From the NY Post:
He's back -- on the prowl.
Former state Sen. Hiram Monserrate -- who was charged with slashing girlfriend Karla Giraldo in the face with a broken drinking glass in 2008 -- has dumped her to dive back into the dating pool.
The pudgy, disgraced Queens Dem made it known he was no longer with Giraldo -- who stood by him after his conviction for assaulting her -- during a May 6 private party on Central Park South, where he tried out some lame, old pickup lines on some fresh, young faces.
"I'm single now," he cooed to two female partygoers almost half his age.
And the movie buff is hot to trot.
He said he wanted to take a sweetie to see "Iron Man 2" before it's out of theaters.
Despite being booted from the Senate in February and rebuffed by voters in a comeback bid in March, Monserrate still hands out his state Senate business cards to prospective dates -- but with the old phone numbers crossed out and his current digits penciled in.
Last week, he kept it flirty with one of the 20-somethings he met at the party, a Post reporter who later requested a formal interview with him.
"I'd like to date," said the divorced dad of one. "I'm looking for a good Christian woman who's good company. I want to settle down and have kids."
When the reporter said she was non-Christian, he hinted that accommodations could be made.
He also seemed to delight at poking fun at her weight.
"You're too thin," he teased.
But that didn't stop him from asking for a date.
"You said I was too thin," the woman replied.
"I can fatten you up," he shot back.
