Statement from State Senate Candidate Bob Cohen Calling on
Assemblyman Vito Lopez to Resign; Challenging
Assemblyman Latimer to do Same
August 27, 2012
“Creepy old politicians groping young female interns is a stereotype of Albany that must be retired. Assemblyman and Democratic Party boss Vito Lopez should work toward that by immediately retiring himself.
“As a father of two daughters, it makes my skin crawl to think that things like this go on in the hallways of our state’s highest government offices. These incidents are an indictment of Mr. Lopez’s individual character and an indictment against power-trip politicians who stopped serving the public years ago, but now serve only themselves. If there is a living example of the need for term limits in Albany, Mr. Lopez is it.
“I urge Mr. Lopez to resign from his office post haste, and I ask my opponent George Latimer to join me in calling for the same.”
