Brooklyn Pol Vito Lopez Fined $330,000

The state Legislative Ethics Commission has fined Brooklyn (former) Assemblyman Vito Lopez $330,000 over accusations he sexually harassed women staffers.

The commission concluded Lopez took "inappropriate actions and (made) offensive comments of a sexual nature" to staffers, reports WNYT.

Lopez resigned in May after a legislative ethics panel censured him.

The fine is the largest ever issued by the Legislative Ethics Commission, and results from at least 33 episodes of violations, according to the NY Times.
