Eric Massa, Barney Frank, etc.

Note: We have removed our original post as it was based on an erroneous and misleading report in the Boston Herald that “disgraced” Congressman Eric Massa had a dinner date with Diego Sanchez, a transsexual staffer in Congressman Barney Frank’s office. The Herald printed a retraction later in the day:
Barney Frank’s aide caught up in Eric Massa scandal,” by Dave Wedge, Boston Herald, March 12, 2010
Correction: Due to a reporting error, the Herald misidentified in today’s paper and in an earlier online article a congressional staffer who went out for a private dinner with former Rep. Eric Massa. That staffer, who works for Rep. Barney Frank (D-Newton), was not named by Frank’s office. The Herald regrets the error. [The print edition and the earlier online report identified the aide as Diego Sanchez.]
