Disgraced State Assemblyman Vito Lopez will resign his seat Monday morning ahead of a push for his ouster.

Lopez — who’s accused of sexually harassing several staff members — will reportedly step down before 10 a.m. Monday.

He was originally going to wait until June 20th to resign.

Governor Cuomo wants to make sure the assemblyman has no hand in choosing the successor to the seat he’s held since 1985.
