FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Contact: David Laska
ALBANY, NY… NYGOP Chair Ed Cox released the following statement in response to Gov. Cuomo’s op-ed and press conference:
“For Andrew Cuomo to grandstand about women’s rights to a national audience while ignoring women’s rights in New York is the height of hypocrisy.
“The Governor’s ‘Women’s Agenda’ should begin at home. If he’s serious about protecting women, he will appoint a special prosecutor to investigate Vito Lopez, who sexually assaulted his female staff members, and Sheldon Silver, who covered up sexual abuse with covert payments of taxpayer money.
“By his own admission, his highly-touted JCOPE has failed. Only a special prosecutor can provide justice to Vito Lopez and Sheldon Silver’s victims.”
