One of the Democrats who voted against marriage equality was Hiram Monserrate.
After Monserrate voted in Albany to protect the sanctity of marriage as it has occurred since biblical times, he had to rush down to New York City where he was sentenced for assaulting his girlfriend. He was convicted of dragging his bleeding girlfriend through his Queens apartment building last December.
Monserrate was sentenced to three years supervised probation and ordered into one year of counseling, 250 hours of community service and given a $1,000 fine.
There have been calls for his removal from the Senate. However, the heterosexual abuser currently remains in office where he can continue to safeguard the sanctity of marriage.
