Just wanted to ask you all to sign our petition on www.nownys.org We are working to get ride of Senator Monserrate in NY. He is the Senator that slashed his girlfriend and got off on a misdemeanor. But DV is DV and he must go! The petition is the first article on the top of our home page.
Monserrate Must Go - Sign Our Petition
NY State Supreme Court Justice William Erlbaum from the Queens, NY found State Senator Hiram Monserrate (D) guilty of a mere misdemeanor for abusing his girlfriend. Now Monserrate will retain his prestigious State Senate seat, unless of course, the Democratic leadership finds the courage to oust him for his behavior. Sign our petition and tell our state lawmakers that Monserrate must go!
