Aubertine calls on colleague to resign

by ABCNews50:

State Senator Hiram Monserrate should resign, following his criminal conviction for assault, says Senator Darrel Aubertine.

If Monserrate refuses, the Senate "must take appropriate action immediately," Aubertine added in a statement.

Monserrate, a Democrat from Queens, was found guilty of 3rd degree assault on Thursday for an attack on his girlfriend. He was acquitted of a 2nd degree charge in connection with is alleged slashing of the woman's face during a jealous rage.

The charge on which was convicted involved him dragging his girlfriend, Karla Giraldo by the arm from an apartment, injuring her in the process.

Other Senate Democrats are also calling for Monserrate's ouster.

Also joining in the call is the New York chapter of the National Association for Women, whose director criticized the judge for acquitting Monserrate on the more serious charge.

Aubertine said domestic violence cannot be tolerated, especially by a body of government charged with making fair and equitable laws for all.

"For the good of New York State and the Senate, he should step down," Aubertine said.
