New York Senator in court after allegedly stabbing girlfriend in the face (Video)

by

New York State Senator Hiram Monserrate (D) pleaded Not Guilty to assault charges on Friday in Queens.  Monserrate is accused of cutting his girlfriend’s face with broken glass on December 19, 2008.

Monserrate is a tough guy.

Monserrate is a tough guy.

Karla Giraldo, Monserrate’s girlfriend, appeared in court as well, defending Monserrate.  She asked the judge to lift the protection order that has kept the two apart.  Her request was not granted.

Monserrate delivered a statement after the proceedings saying, “From the very beginning, I have said this is an accident. My girlfriend has said this is an accident. Ladies and gentleman, what occurred on Dec. 19 was an accident.”

It’s incredibly hard to tell with these politicians.  Monserrate could be completely innocent.  Or, he could be a sado-masochist that gets off on blood sport.  The problem is that the justice department probably won’t actually find the truth.  If Monserrate has the right friends, he will get off cleanly.  If he pissed off the wrong people, he’s going down.  Spitzer style.

New York is ruthless.

    Innocent, my rear end!

    The state of NY better get a grip and boot this bully and pig from its Senate.

      It seems unlikely that it could be an accident. But it doesn’t really matter what actually happened. All that matters is who he knows.
