NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Scandal-plagued Brooklyn Assemblyman Vito Lopez is stepping down from his seat next month, but Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver says Lopez shouldn’t spend even another day in office.
And as CBS 2’s Marcia Kramer reported Friday, the Assembly will move on Monday to expel Lopez.
There was a “closed” signed on the door of Assemblyman Lopez’s district office in Williamsburg when Kramer first got there Friday. But it didn’t take long for an aide to come by and put down a steel curtain to prevent prying eyes from seeing inside.
Kramer: “Why are you putting this gate down?”
Aide: “I don’t have a comment, excuse me.”
Kramer: “How about his decision to resign?”
