NEW YORK (PIX11)- Disgraced Assemblyman Vito Lopez not waiting to get expelled will step down on Monday

Vito Lopez says he’s not waiting around to be expelled from the State Assembly. He’s going to step down at 9 a.m. on Monday.

Lopez sent his resignation letter on Saturday to Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver.

At least eight female staffers have accused the 71-year-old of sexual harassment over the span of several years.
