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.
