The vote was 5-2, one of those two votes being the mayor's.

Bradley, who has not returned calls for comment, read from a statement before the vote and maintained that he will not be stepping down.

Meanwhile, Common Council member David Buchwald, who voted for the resolution, says they wanted to give the mayor a chance to step down, but now, since he won't, they will be taking legal steps to have him removed.

There is even a report that Governor-Elect Andrew Cuomo could be called upon to intervene.

Bradley was convicted of domestic abuse earlier this month.
