CARVIN CHALLENGES LOWEY TO JOIN HIM IN CALL FOR

ASSEMBLY SPEAKER SILVER TO RESIGN

“Ms. Lowey Needs to Step Up and Do the Right Thing”

Westchester-Rockland–Sept. 5
…Rye Town Supervisor and congressional candidate Joe Carvin (R), who called on New York State Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver to resign his leadership post yesterday for attempting to bury yet another series of sexual assault allegations against one of his political colleagues — with $103,000 in taxpayer hush money — today called on Congresswoman Nita Lowey (D-Mamaroneck) to join him in calling for the Speaker’s resignation.

“Nita Lowey cannot continue to stand on the sidelines on a matter of such importance to the integrity of state government,” Mr. Carvin said. “Shelly Silver has now worked to bury at least three separate allegations of sexual impropriety; he must not be allowed to remain Assembly Speaker. Ms. Lowey’s silence on this issue suggests that she is putting political party above the rights of these young women. I urge her to join me in calling for Mr. Silver to step aside as Speaker.”

Mr. Silver has helped arrange taxpayer payouts to young female staff members for the sexual misdeeds of two assemblyman, Vito Lopez and Mark Alan Siegel, and his former legislative counsel Michael Boxley. Mr. Silver failed to immediately report any of these incidents to law enforcement authorities.
