BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Kristy Mazurek, a local democratic operative and political commentator, has filed a notice of claim against New York State Assemblyman Dennis Gabryszak and the New York State Assembly.
Mazurek, who worked for Gabryszak as his Director of Communications from October 2008 to June 2009, is the seventh current or former employee to file and allege sexual harassment on the job.
Gabryszak's attorney has advised him not to speak publicly about the alleged harassment, and he is not expected to attend this week's State of the State address in Albany.
Governor Andrew Cuomo and several of Gabryszak's fellow state lawmakers have called on him to either deny the claims or resign.
Mazurek is also a contributor to WGRZ's public affairs show "2 Sides."
