NO SEXY TIME FOR THIS POLITICIAN: NY STATE ASSEMBLYMAN RESIGNS OVER NUMEROUS SEXUAL HARASSMENT CHARGES

Facing numerous allegations of sexual harassment from his staffers and demands from every area of New York’s state government including from Governor Andrew Cuomo that he step down, New York Democratic Assemblyman Dennis Gabryszak resigned Sunday.

Gabryszak (pictured), who is married with two children and is an assemblyman from the Buffalo area, claims he is innocent. He issued a resignation letter but said he was stepping down to minimize the damage to his family.

In the letter, published by the Buffalo News, Gabryszak claimed, “There was no sexual contact between me and any members of my staff… there was never a request that sexual contact should occur… In fact, there are allegations that have been made that are demonstrably false… there was mutual banter and exchanges that took place that should not have taken place because it is inappropriate in the workplace even if it does not constitute sexual harassment.”

Gabryszak supported a 2012 law intended to terminate psychological abuse and intimidation in the workplace.

Ethics Committee Chairman Charles Lavine (D-Nassau County) told the New York Daily News he would cease his investigation of Gabryszak because the Ethics Committee’s purview does not include former state representatives. On December 21, Cuomo toldWIBTV, “There will be an investigation. If true, he has to be out. Period. End of story.” On December 25, Erie County Democratic Chairman Jeremy Zellner said, “There is no place for this type of conduct; the work place should be a safe and respectful environment for employees.”
