Senator Klein: We Can't Wait to Punish Monserrate

From Daily News: A top state senator wants a committee to start reviewing the issue of possible discipline for convicted Sen. Hiram Monserrate this week.

Senate Deputy Majority Leader Jeff Klein (D-Bronx) doesn't believe the chamber should wait until after Monserrate is sentenced in December on a charge of misdemeanor assault against his girlfriend.

A Senate committee can recommend sanctions against the embattled Monserrate ranging from censure to expulsion.

Klein refused to say whether he agrees with a number of his fellow Dems that Monserrate should resign or be ousted.

"We have a process to follow," he said.

"It may very well lead to his ouster after the committee reviews the record and the law and Senate rules."

Austin Shafran, spokesman for Senate President Malcolm Smith, said the Senate is considering further sanctions against Monserrate but wouldn't put a timetable on them.
