As We Predicted: In Schumer’s Footsteps, Gillibrand Calls on Lopez to Step Down

Senator Gillibarnd is a known champion for Liberal and Democratic women (she praised as a good day for women when a female Democrat won against a female Republican in a WI recall). As such I expected that Senator Gillibrand would be of the first last week Friday to call on Lopez to stepd down. But despite the fact that some members of Congress called for it on Friday, Gillibrand was silent. However, we predicted Saturday night, that Senator Gillibrand will follow Senator Schumer who called on Satruday for Vito Lopez to step down. Today, two days after Schumer and almost three days after others in Brooklyn called out Lopez, we have the following via Reid Pillifant: “There can be zero tolerance for sexual harassment in the workplace,” Gillibrand said in a statement. “Clearly, there is no room in public service for anyone who engages in this type of unacceptable behavior.”

That puts Gillibrand on the same page as her senior colleague in the Senate, Chuck Schumer, and Governor Andrew Cuomo, who have both called for Lopez to resign, if the allegations against him are true
