Finally

Former State Senator Hiram Monserrate speaks with the press outside of a senior citizens' center in Corona on Tuesday morning. Monserrate, who was expelled by the State Senate in February because of a misdemeanor assault conviction, lost a special election to Assembly Member Jose Peralta by more than 30 percentage points.

Moments before, Monserrate had walked into the polling station, ignoring election rules that prohibit candidates from campaigning within 100 feet of polling stations, and, as the New York Times reported, "walked in, shook hands with the men, hugged the women and danced salsa with students taking a class until the center’s director persuaded him to leave."
