The heated rhetoric that characterized the campaign carried over into Election Day. Outside a polling station at Public School 127 in East Elmhurst, a supporter of Mr. Peralta taunted a Monserrate supporter, calling Mr. Monserrate a “wife beater.” The supporter fired back, “It wasn’t his wife.” (Mr. Monserrate was convicted in October of misdemeanor assault after dragging his companion, Karla Giraldo, through the lobby of his apartment building during an argument. On Monday, Ms. Giraldo lent him her support in a video posted on YouTube.)And that, indeed, was the best defense that could be made for Hiram Monserrate.
Fair. Balanced. American.
