Monserrate Being Arrested For Assault

It is a shame that one has to even ask whether or not a convicted criminal who was found guilty of cutting his girlfriend’s face will keep his cushy New York Senate gig but so is the world that Albany exists in.

After being found guilty of assaulting his girlfriend (while receiving a very light penalty), Monserrate must now has his Senate fate decided by the a special Senate committee who will decide whether being a convicted criminal actually warrants a person being kicked out of the most powerful legislative body in the state.

Still, according to the New York Times that special committee will likely dole out a harsh punishment against the dishonorable state senator and might actually do their duty an expel one of the chambers many criminals from its halls.

Just a few weeks ago, Monserrate received three years of probation, 250 hours of community service and will have to enter into a 52-week counseling program after he was found not guilty of cutting his girlfriend’s face (another story for another day) but being found guilty of dragging her through the lobby, an act that was caught on camera and is the only reason that he even received a sentence. Monserrate was also prohibited from seeing his girlfriend.

Monserrate has been nothing if not unhelpful in the committee’s progress. After promising to discuss the matter with the nine-member panel, he has refused to talk to them and continues to appeal his extremely light sentence EVEN THOUGH THE CRIME WAS CAUGHT ON TAPE!

If the committee makes its decisions based on how Monserrate’s behavior matches up with the rest of the Senate’s, he might just get off easy yet again. If the Senate believes that it is time to make some sort of message to the public that there is some morality and values left in the upper chamber of the state legislature then it could very well be take out the trash day.
