GOP state Senate candidate demands opponent step down

MAMARONECK -

The Republican candidate looking to fill George Latimer's former state Senate seat is calling on her Democratic opponent, Shelley Mayer, to step down.

Julie Killian, citing published reports, claims Mayer refused to come to the assistance of two women who needed her help escaping sexual harassment.

According to the reports, the two women claim Mayer and other Senate Democratic officials failed them during the time they worked together around 2010. The women say their bosses called them offensive names and stalked them. Killian says all of this came while Mayer served as chief counsel for the Senate Democrats.

Killian is running on the Republican, Conservative and Reform lines in the special election for the New York State Senate District 37, which is the district that current County Executive George Latimer once controlled.

The special election on April 24.
