De Blasio Joins Monserrate Fray
October 19th, 2009
Democratic Public Advocate Nominee Bill de Blasio has joined the down-with Hiram Monserrate fray, which now includes a number of prominent Democratic state legislators and U.S. Senators Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand.
Here is a statement from de Blasio, who served with Monserrate in the City Council for seven years:
“Despite the promise that many once saw in Senator Monserrate, the revelations of his recent trial are too severe to be ignored. This is
a sad moment but we cannot allow any form of domestic violence to go unanswered. Senator Monserrate should resign from office and if he fails to do so he should be removed by the Senate leadership.”
