Monserrate assaulted girlfriend on video

Authorities have obtained video surveillance that allegedly shows embattled City Councilman Hiram Monserrate (D-East Elmhurst) pulling his girlfriend’s hair outside his apartment early Friday morning just hours before he was charged with assaulting her, sources told the TimesLedger.

BREAKING — Tape shows Monserrate pulling girlfriend’s hair: Sources

...sources, who declined to be identified, said surveillance footage taken from Monserrate’s apartment building allegedly shows the senator-elect pulling his girlfriend’s hair outside the door of his apartment shortly before he took her to North Shore Long Island Jewish Medical Center. Authorities said Monserrate drove Giraldo, an entertainment writer for a Queens Spanish-language newspaper, to North Shore LIJ — located on the Nassau County border — shortly before 4 a.m. where she received treatment for two lacerations in the vicinity of her left eye.

Perhaps he tripped again and grabbed onto her hair in an attempt to avoid a fall. There's a perfectly logical explanation for all of this, folks!

Well the condom angle is interesting too.

I may be old fashioned, but we used to tuck a condom on our person when we expected to get some action.

Did the advertisers in Cong. Ackerman's newspaper have a private party in a smoke filled room - a sort of special VIP section for the developers and lobbists at the Democratic soree?

Cool.

Did they get a video of the Democratic Party party?

It's the "Senator-elect" thing that annoys me. The city council are just total hacks, but I expect so much more from my Senators.

Unbeknownst to us all, not only is Señor Monserrate a former Marine, retired NYPD highly decorated police officer, defender of the victims of domestic abuse, financial controller (à la Bernard Madoff) of the now defunct nonprofit group Libre, tireless cruader for Queens District 21, holder of a political science degree from Queens College, member of the board of directors of the ACLU.....BUT he's also a hair stylist!

Don't know about these kids today, but when I was being brought up my dad told me that if he ever found out that I had raised my hand to a woman that he would give me an asskicking that I would never forget and then turn me into the police. Has this type of ethic been thrown out the window?

Nothing in the televised news tonight.

But there was a piece on how life style choices may age you.

Once again, the police, media, and citizens jump straight to the wrong conclusion.

That vicious "druggie" was head butting this sweet tempered, gentle victim of dirty politics to get him embarrassed. It worked, so far.

We must help this great statesman preserve his reputation and get to the senate where he can continue his great fight to eliminate domestic violence.

Violence against men by partners must be ended. Now!

"Highly decorated"
with some payoffs maybe?

Calling Frank Serpico!
Waz up with Officer Hiram?
Got any skinny on him?

Hiram was NOT highly decorated, and he was certainly not much of a cop. When he wasn't busy suing the department every time someone looked at him cross-eyed, he was scamming for a disability pension.
