ERIC MASSA—DISGRACE OF THE YEAR

Coleman Commentaries

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN OF THE TWIN TIERS…SINCE I WILL BE RETIRING FROM MY TELEVISION DUTIES IN THE NEAR FUTURE DUE OF MY RECENT APPOINTMENT TO A SENIOR LEVEL POSITION IN HIGHER EDUCATION…I WANT TO SET THE RECORD STRAIGHT CONCERNING ERIC MASSA.  

AT THE END OF HIS FIRST YEAR AS A CONGRESSMAN… I WENT ON TELEVISION TO DECLARE THAT ERIC MASSA WAS THE MAN OF THE YEAR. WELL, BEFORE LONG ERIC MASSA RESIGNED IN DISGRACE AMID ALLEGATIONS THAT HE HAD SEXUALLY HARASSED YOUNG MALE STAFFERS.

LIKE MANY OF YOU I HAD HIGH HOPES FOR ERIC MASSA. I THOUGHT HE WAS ENERGETIC AND ARTICULATE AND JUST THE RIGHT PERSON TO FIGHT FOR THE PEOPLE OF THE 29TH CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT. IN OTHER WORDS, LIKE MANY OF YOU, I THOUGHT HE WAS THE REAL DEAL.  AND… LIKE MANY OF YOU…IT TURNED OUT THAT ERIC MASSA HAD ME FOOLED.

SO TONIGHT TO SET THE RECORD STRAIGHT…I DECLARE THAT ERIC MASSA WAS NEVER THE MAN OF THE YEAR. INSTEAD, HE WAS AND IS A CHARLATAN AND A DISGRACE.

WITH COMMENTARY I’M..DR. STEPHEN COLEMAN…THAT’S MY OPINION…WHAT’S YOURS?
