State Senator joins chorus of Gabryszak critics

The outcry continues to build in response to sexual harassment allegations against Assemblyman Dennis Gabryszak.

"I believe that is an extraordinarily unfortunate circumstance that the people of Western New York and New York State have to live through, once again," said Democratic State Senator Tim Kennedy of Buffalo.

Kennedy shares a view offered by other elected officials, including top state Democrats Governor Andrew Cuomo and Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver.

The Assembly has already moved against Gabryszak. His office is no longer allowed to have interns. Two of his current aides were also offered paid administrative leave until further notice.

"I believe that if these allegations in fact are true that the Assemblyman should resign," Kennedy told WBFO News. 

Gabryszak has made no public comment in response to the allegations.
