Cuomo Releases Statement Regarding Gabryszak, More Allegations Coming?
Albany, NY (WBEN) - New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has released a statement regarding Assemblyman Dennis Gabryszak.
Gabryszak has been accused of sexual harassment by four women.
The statement reads:
The latest reports of sexual harassment in the Assembly should be the last straw.
This pattern of behavior is repugnant by every standard and directly contradicts the policies the Assembly has advanced for the last 20 years.
Assemblymember Micah Kellner's conduct, confirmed by the Assembly Ethics and Guidance Committee's investigation, has no place in New York State government. It is time for him to immediately deny these allegations or resign. Likewise, Assemblymember Dennis Gabryszak must immediately deny the allegations against him or resign. If they do not resign, the Assembly must send a clear message that they do not tolerate this abuse of women and should seriously consider moving to expel them if they seek to return this coming session.
Enough is enough. It’s a new year; let’s start with a clean slate.
Afterseeing the statement, Gabryszak's attorney Terry Conners joined WBEN's Tom Bauerle to say that Gabryszak would not confirm or deny anything until all allegations against him are heard.
Conners said that there would be more allegations against Gabryszak coming out in the next few weeks, and that due process would decide whether or not he is guilty of any sexual harassment.
