Roy Sekoff: Massa Is The Navy's Problem Now (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Roy Sekoff appeared on "The Ed Show" Wednesday to weigh in on yesterday's bizarre media blitz by former Democratic congressman Eric Massa.

When asked by Ed Schultz if Democrats should respond to Massa's claims that the health care reform bill will "destroy this country," Sekoff argued that the party should let it go. Massa isn't their problem anymore. "Yesterday, it was a problem for the Democrats. Last night it was a problem for Glenn Beck. Today it's a bigger problem for the Navy."

On Wednesday, new reports surfaced about Massa's conduct during his 20-year career with the Navy. Former male subordinates said that Massa offered inappropriate "Massa massages" and even "snorkeled" a sleeping roommate.

Sekoff argued that Massa has now become a political football. "Today, John Boehner came out and said that we can't let this die. We have to keep investigating it. That's the same John Boehner who didn't do anything when he was told about Mark Foley sending inappropriate sexual messages over email to a page. So you know, when we get into that realm. You know we're crossing the Rubicon into just pure political football.
