Albany Payday! Espada Get "Redrafted" Member Items, Monserrate Gets Chairmanship, $12,500
And guess who else is getting a payday out of the Albany Coup? Hiram Monserrate (pictured), the state senator indicted for attacking his girlfriend with a broken glass. Back in the old days, when Monserrate's indictment came down, the senate stripped him of his chairmanship of the senate's consumer protection committee, and the $12,500 stipend that went with. Newly "empowered" by the Coup, Monserrate has now been reappointed and given back the stipend.
This is what they were fighting for in Albany last month, folks. It had nothing to do with you. You just supply the money.
