednesday’s revelation has made the case a bit complex. The Republicans are now questioning the Democrat’s Ethics committee and saying that the public must know whether the House knew of the Democrats improper behavior and had acted lackadaisically in the path of taking action. Eric Massa has on his part given contradictory explanation for his resignation. He has reportedly said that his compatriots, Democrats have forced him to step down so that he could not vote for the health care bill.
