From the Daily News:
Embattled Brooklyn Assemblyman Vito Lopez is facing a major new health crisis, he told the Daily News.
Already fighting cancer, Lopez said doctors have found two new growths on his brain and are trying to determine if those growths are cancerous.
Doctors are looking for a way to do a biopsy without opening the veteran assemblyman’s skull, he said.
From the Daily News:
Assemblyman Vito Lopez refused to testify before a state ethics commission probing allegations of his pervy behavior because of a related criminal probe, a source close to Lopez told the Daily News.
The source insists Lopez did not testify before the Joint Commission on Public Ethics at the urging of his lawyer because the interviews were being done in conjunction with the criminal probe by Staten Island District Attorney Dan Donovan.
The source said Lopez’s lawyer told the ethics commission that the assemblyman would “come in and talk to JCOPE only, but they said ‘no.’”
From the NY Post:
Under fire for sex-harassment charges, State Assemblyman Vito Lopez is planning a political strategy session with allies next week that could propel him toward a run for City Council — or retirement by the end of the year.
At the state Capitol yesterday to vote on the new state budget, the ex-Brooklyn Democratic boss — who is battling thyroid cancer and two new growths on the brain — strongly hinted he’ll either run for City Council in November or retire from the Assembly by the end of the year.
“It is increasingly more difficult for me to travel back and forth to Albany,” said Lopez (right), facing ethics and criminal investigations into allegations that he sexually harassed female Assembly aides last year.
“In the last eight months, I’ve gotten pneumonia twice,” Lopez said in the Assembly. “I’m continuing to have cancer-related problems, and I find it extremely difficult to sustain even another year here.”

His doctors will come up some lame excuse that the tumors were causing his vulgar behavior; as if the common sense part of his brain was'nt functioning anymore. Frankly, I'm sick of these narcissict politians who think they can use and abuse. If he is guilty throw away the f---king key.
Why did Silver use our tax dollars to pay his eeo settlement?????????
Self-sacrificing he is, and what concern he shows for the residents of his assembly district. It's all about their voices getting heard in Albany.
He is a pathetic human being.
