Cox: Sexual Harassment is on Cuomo

NY GOP Press Release

NYGOP Chair Ed Cox released the following statement today after reports surfaced that another Democratic member of the State Assembly, Asm. Dennis Gabryszak, (D-Cheektowaga) was sexually abusing young female staffers.

Earlier this year, it was reveled that Asm. Michah Kellner (D-Manhattan) was harassing a female staff member, and Asm. Vito Lopez (D-Brooklyn) was forced out of the Assembly after it was revealed that his years-long pattern of sexually harassing female staff members was covered up by Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver.

“While Sheldon Silver was fighting to hold power this summer after revelations that he covered up sexual abuse, yet another member of his Democrat caucus was abusing young female staff members,” said Cox.

“The pattern of abuse facilitated by Sheldon Silver is a dark stain on our State. And when Andrew Cuomo was given the opportunity to appoint a Special Prosecutor to investigate Silver and root our corruption in Albany, he opted instead for a political Moreland Commission to promote his political goal of taxpayer-funded campaigns.

“Today’s reports prove that the Democrats’ culture of corruption is alive and well in Albany. And Andrew Cuomo hasn’t acted to stop it.”
