Sworn in Senator despite being accused of domestic violence

Hiram Monserrate, a former police officer and councilman was sworn in Wednesday to be the new state senator in Albany, N.Y.
He is also under probation and is facing charges for assaulting his girlfriend who had to be taken to the hospital. Monserrate slashed his girlfriend's face with a piece of glass during a jealous rage which result in her needing 25 stitches! It comes to no surprise that his family was there, but of course his girlfriend was absent.

How can a man like this be taking office? I would think the women in Albany would have been up in arms and protesting his new senate position.

If he was sworn in, you have to question, what kind of people are representing us in congress?

Yesterday was a SAD day for women in general and especially for abused women.
