Senator Ruben Diaz to Senate Purists: “What Are Your Plans for Senator Kevin Parker?”
New York State Senator Reverend Ruben Diaz (D-Bronx) issued the following remarks today in response to news reports that Senator Kevin Parker has been found guilty of two misdemeanors.
“I’d like to know if my colleagues in the New York State Senate – especially those who consider themselves purists – plan to do to something to Senator Kevin Parker now that he has been convicted of two misdemeanors. Will Senators Schneiderman, Breslin, Savino, Liz Kruger, and others rally for justice twice as loud as they did when Hiram Monserrate was found guilty of one misdemeanor?
Will Senator Schneiderman be consistent and show us what a true hero he thinks he is by starting the same kind of Senate action he organized to kick Hiram Monserrate out for his one misdemeanor?”
I’d like to know what their plans are now.”
