Monserratitus of the Queens

Only in NY



Hiram Monserrate didn’t seem to get the message on Tuesday and is apparently looking at running for State Assembly, you know, for that recently vacated seat of the guy who left the Assembly to replace (and beat) some jerk who was expelled for roughing up his girlfriend. How long before Queens will be rid of this infection? What other offices can Hiram lose a run for?

Or is it, as many of us believe, all just a continuing ploy to raise money to pay off his legal fees?
