I thought this article was interesting: http://www.observer.com/2010/politics/monserrate-probably-cant-get-peraltas-assembly-seat

It is indeed an interesting article, but I'm not so sure its prediction is accurate. In what could be a 3 way (or more???) Democratic primary in a district where HM got 27% of the vote in a general election, the split of a much smaller amount of people (Registered Democrats) might turn out in HM's favor. And that's a sad and scary thought.

Let's just pray that we don't have to face any future elections with HM as a candidate.
Enough is enough.
It's time to move on and work for quality government.
We deserve it.

Let's all hope that HM doesn't want to face humiliation and defeat again. Let him go away and hide his face in disgrace.

I'm sorry to say that today the Daily News broke out with this story: http://www.nydailynews.com/news/2010/03/18/2010-03-18_its_not_over_yet__hiram_may_seek_assembly_seat.html

I agree, it is a very scary thought!

i'd hate to see mr. pu-folkes and mr. moya split the sane person vote to the point that inmate number [fill in the blank] could sneak in.....

Maybe if they schedule the election the same day as something crazy people like ... to limit their participation?

Say the opening of a Barry Manilow only karioke bar?

This is slightly off topic, but does anybody know if he is or will be entitled to a pension from the state or the city, having been a member of the city council and the state senate?  I hate the idea of my tax dollars going to support this guy.

Obviously he's going to run for something.  It's not like he has any employable skills.  What is he going to do, go back to being a cop?  He was deemed mentally unfit, right?  What business owner or company would hire him for anything?
