For those of you who don’t remember who/what Hiram Monserrate is, I will first repost a piece I did back in April 2009. As you read, bear in mind that his fate as a NY State Senator is about to be determined by the boys in the band. In fact it will be decided Tuesday, February 9 (tomorrow), when the boys figure out whether this deranged woman-beating pig should be removed from the Senate or simply “censured”.
Further down in this post you will see a release by Marcia Pappas, President of NOW-NYS. For those of you who don’t know Marcia, she is one NOW leader who isn’t into political correctness when it comes to the safety of women, and that includes taking on Islamofascism. Her press release is further down in this post. But first, please meet this shithead Hiram Monserrate so that you might get the full flavor of what a deranged bastard he truly is.
As you read, bear in mind that this POS is still a New York State Senator. Perhaps then you will be willing to contact Conference leader John L. Sampson (D) who is refusing to reveal which resolution he plans to put forward: Censure or Expulsion. Yes, that’s right folks. Mr. Samson isn’t “telling” whether they plan to throw this POS out of the Senate or just slap his violent woman-slashing hand till next time.
Amy Siskind asks a pertinent question:
Which is worse: political leaders remaining silent about a colleague who slashes his girlfriend’s face, or political leaders actively funding and supporting the criminal slasher? Well, in the Empire State, we have both!
This animal’s name is Hiram Monserrate. He’s Special. He’s a New York State Senator (NewD).

Here’s Hiram taking a walk with some police officers. He’s been free on $5000 bail and representing women of his district since last December.This is what Hiram did:
As with many perpetrators of violence, Hiram Monserrate’s indictment did not come without warning. Monserrate has a history of mental-health problems. In 1999, he claimed to be suffering psychological problems as a New York City Police Department officer, writing: “I suffer with adjustment disorder with mixed anxiety and depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder.” After an assessment by the NYPD’s psychological-services unit, Monserrate was forced to relinquish his gun. In 2001, trouble continued when Monserrate was arrested after allegedly using his car to run over the leg of a tow-truck operator who was attempting to tow away his car; the charges were later dropped.
Hiram Monserrate’s alleged assault of his girlfriend in December 2008 is a familiar tune. Man beats up woman in a jealous rage. Woman goes to hospital. Woman tells police that her intimate partner did this to her. Man is arrested. Woman recants statement, says it was an accident. Woman tries to drop charges.
But there was a difference this time: At least four security cameras in the Jackson Heights apartment building where the incident allegedly occurred caught parts of the attack on tape. The cameras recorded Monserrate in the second-floor hallway outside his apartment, allegedly yelling at his girlfriend, Karla Giraldo, about having another man’s police card, then throwing the card and his girlfriend’s handbag down the trash chute. Cameras then show Monserrate pulling his girlfriend down the stairs. Another camera recorded the girlfriend frantically knocking on her neighbor’s door. Finally, a camera recorded Monserrate grabbing his girlfriend’s arm and dragging her out of the apartment building as she tries to hold on to the door. At the hospital, Monserrate’s girlfriend was given 20 to 25 stitches above the eye for a slash made by broken glass. (Davidson Goldin, a spokesperson for the senator, says both have since called it an accident.)
Ah I see. An “accident”. He “tripped while carrying a glass of water”. Nevermind that tape. Hiram was innocently carrying a glass of water when he tripped and managed to “accidentally” slash his girlfriend’s face with the glass. Yes, that’s right. The knife really did run away with the spoon.
Hiram must be one of those “New Democrats”. You know, the ones who don’t give a crap what they do to women? He must fit right in. Because the Democratic Party is still embracing this pig. Hiram is a maniac who abuses women. And he’s an elected maniac who abuses women. And that’s just fine with the Democratic Party. They love them their Hiram.
Click here and Amy will tell you what you can do about this savage, sub-human felon who is still serving as a NY State Senator.
Here is Marcia Pappas Press Release on the February 9 hearing on the undisclosed plans Mr. Sampson has for Mr. Monsserate:
Politicians Must Stop Playing Games With Women’s Safety
ALBANY, NY (02/07/2010)(readMedia)– For a couple of weeks now, rumors have been circulating about the New York State Senate’s upcoming decision to either expel or censure NY State Senator Hiram Monserrate (D), who was recently convicted of misdemeanor assault for slashing his woman friend. Although NYS Senate Conference Leader John L. Sampson (D) has promised a Tuesday, February 9 resolution, he will not say what decision will be resolved.
According to NOW-NYS President Marcia Pappas, “the future of the Democratic Party and women’s safety is in Sampson’s hands.” In view of the fact that Democrats will lose an important Senate seat if they expel Monserrate, Pappas explained: “Democrats can either do what it politically expedient or they can do what is ethically right, by showing the women (and of course all citizens) of New York State that their safety comes first. We hope they will choose the latter.”
In that most rumors predict a decision for censure rather than expulsion, Pappas asks: “Will Senator Sampson give advance warning so that citizens can protest ahead of time? Or will he just spring it on everyone in the form of a ‘privileged resolution’ that needs no committee vote or forty-eight-hour warning?”
Some Republicans are calling for expulsion in their own “privileged resolution.” But such a measure could be voted down and/or the Democratic leadership could easily prevent a floor vote by burying the Republican resolution in a Finance Committee referral.
Pappas concludes that “NOW-NYS believes EXPULSION IS THE ONLY ANSWER.” She adds that “NOW will be holding accountable all Senators who don’t support a vote for expulsion.”
So, NY State Senators, what’s it going to be? Keep this pig or give him his due? We’re watching and we vote! Enough is enough, boys!!!!!!!!!
