A fourth woman who is currently working for Assemblyman Dennis Gabryszak has filed a notice of claim reserving her right to sue the Western New York Democrat for what she alleges was “severe, persistent and pervasive” sexual harassment.

Caitrin Kennedy, who started working as Gabryszak’s director of community relations on Sept. 30, alleges in her notice that the assemblyman was engaging in his inappropriate behavior as recently as Dec. 18.

As The Buffalo News reported, Kennedy says Gabryszak suggested during her first week on the job that she accompany him to a couples massage.

He also asked her to accompany him to strip clubs, harassed her about whether she had a boyfriend, suggested she “become pregnant,” and discussed his fantasy football teams that had names related to oral sex and female genitalia and around her and other staff members.

The Times Union broke the story on Dec. 21 of a trio of former Gabryszak staffers who filed a notice of claim detailing their own sexual harassment claims against him. In that story, Gabryszak refused to comment, saying that he hadn’t seen the claim, but also insisted he had no problems with the women who filed it.

Since then, Gabryszak has neither confirmed nor denied the allegations lodged by his former – and now current – aides. His attorney has counseled him not to speak, assuming this matter will eventually be the subject of litigation.

Both Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver and Gov. Andrew Cuomo have said that if the allegations against Gabryszak are true, then he must resign his seat.
