New York: Democrat Congressman Eric Massa to Retire; Gay Sexual Harassment Scandal?

Massa is now the 15th House Democrat to announce retirement plans, with 11 of them leaving districts that Republicans are aggressively contesting. House Republicans face 19 retirements within GOP ranks, but most of their departing members hail from safe seats.
