The time has come. After being found guilty of misdemeanor assault after slashing his girlfriend in the face last December, state Sen. Hiram Monserrate will be sentenced tomorrow. Monserrate faces up to a year in jail for his misdemeanor, and the State Senate is currently deciding whether it has the authority to expel Monserrate for his crime. The Queens Democratic Party has already endorsed state Assemblyman Jose Peralta for the 2010 Democratic primary for Monserrate’s seat. Well, at least his girlfriend wants to continue their "intimate relationship."
