Vito Lopez

Brooklyn‘s longtime Democratic powerhouse, is resigningfrom his powerful leadership post but keeping his Assembly seat, he announced this afternoon.

Lopez, who was censured by the Assembly for allegedly sexually harassing staffers, denied the allegations in a statement but said the pressure has become too great for him to continue serving as Brooklyn Democratic Chairman.

“I will not be seeking the position of party chair,” he said. “The onslaught of character attacks has put enormous emotional pressures on my family and close friends. I cannot sit by and allow that to continue.”

The Assembly paid $103,000 in hush money to settle some of the claims against Lopez but sources say there were other complaints as well.
