Peralta Finds an Issue: Domestic Violence

One benefit of running against someone who has notable legal troubles is you don’t have to mention them by name in order to go on the offensive.

Assemblyman Peralta, an announced candidate for State Senate against Hiram Monserrate, recently called for the creation of a domestic violence task force, citing a recent murder of a woman and her son in his district. Politically, it’s a potent issue, since Monserrate was recently found guilty of a misdemeanor assault agsinst his girlfriend.

In a press release this week, Peralta’s office noted, “Recent cases of domestic violence in the news are giving the perception that abusers keep dodging the legal system until it eventually leads to the victim’s death.” Peralta Finds an Issue: Domestic Violence
