(Jen Chung) Even though an investigation found that Brooklyn Democratic Assemblyman Vito Gropez committed unspeakably gross behavior—like groping female staffers "all the way up" and making them wear short skirts and low-cut blouses and forcing them TO MASSAGE HIS TUMORS—he's not facing criminal charges. Now, Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver is trying to get Lopez out—after previously sweeping the allegations under the rugwith taxpayer money, of course.
Last night, Sheldon's office issued a statement, "Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver Speaker Silver intends to draft and introduce a resolution tomorrow, to be voted on Monday, to ask the Ethics & Guidance Committee to consider the full JCOPE report and to recommend appropriate sanctions including expulsion of Assemblymember Lopez. Given that an exhaustive investigation has already occurred by two public agencies, he expects the committee to be able to act quickly and to bring this matter back to the full Assembly
with its recommendations for prompt resolution."
