Not Him

This is one New York Democrat Senator who will be watching the internal proceedings against his colleague Hiram Monserrate.

Senator Kevin Parker is likely to face the same fate as Monserrate if he is also convicted on assault charges. He was arrested on felony assault from his alleged attack on a New York Post photographer.



Parker is almost guaranteed to be a no vote for removing Monserrate. It would set a precedent that if he was also to be convicted of even a lesser misdemeanor same as Monserrate then his removal would be imminent.

My dear friend at JLL (who is an excellent blogger and good person, despite our differing opinions) crows today in PIV comments about the Democrats beating up on a strong Republican party. The first thing the Democrats in the state senate ought to be doing is cleaning their own house.

Unfortunatley Parker's replacement could be even worse than he is. Parker, Monserrate, Espada, etc. Is there something wrong with NYC's water supply?

Time for upstate to secede!

These are honorable members of the Democratic party. Treat them as they deserve to be treated. They deserve respect. You voted Donkey, you wanted NYC control, now you have it.

I don't really have a problem with an assaultive legislator. He's an ok guy. So is the girlfriend slicer. He's a good guy too. Underneath all that cooked up negativity, he really likes women.

I have a problem with the tax cheat who runs the IRS. But I know most think he's an ok guy too.
