NYT Headline: Lawmakers Expel N.Y. State Senator Over Assault

Jeremy W. Peters, February 9: ALBANY — The New York State Senate on Tuesday night expelled a senator convicted of assaulting his companion, the first time a member of the Legislature was forced from office in nearly a century. Full NYT story here.

So: There has been much – research studies as well as news stories – about the corruption suffused in incredible hubris – in Albany. Criminal corruption as well as a withering ethical malaise that has nothing to do with the best interests of constituents. So, to see “them” eat one of their own (in a period when lots of eyes are turned to the shenanigans) almost brings tears to the eyes. Hasta la vista Hiram Monserrate even if there is a chance it won’t be permanent.

Let the feasting get contagious. One down, many to go.
