ALBANY, NY… NYGOP Spokesman David Laska today released the following statement in response to the New York National Organization of Women’s call for Sheldon Silver to resign:

“We applaud the courage exhibited by NOW-NYS President Zenaida Mendez in calling for Speaker Silver’s resignation. Ms. Mendez rightly recognizes the Speaker’s gross mishandling of sexual harassment charges and subsequent attempt at a cover-up.

“We commend her willingness to speak out while others have remained cowardly silent. Her powerful words and display of principle should inspire others to send a message that sexual harassment will not be tolerated in the halls of New York State government or any other workplace.”
