Hiram to enter boxing ring
From the Daily News:
Disgraced ex-state Sen. Hiram Monserrate has agreed to climb into the ring to raise money for kids with autism.
His hoped-for opponent is state Sen. Eric Schneiderman, the Manhattan Democrat who led the charge to oust him.
Schneiderman, who is running for state attorney general, wants no part of the Nov. 22 bout - even if it's for a good cause.
"I've watched the video of him assaulting Karla Giraldo enough times. I don't have any interest in watching him hit anyone else - including me.
"This is a guy who battered a woman. I am not going to a shooting competition with the Son of Sam, either."
