Just what we needed this election season—former State Senator and convicted girlfriend slasher Hiram Monserrate! Monserrate is running for the 39th District seat, which was vacated by Jose Peralta when Peralta beat Monserrate in a special State Senate election in March. The Daily News says the disgraced pol's petition had 823 valid signatures and got this quote: "I am extremely humbled by the tremendous amount of support that we received from the community during the petition drive. I look forward to making them and everyone in my community proud." He will be running against Francisco Moya, who says Monserrate and his supporters have harassed his. Hey, at least they weren't wielding broken glasses!
