Too bad, Hiram

11 Feb 2010

Do bad things happen to people who don't like street vendors? Were they bad people to begin with?

Let's just say we knew Hiram Monserrate when he was a City Council Member. Despite representing an immigrant community, he was a rabid and oustpoken opponent of street vendors. He sponsored legislation to increase (!) penalties against vendors and decrease (?) the number of food vending licenses available. In 2008,  he was charged with slashing his girlfriend in the face with a broken glass, leaving a gash requiring forty stitches. This week, he was expelled from the New York State Senate, becoming the first NY lawmaker expelled since 1861.

    He should of never been Senator. The Queens Dem Leader should be ousted next for supporting Monserrate in the first place and not supporting John Sabini.
