ALBANY, N.Y. (WKBW) - There's more trouble for New York State Assembly leader Sheldon Silver.

Silver faces a lawsuit for covering up a past sexual harassment cases involving another member of the assembly.

The two women who filed lawsuits say they were sexually harassed by assemblyman Vito Lopez.

Lopez is accused of several other harassment cases which were kept secret because Silver paid public money to settle them privately.
