Today, Congressman Jerrold Nadler (D-Manhattan/Brooklyn) called on Assemblyman Vito Lopez to resign from the Assembly and as County Chair of the Brooklyn Democratic Party as a result of Ethics Committee finding him guilty of sexual harassment and abuse. Congressman Nadler's statement follows:

"I applaud the work of both the bi-partisan Assembly Ethics Committee and Speaker Silver for the swift and judicious action in removing Assemblyman Vito Lopez from the Chairmanship of the Assembly Housing Committee and in taking other punitive steps as a result of the findings that Assemblyman Lopez was guilty of multiple acts of sexual harassment and abuse," said Nadler. "In light of the reprehensible conduct revealed by the Ethics Committee, I call upon Assemblyman Lopez to do the only honorable thing by immediately resigning his positions as a Member of the Assembly and as the County Chair of the Brooklyn Democratic Party," continued Nadler.
