Hiram Monserrate apparently hasn't bought himself a clue.
Those perks that he enjoyed as a senator do not carry over, especially when one has been removed from that august body like a cancerous tumor. Well...that's what happens when you line your own pockets, and screw New York to the tune of $109,000.
Monserrate "directed" $300,000 to a non-profit titled the Latino Initiative for Better Resources and Empowerment, Inc. The truth is that most of those funds went to pay for extravagances from his campaign.
LIBRE's former Executive Director, Javier Cardenas, plead guilty to mail fraud. He is cooperating with authorities.
What Rudy Giuliani did as Mayor in the wake of the fatal police shooting of Patrick Dorismond was not lawful in the eyes of many.
Dorismond was a security guard and father of two children who was killed by an undercover NY Police Department officer.
Giuliani decided to release Dorismond’s Juvenile record and declared Dorismond was “no altar boy.”
But the move caused a firestorm of criticism at Giuliani because the juvenile record had been sealed, and you can’t make this stuff up, Dorismond had actually served in that capacity, as an “altar boy.”
