From the Daily News:
Sen. Hiram Monserrate has switched sides - again.
"I'm coming home," the Queens Democrat told the Daily News in an exclusive interview on Sunday.
Monserrate stunned the state's political establishment and paralyzed the Legislature a week ago when he rebelled against his own party and voted with fellow Democrat Sen. Pedro Espada Jr. of the Bronx to hand control of the Senate to the Republican minority.
The mercurial Monserrate is set to announce at a morning press conference on Monday that he is returning to the Democratic caucus - without Espada.
His decision creates an astonishing 31-31 deadlock in the Senate and further muddles the question of which party controls that body.
