Resigned midway through his only term in Congress, under pressure from colleagues in his own Democratic Party over allegations that Massa sexually harassed a member of his staff and groped "multiple male staffers" in Congress. Without admitting or apologizing for anything, Massa's resignation announcement said he wanted to avoid an investigation that might "tear my family and my staff apart." After he quit, numerous former staff members claimed that Massa had "touched them in a sexual manner, came up with reasons to have staffers travel alone with him on overnight trips, and expressed a desire to have sex with the men in the office".
