Engel calls for Lopez to resign


Democratic Rep. Eliot Engel of the Bronx is the latest Democrat calling on state Assemblyman Vito Lopez of Brooklyn to resign in the wake of findings by the Assembly Ethic Committee that he sexually harassed and abused female members of his staff.
“I think he should resign,’’ Engel said during a sidewalk interview outside the entrance to the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C.”He’s got to decide. They have stripped him of his committees and everything else. I think he should. But let the voters decide.’’
Last week Democratic Rep. Jerrold Nadler of Manhattan, whose congressional district includes parts of Brooklyn, called on Lopez to resign both from the Assembly and his position as Kings County Democratic chairman.
