'EX' FACTOR ENRAGED HIRAM: COPS
By MURRAY WEISS, NY Post
State Sen.-elect Hiram Monserrate flew into a rage and slashed his girlfriend in the face with a piece of broken glass because he believed the business card he spotted in her bag belonged to an ex-boyfriend, sources said.
Investigators found the card at the bottom of the garbage chute in Monserrate's Jackson Heights apartment building after he was caught on surveillance video trying to toss her bag in the trash, the sources said.
The video also captured Monserrate's girlfriend, Karla Giraldo, 30, running screaming down the hallway holding a towel to her bleeding face and pounding on neighbors' doors for help.
Monserrate, 41, a Democratic city councilman and ex-cop, is then seen pulling her back to his apartment, sources said.
He then drove her to Long Island Jewish Medical Center, nearly 15 miles from his home, where she received 20 stitches. He was arrested and charged with assaulting Giraldo, who has stopped cooperating with investigators.
And let's recall this statement: “I would like to reiterate to my constituents and community that I have absolutely nothing to hide and all facts will become known at the appropriate time.” - Hiram Monserrate
