"Are you gay?"

Larry King went there Tuesday night with Eric Massa, who is resigning from Congress amid allegations that he groped male staffers.

"Here's that answer: I'm not gonna answer that," Massa said. "In year 2010, why don't you ask my wife? Ask my friends. Ask the 10,000 sailors that I served with in the navy."

Massa said that King's question was "insulting."

"I didn't mean it to insult you," he responded.

"Not me," Massa said. "It insults every gay American because it classifies people. Why would anyone even ask that question?"

"Because you said you groped someone, who was a male!" King said.
