AG to seek Vito Lopez fines

ALBANY, NY (NEWS 10) – New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman says he is vowing to take all appropriate action to compel a former state lawmaker to pay a $330,000 penalty for groping and intimidating female staff members.

Former Assemblyman Vito Lopez was accused of harassing young female staffers in a 2012 scandal.

The fine was determined by the legislative ethics commission after it determined that Lopez had violated ethics rules 33 times.
