Valesky to Monserrate: Resign or we will remove you

by Irene Jay Liu

Sen. David Valesky has released a statement calling on fellow Democratic Sen. Hiram Monserrate to resign. He added that that if Monserrate doesn’t resign, then Valesky will work with “other members” for removal.

Like all New Yorkers, I have followed the developments in the domestic violence abuse case against Hiram Monserrate and been disgusted by what I have seen and heard. Domestic violence is a serious matter and a violent crime that cannot be ignored or dismissed.

The criminal justice system has now weighed these deplorable acts and determined a verdict of guilt. Now it is time for the State Senate to take appropriate disciplinary actions against this member of our chamber.

It is my hope that Mr. Monserrate will do the right thing for this body and for the people of this state and resign his post immediately. If he chooses not to do so, I will work with other members of the Senate to seek his removal. We are currently reviewing the internal options for such removal, and I am confident we will act expeditiously to end this matter once and for all.
