Attorney General Andrew Cuomo says a court ruling upholding the expulsion of Senator Hiram Monserrate is a step in the right direction in changing the culture in Albany.
The ruling likely ends Montserrates effort to reverse the overwhelming vote last week to boot him for behavior, including the assault of his girlfriend and a general thuggish behavior. The ex City cop is welcome to run for the seat again said the judge. With the seat being filled in a special election there is little chance Montserrate could get on the ballot...certainly not on the Democratic line in his Queens district.
