Lopez Scandal Trouble For Democrats

Republicans across the state are calling on their Democratic opponents to denounce Assemblyman Vito Lopez who has been accused of sexual harassment and was censured in the Assembly. Republicans hope to capitalize on the scandal in races up and down the ballot this November. The scandal is already changing the shape of primary races in New York City. Meanwhile, Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver may face a challenge to his two decade long grip on power as members decide whether he is weak enough to challenge because of his role in the secret deal cut with Lopez's accusers.
