Yet another Senate Republican joined Hudson Valley lawmaker John Bonacic in calling for Dean Skelos to step aside from his post as majority leader in the chamber.

The latest call has come from freshman lawmaker Rob Ortt, who succeeded Sen. George Maziarz in a western New York district.

“There is a lot of work to get done in the Capitol, and I do not believe Senator Skelos can effectively lead our chamber in important legislative matters with this indictment hanging over his head,” Ortt said in a statement. “The functioning of the state Senate, and our state government, requires a leader whose sole focus is on the needs of New Yorkers. Issues like job creation, tax relief, infrastructure improvements, and education policy are far too important and they demand our undivided attention. Therefore, I believe someone else should step in to carry on the role of Majority Leader.”

Ortt’s statement came moments after Skelos defiantly told reporters he had the support of his Republican conference to continue on in the leadership position.

Another freshman, Sen. George Amedore, has also called on Skelos to resign as leader.

A fourth Republican, Sen. Rich Funke, has said Skelos should step aside “at least temporarily.”

Republicans emerged from a closed-door conference on Monday after huddling with Skelos, who is accused of six counts of corruption and fraud.

The announcement that Skelos would continue on as speaker came from Long Island Sen. Ken LaValle, a Skelos ally in the chamber.
