Sexual harassment is unacceptable and should never be tolerated. Assemblyman Vito Lopez has brought shame to the Assembly and is no longer fit to hold this office. I am calling on him to resign immediately.
As an attorney who has represented countless employees who have been victimized, I have seen the effects of this type of harassment, and can not stand by and allow this culture of sexual harassment to continue. No employee should be deterred from coming forward in cases like this because of fear of retaliation.
