Monserrate Won’t Let Rules Stop Him from Campaigning

It’s election day, and, surprise, Senate candidate Hiram Monserrate is in trouble.

From City Room:

About a half hour later, Mr. Monserrate’s sound truck arrived outside another polling site at Public School 89 in Jackson Heights. They were followed by two vans with his name on them.

The vehicles parked in front of the school, and Mr. Monserrate stepped out to talk to voters.

A poll worker requested that the vans be moved. Mr. Monserrate denied that the vans were working on his behalf and continued to speak with voters.

When the poll worker confronted Mr. Monserrate, he said angrily, “Buzz off, man. Buzz off. Go shave, get a haircut and get lost. Who are you to tell me who I can and can’t talk to?”
