Queens voter: Monserrate is not a good example to our children

He is not a good example for our children.

Queens voter Pedro Duran provided one of the innumerable takeaways from former state Sen. Hiram Monserrate's failed campaign to regain his seat in the 13th State Senatorial District's special election. State Assemblyman José Peralta garnered 66 percent of the vote, compared to the 27 percent Monserrate and 7 percent administrative law judge Robert Beltrani received.

A judge convicted Monserrate last October of misdemeanor assault against his girlfriend Karla Giraldo in his Jackson Heights apartment in Dec. 2008. Giraldo urged area voters in a video she posted to YouTube to support her boyfriend.

This plea thankfully fell on deaf ears.
