Not going to make that call for anyone. Instead, I’ve swapped the link to take you directly to the contact page for New York State Senator Eric Schneiderman, who is heading the special committee to decide Monserrate’s political fate. Write, leave a message, etc.] Have at it.
“Monserrate’s role in a leadership coup that effectively shut down the state Senate for a month, and his recent conviction for assaulting his girlfriend, have left him ineffective,” says Queens Assemblyman Jose Peralta, who has stepped up and has received the backing of fellow Democrats to replace this walking disgrace.
Monserrate was convicted —- it’s not “alleged” —- of slashing his girlfriend’s face with a piece of glass, then dragging her by her hair from his apartment in Jackson Heights. The assault was captured on surveillance video. She required 40 stitches to close the wound. This happened. And he’s still a Senator. The calls for him to step down are not “political” —- you’re an asshole, Hiram.
“The Senate is reviewing whether to expel Monserrate.”
What’s to review?
Clean fucking house.
