In light of his censure and the ugly reality of his years-long pattern of sexual harassment, predation and intimidation of female staffers, Assemblyman Vito Lopez must not seek resignation and resign from the State Assembly without delay.
There is nothing he can do salvage his reputation or his legislative legacy. He actions over the years have seen to that. He has no one to blame but himself and his ugly behavior.
Richmond County District Attorney Daniel M. Donovan Jr. has been appointed by the court as special prosecutor to investigate allegations surrounding Assemblyman Vito Lopez. D.A. Donovan will assign a team of prosecutors and investigators and discuss with them how to proceed with the investigation.
