Silver Lawsuit Possible

Gropez’s victims set to $lap ‘sorry’ Silver 
Shelly Silver (D - Weitz & Luxenberg) complaining about plaintiff's bar now that he is getting sued
Two ex-staffers of former assemblyman Vito Lopez plan to file a negligence lawsuit against Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver, accusing him of covering up their sexual harassment claims against Lopez through a confidential settlement
Gropez’s victims set to $lap ‘sorry’ Silver (NYP) The Post’s Bob McManus argues that Gov. Andrew Cuomo should consider deposing Silver.

Bob McManus says Cuomo “appears to be bug-eyed terrified” of Silver and needs to take action against him because the speaker is “not going to fix himself.” Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver may have apologized this week for botching the Vito Lopez sex-harassment scandal — but now he’s really going to be sorry. Two of Lopez’s victims plan to sock Silver with a negligence suit after two reports released... “My clients are actively considering [suing Silver] and now that the investigations have concluded we would expect a decision about it in the near future,” said attorney Kevin Mintzer, who represents former Lopez staffers Chloe Rivera and Victoria Burhans.

A source familiar with the scandal said Silver — who on Monday said he now plans to ban hush-money payoffs — could be liable for enabling Lopez by covering up the first two complaints. Meanwhile, several of the Democratic Assembly members who dutifully stood behind Silver on Monday admitted that they hadn’t even read the JCOPE report.* Speaker Silver Faces New Inquires Over His Treatment Of Lopez Scandal(NY1)  * NY1 Online: GOP Chairman Calls For Special Prosecutor * Buff News: Silver's swipe at Kearns was "false, unprincipled, juvenile and insulting."  * Elizabeth Crothers, the woman who once slammed Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver for ignoring her rape claim, says she can’t believe the speaker has mishandled another sexually charged complaint.* 1m, The Survivor

Corrupt Arroyo: Blames the Sexual Harassed Victims
But one ally, Harlem Assemblyman Herman “Denny” Farrell, said he didn’t think he needed to. “The speaker spoke and I stand for what he says,” Farrell said. Bronx Assemblywoman Carmen E. Arroyo even blamed the victims for not complaining in person to Silver. “What I think is that those girls didn’t come directly to him at the very beginning — they should! If something like that happened to me, I would go to the top immediately. It’s my way of thinking,” Arroyo said. Asked if she would want her daughters to work for Lopez, she said she “would teach them how to defend themselves.”

What Silver Says  . . .  What He Means

What Silver Says
Regarding the Vito Lopez sex-abuse scandal, here is what Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver had to say this week: “The degradation and emotional duress endured by the young women who were harassed while they served in the Assembly weighs heavily on me. I accept the criticism.”

What Silver Means
Here’s the simultaneous translation from Albany-speak: “I would like to apologize to the woman who had to sandpaper Vito’s fingerprints off her upper thighs, as well as the young ladies who had to put up with that lecherous Quasimodo leering through the second and third buttons of their shirts, and so on and so forth, blah, blah, blah.

Mayor Bloomberg would surely dispute the notion that the city he runs is a banana republic. But what else should it be called, given that a panel he controls is today expected to OK a plan to single out a private company, Madison Square Garden, and hold it for ransom? The plan would deny the Garden the right to remain in its current location as long as it wants. Even though it owns the property rights at its site above Penn Station. Even though it just poured a cool $1 billion into renovating the place.
