Eleanor Roosevelt Legacy Committee: Resign or Senate Should Act to Remove

ERLC Calls for Hiram Monserrate's Resignation from the New York State Senate

On Thursday, October 15th, Democratic State Senator Hiram Monserrate was convicted of assaulting his girlfriend by slashing her face with a piece of glass. The ERLC joins together with our Board member and State Senator Liz Krueger, NARAL, NOW, and the New Agenda in calling for the resignation of Hiram Monserrate from the New York State Senate and in demanding that the Senate take immediate action to remove him from office.

“What kind of message does the Democratic Party send to the women and men of New York State if they are willing to welcome back a man who has been convicted of committing a violent crime against a woman and refuses to take responsibility for his actions? This violates every principle the Democratic Party stands for and is an outrage to all New Yorkers,” said ERLC President Cathy Lasry. “I believe this is a critical turning point for the New York Democratic Party, the State Senate, and its leaders. For their sake as well as that of New Yorkers, women, and men everywhere, it is time to place principle over politics and we call upon the Governor and the Legislature to join us in denouncing Hiram Monserrate and demanding he resign from the Senate.
