Charade almost over

From the NY Post:

The ex-girlfriend of former state Sen. Hiram Monserrate has asked a federal judge to give the disgraced politician — once accused of slashing her face with broken glass — a lenient sentence in a mail-fraud case, describing him as “the kindest man I have known.”

“Hiram has always been very, very good to me and has never been hurtful to me,” Karla Giraldo gushes in a letter to Judge Colleen McMahon, denying claims that Monserrate intentionally slashed her in his Queens apartment in December 2008 during an argument.

Monserrate, 45, will be sentenced Dec. 11 by McMahon on charges related to his having obtained while a city councilman more than $100,000 for a nonprofit group that he knew he would utilize for his unsuccessful 2006 campaign for state Senate.

He pleaded guilty to mail fraud and conspiracy to commit mail fraud last May — and faces 21 to 27 months in prison under federal guidelines. His lawyer asked for community service.

The letter is absurd. Clearly, she is delusional.

No doubt the Judge will give Ms. Giraldo's letter the consideration that it is worthy of.

Karla must be smoking
the same brand of crack that Hiram is smoking!
I think that they both deserve each other.

What did Hiram pay her to sweet talk the judge?
