CHEEKTOWAGA, N.Y. (WKBW) - A New York State Assemblyman Dennis Gabryszak, representing Cheektowaga, is accused by three former aides of sexual harrassment.

According to court documents obtained by Eyewitness News, the alleged behavior was so severe, the three women had to leave their jobs and now suffer from "emotional distress", 'mental anguish", and "stress."

Two of the women say they told Gabryszak's Chief of Staff about repeated sexual harrassment, but he allegedly told the women he did not want to be a part of the complaint, and that they should talk to the assemblyman themselves.
