NY pol who made employees wear ‘sexy elf costumes,’ sit on his lap, resigns

Facing numerous allegations of sexual harassment from his staffers and demands from every area of New York’s state government including from Governor Andrew Cuomo that he step down, New York Democratic Assemblyman Dennis Gabryszak resigned Sunday.

Gabryszak (pictured), who is married with two children and is an assemblyman from the Buffalo area, claims he is innocent. He issued a resignation letter but said he was stepping down to minimize the damage to his family.

In the letter, published by the Buffalo News, Gabryszak claimed, “There was no sexual contact between me and any members of my staff… there was never a request that sexual contact should occur… In fact, there are allegations that have been made that are demonstrably false… there was mutual banter and exchanges that took place that should not have taken place because it is inappropriate in the workplace even if it does not constitute sexual harassment.”

Gabryszak supported a 2012 law intended to terminate psychological abuse and intimidation in the workplace.
