Governor Cuomo says the latest round of accusations of sexual abuse in the New York State Assembly is “the last straw.”

New York City Assemblyman Micah Z. Kellner is the latest politician suspected of sexual misconduct involving staffers.  In a written statement issued New Year’s Eve Cuomo said Kellner should either deny the allegations, which were confirmed by an Assembly Ethics and Guidance Committee investigation, or resign.

He said the same holds true for Buffalo Assemblyman Dennis H. Gabryszak.  He says, “This pattern of behavior is repugnant by every standard and directly contradicts the policies the Assembly has advanced for the last 20 years.”

If Kellner and Gabryszak do not resign, Cuomo says the Assembly should send a “clear message” that it does not tolerate abuse and “seriously consider moving to expel (the Assemblymen) if they seek to return this coming session.”

He concludes his statement with “Enough is enough.  It’s a new year; let’s start with a clean slate.”

Statement from Governor Andrew Cuomo dated 31 December 2013
