Hiram Monserrate Returns to Bring Us All Hope
He also threatens to remain a senator "for many, many years." We'll see if he shows up during the next senate session in the balcony, wearing a cape and laughing maniacally.
It seems as if the senate's moving on with its life, though -- they've already taken Monserrate's name from his office door (from the photo, it looks like they did it quickly, too, and with a crowbar). Capitol Confidential observed someone changing the lock on the door.
Reports are now emerging that that in a Democratic conference over all this yesterday, Kevin Parker -- the senator who voted against Monserrate's ouster, and has a famous temper problem -- verbally attacked senator Diane Savino (one of our favorites) and threatened Jeff Klein ("You want a piece of me?"), and had to be restrained by conference leader John Sampson and others. Can we maybe throw him out next?
