 Today, Monserrate. Tomorow...

Councilman Hiram Monserrate, who lost a state senate race by 247-votes, called on the state Board of Elections to investigate allegations that about 200 voters in his district were unjustly prevented from voting during the primary.

And Assemblyman Jose Peralta, who did not support Monserrate during that race, just joined the councilman and other electeds on the City Hall steps to call for an investigation, because, he said, “Today, it was the people that Councilman Monserrate registered. Tomorrow, it can be the people that Assemblyman Peralta registers.”
