DelMonte: Monserrate Should Resign from Senate

From Assemblywoman DelMonte:
“It is unacceptable that Sen. Hiram Monserrate (D-Queens) continues to serve in the state Senate.  Sen. Monserrate may have been cleared of felony charges in the battery case against his girlfriend but he was found guilty of misdemeanor assault.”

“Senator Monserrate showed poor judgment last December in an altercation with a girlfriend and he showed poor judgment with his participation in the ill-conceived coup in June.  His actions in December against his girlfriend and in June, with three other Senators, helped create an image that has needlessly tarnished the reputations of all legislators at a time when we are confronting serious fiscal challenges in the state.”

“I authored the Kari Ann Gorman bill this year which would require students in 7th to 12th grades to learn about dating and domestic violence.  Domestic violence is unacceptable under any circumstance but often spikes under stressful conditions. There is no acceptable level of battery, especially from someone in public office.  Legislators make laws and are not entitled to special exemptions.”

“I call on the Senate sponsor of the bill, Sen. George Maziarz (R-Newfane), to join other colleagues in the Senate who are calling for Sen. Monserrate to either resign his position or be expelled from the Senate.”
