State Senate's Real Reason for Expulsion

The New York Times helps explain why the State Senate appeared actually to do the right thing by expelling Hiram Monseratte immediately.   It was really payback by both sides for Monseratte's double-crossing each in last summer's comic-opera "coup" and counter-coup for control of the State Senate.

It is one thing to cut a woman’s face with a broken glass, drag her through a hallway and then drive her, bleeding profusely, past several hospitals to an emergency room far enough away from home where no one would be likely to recognize him.

It is quite another thing for a politician to be bought and paid for, and then not to stay bought.
