The long story short of the former Democratic Rep. Eric Massa from New York is this: An unexpected resignation last week for "health reasons," followed by a pledge to "not go quietly" wrapped in an acceptance of blame for "salty language" that ended with "You've set me up" accusations lobbed at the White House and a naked Rahm Emanuel pointing a finger to his chest in the showers. (Do you know how awkward it is to have a political argument with a naked man?) Yikes. Oh, did we mention that he is being investigated for sexually harassing two male aids? Allegations that are apparently "much more serious" than Massa has acknowledge, says a congressional source familiar with the investigation to ABC News.
There's a sex scandal roiling Washington, D.C., have you heard? 41-year-old White House budget director Peter Orszag recently announced his engagement to the beautiful Bianna Golodryga, a 31-year-old financial correspondent for ABC news whom he met at the White House Correspondents' Dinner in May. Happy News, right? Here's the hitch: Peter Orszag is a divorced father of two who has achieved a cult-like tabloid following in Washington for "making nerdy sexy." (Those are Rahm Emmanuel's words, not ours, by the way.) In fact, the man in charge of making Obama's budget work even has a fan site dedicated to him: It's called orszagasm.com. First layer of scandal. Peter Orszag: By day, Obama's budget brainiac... By night, D.C. most talked about playboy... Come the weekend, attentive father to two young children. Here's where it gets messy: On November 17th — just six weeks prior to Bianna and Peter's engagement news, which they announced on national TV and on the press — his ex-girlfriend, the 39-year-old Greek shipping heiress/venture capitalist, Claire Milonas, gave birth to his third child, Tatiana Zoe, in New York City. He was not present for the birth.

A 29-year-old female elementary school teacher from Abington, Massachusetts faces statutory rape charges after allegedly having sex approximately 300 times over the course of 18 months with a 13-year-old boy. According to the Boston Globe, when McCallum appeared in Brockton District Court last Friday to plead not guilty on several of the counts, she did so with her husband of five years at her side. The Sun goes further, specifically stating that, "she was seen in court holding her husband's hand." All of this begs the question: If your partner was accused of a sex crime, would you stand by his or her side?
Oh Lordy. Sex at work just got interesting! Here's the story: two ad agency art directors were having sex in their Manhattan office one Friday afternoon a few weeks ago. A co-worker noticed, alerted his buddy from IT and the two peepers recorded the 20-minute session with their phones. The buddy then uploaded a 60-second video to his computer, sent it to some officemates and lo, a week later the clip ended up on Gawker.
