The Fallout from the Assembly Scandal
August 29th, 2012

The New York Post is reporting that the Joint Commission on Public Ethics has launched an investigation into the secret taxpayer-funded settlement of the sexual harassment complaint against Assemblyman Vito Lopez.

Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver yesterday ceded fault for authorizing it.

Silver went on to repudiate the policy, which he approved, that calls for privately handling complaints against lawmakers instead of sending the matter to an ethics committee.

It was revealed yesterday that the secret payment had been reviewed by the attorney general’s office and approved by the comptroller’s office. Lopez announced he’ll resign as Brooklyn Democratic party boss.

Former Assemblyman Frank Seddio has been called a frontrunner to replace him in that post. Others are pushing for Assemblyman Karim Camara.
