Quote of the Day

"The Police Department does not lock up people with Class B felonies because they tripped." - State Senator Martin Golden to the Daily News

Here is the text of the resolution he introduced:

Whereas members of the New York State Senate should aspire to the highest standards of personal and moral conduct; and

Whereas Senate members should, by their conduct, serve as examples to the citizens of the State; and

Whereas Hiram Monserrate, a New York State Senator Elect, has been charged with feloneous assault in an alleged incident of domestic violence; and

Whereas Senator elect Monserrate would be expelled from the Senate pursuant to law if he is convicted of a felony; and

Whereas Hiram Monserrate has until January 30, 2009 to file his oath of office without forfeiting his Senate seat; and

Whereas the public interest demands that Senator elect Monserrate not sit with the body until the serious criminal charge pending against him is resolved; and

Whereas the Legislative Law provides that the Senate may expel any member after a committee shall have investigated the charges against the senator; now therfore be it

Resolved that the members of the New York State Senate hereby express their strong advice that Senator elect Monserrate shall not sit with the body until the criminal charge pending against him is finally disposed of; and be it further

Resolved that a suitably engrossed copy of this resolution be delivered to Hiram Monserrate.

The story will change tomorrow, again. Monster-Rat will probably say: "No, Carla DOES NOT have a drug problem. I THOUGHT I saw drugs in her purse, and I accidentally tripped. It was all just a silly misunderstanding. Carla had a bag of Pop Rocks in her purse. What's the problem?"

Was the event that they were at the Queens Democratic Organiztaton Christmas Party?

Did they bring drugs into THAT event?

WHAT kind of drugs are we talking about?

She had a wrapped unused condom in her purse. Hiram and Karla do not practice that form of birth control. That is precisely what Monserrate found in the purse and led directly to the assault. Unfortunately Karla has drank the KoolAid and will not cooperate with the DA. It will be very difficult (though not impossible0 to prosecute this assault.

Sacré bleu! Drugs at a Democratic event? What startling revelations will come next? The weapons industry paying bribes to Republicans? Marijuana at rock concerts?

It was a condom. Exactly what she told the responding officers.

I am sorry. WAS it a condom?

Or did she TELL the responding officers it was a condom?

For us non-hacks this is a slight difference you know.

Was he lying the first, second, or third time he told some story?

Witness this: A guy who lies with ease wants to take to oath of office on schedule.

Is there no elected employee capable of simple honesty?

Don't let this guy take office until this is resolved or perhaps he should forfeit the office.

"feloneous" should be spelled "felonious" in the resolution.
