Here’s a petition that every New Yorker needs to sign. New York Assembly member Vito Lopez was forced to resign after a state report made public his revoting, predatory sexual behavior towards his staff. Except now he’s running for New York City Council.
What New York’s leaders are saying:
City Council Speaker Christine Quinn:
Vito Lopez running for City Council is one of the most offensive things I have ever seen happen in New York City politics. I am disgusted by his behavior, and I am going to work incredibly hard to make sure he never steps foot in City Hall.
And New York Governor Andrew Cuomo:
Vito Lopez should not spend another day in office
And the New York Times Editorial Board:
After doing years of damage to young women who worked for him, Mr. Lopez should not be managing any office, and certainly not at taxpayers’ expense.
Sign the petition right now to say serial harasser Vito Lopez, forced out of Albany, has no business on New York’s City Council
