Another day… Another Democrat caught in a sexual abuse scandal with a minor…
New York State Assemblyman Vito Lopez (D-Brooklyn) is under fire for multiple accusations of sexual harassment including sexual misconduct with a minor.
Mental Recession reported:
According to multiple sources, Lopez was even witnessed leering at a 14-year-old female intern, commenting on her “sexy attire”, and saying she should be emulated by the other ladies in his office.
Via the New York Post:
There’s a creepy new accusation in the sexual-harassment probe of Assemblyman Vito Lopez — that he even leered at a 14-year-old intern and made comments about her sexy attire, sources told the The Post.
“He made comments about a 14-year-old intern, how attractive she dressed, and he wanted one of the female staffers to dress in a sexy way like this 14-year-old,” said one of several sources familiar with the ethics probe.
Lopez’s behavior around a minor was just one of the shocking findings to emerge from testimony submitted to the Joint Commission on Public Ethics.
Those same sources indicate that Lopez had a ‘hand fetish’ in which he would frequently ask female staffers to rub his hands because they were supposedly numb. They also reported that he is being investigated for booking a hotel room in Atlantic City, in which a female staffer was asked to spend the night with him in that same room.
Silver’s actions regarding this case along with the new allegations, raise some questions aside from the original cover up.
New York Assemblyman Vito Lopez (D-Brooklyn) said he was staying in office despite the allegations. Fight on, Assemblyman Lopez. Fight on.
