Eric Massa: Creepy Dude


I normally try to avoid posting about the sex-lives of Congressional folks (unless they are contradicting their own policy positions), but this nugget about Eric Massa's (D-Ny) current scandal caught my eye:
The incident that eventually lead to Massa's resignation occurred at a funeral reception on Feb. 2 in Hornel, N.Y., for Lance Cpl. Zack Smith. The 19-year-old Marine had died in an explosion in Afghanistan. Massa struck up a conversation with a young bartender serving at the informal wake.

Four days later, a local blogger alerted the congressman's office that someone had posted an anonymous comment on his site accusing Massa of soliciting sex from the bartender, according to an e-mail obtained by The Post.
Massa was (allegedly) hitting on a bartender at the memorial service for a slain U.S. Marine? Classy dude. Really classy.

My question: why did the WaPo bury this item so deeply into the two-page story?
