New York City Council Speaker Corey Johnson issued the following statement on the Standards and Ethics Committee findings regarding their decision to expel Council Member Andy King on alleged charges of discrimination, harassment and abuse of power.

“I agree with the recommendations of the Standard and Ethics Committee. Council Member King should be expelled from office. This is not a decision to be made lightly, but Council Member King has given us no alternative. This is the third time this Committee has had to discipline the Council Member, and yet he continues to show a blatant disregard for the rules and policies put in place to protect staff and the integrity of this body, including undermining the monitor who was imposed to try and correct his egregious behavior. I want to thank the members of the Committee who were tasked with the difficult and important task of overseeing this investigation.”
