Accused sexual harasser Vito Lopez made it clear in an all-caps statement that he intends to remain planted in his Assembly seat despite the many calls for him to step down. Add to the list Senator Chuck Schumer's urging for a resolution demanding that the Brooklyn assemblyman resign. “If the vote is 149–0, I think he’d have to step down,” Schumer said, the Daily News reports. Only Schumer didn't factor into the equation that Lopez apparently doesn't care what anyone thinks.
