A report released Wednesday evening by state ethics regulators concluded Democratic former Assemblyman Dennis Gabryszak broke the public officer’s law through the sexual harassment of legislative aides and the misuse of public resources for political purposes.

The 16-page report from the Joint Commission on Public Ethics was released with little fanfare during a relatively slow time in state government news, but is dated Nov. 16.

Gabryszak, who represented a western New York Assembly district, resigned in January 2014 after eight women, including legislative staffers and a reporter, came forward claiming he had sexually harassed them.

The Gabryszak resignation was the latest in a string of sexual harassment scandals that had engulfed the state Assembly, which included the fall of powerful Assembly Housing Committee Chairman Vito Lopez.

Another lawmaker accused of harassment, Manhattan Democrat Micah Kellner, declined to run for re-election.

But unlike Lopez, Gabryszak was accused of misbehavior amid heightened awareness over sexual harassment in Albany.

Then-Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver had been roundly criticized for initially securing confidential settlements for women who had accused Lopez of harassment, but allowed the lawmaker to continue hiring staff, who subsequently leveled similar allegations.

The report released by JCOPE in the Gabryszak lays out a string of “sexually inappropriate behavior” by Gabryszak, including one incident in which he told a female staffer he was “aroused” when talking about going to strip clubs. He would ask the woman to get him information on his cell phone or iPad, knowing she would view pictures of naked women or escort service information.

“The Commission finds that Gabryszak used the powers and resources of his position as a member of the Assembly to engage in knowing, intentional, and prolonged mistreatment of certain female members of his Assembly staff,” the report concluded. “Gabryszak’s conduct involved misuse of his public office and political power to serve his personal interests.”

The lawmaker’s behavior continued, despite a series of complaints made known to Gabryszak.

“Gabryszak demonstrated his contempt for these policies on a daily basis through both his actions and inaction,” the report found. “The members of his staff, including his Chief of Staff, consistently described Gabryszak as engaging in highly inappropriate behavior with female staff members, mostly sexual in nature. He persisted in this course of conduct despite the obvious discomfort of some, and the actual complaints of others.”

At the same time, Gabryszak in essence ran his political and campaign activities out of his Assembly district office, as opposed to a separate campaign or Democratic committee headquarters.

Witnesses told JCOPE the district office and conference room allocated with taxpayer funds to Gabryszak were “frequently” used for campaign work, including office computers and printers being employed to print and prepare campaign literature.

Staffers had little recourse, with the report laying out a hostile work environment fostered by Gabryszak.

“This conduct, when considered together with his repeated reminder to staff that they ‘serve at the pleasure of the member,’ are indicative of someone who believes his office places him above the law, and reflects a willingness to use the power of that public office to silence those who dissent,” the report found.
