A man of the people

22 May

Vito-Lopez-sizedDemocrat Vito Lopez is a New York state lawmaker.

He’s quit that job just before he was tossed out of the building.

Lopez has resigned from his seat because he was facing expulsion from the Legislature over a flood of sexual harassment allegations against him.

They include asking young female staffers to massage him and join him in hotel rooms.

The guy is 72 years old for goodness sake.

This comes after demands by the Assembly Speaker and Governor Andrew Cuomo to resign immediately.

First he said no, then he quit.

This happened after the Speaker censured Lopez, stripped him of his Housing Committee chairmanship and seniority and barred him from employing interns or anyone under the age of 21.

So, what’s he going to do?

Become a candidate for the New York City Council representing Brooklyn.

Last week, a state ethics report said he didn’t break any laws but listed his history for propositioning young women, his high-heel fetish and his aversion to bras.

Fine, upstanding public servant.
