Will Gabryszak make it to Albany Monday?

By Tom Precious

ALBANY -- Embattled Assemblyman Dennis Gabryszak is weighing his options this weekend in an examination that could end his political career.
Accused by seven women, all former staffers, of sexual harassment, the Depew Democrat the past couple days has been meeting with members of his family and his legal team, which includes Buffalo lawyer Terrence Connors and, as of late this week, Albany lawyer Mark Glaser. Glaser is a former top Assembly staffer whose duties included serving as the chamber's chief ethics counsel.
Gabryszak's case is being investigated by the Assembly's Ethics Committee.
Connors has said that Gabryszak has been planning to attend the legislative session this Monday, which marks the unofficial opening of the 2014 session. He skipped the ceremonial opening this past Wednesday when Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo gave his annual State of the State address.
Connors today said Gabryszak is weighing all his options.
Judging by hallway chatter this week in Albany with lawmakers, Gabryzak is in for a freezing reception by his colleagues if he shows up on Monday.
