“This morning, the New York State Senate Democratic Conference stripped Senator Luis Sepúlveda of his committee chairmanship and assignments amid a domestic violence allegation.
“Unfortunately, this is not the first time these allegations have been brought against the Senator. Gender-based violence exacts a terrible physical, psychological, and generational toll on so many vulnerable people — we do not need leadership that employs this behavior. We need leadership that empowers women.
“I am calling for the Senator to drop out of the race for Bronx Borough President and submit his resignation from the Senate immediately.”
