Wright: Lopez Needs To Look In the Mirror


Assemblyman Keith Wright, the co-chair of the state Democratic Committee, said it’s up to Vito Lopez whether to resign.

But Wright, the Harlem Democrat, said Lopez might want to look in the mirror and see what’s the right thing to do.

“That’s a personal decision. He needs to make that decision. You know, any candidate, any person in politics, needs to ask himself a couple of questions,” Wright said this morning. “Sometimes the hardest person to talk to is the person in the mirror. Is he capable of leading and does he want to do it? Now, I think I know the answers to those questions, but he has to answer those questions for himself.”

Wright wouldn’t say what he would do, but said, “I think I have my own answers to the questions, but that’s up to him.”

As for Lopez taking away from the Democratic convention, Wright shrugged it off with first, “Who?”

And then, “Hurricane Isaac is a distraction. Vito ain’t no distraction. This is light stuff.”
