Violent, Woman-Beating Democrat: I'm Like Slain Civil Rights Workers or Something

You've been found guilty of slashing your girlfriend's face with a beer bottle, you refuse to go away, your own party is so inept they've not even booted you from office so now what do you do? Why, compare your plight with that of murdered civil rights workers.

Man, is this guy shameless.
Convicted girlfriend beater Hiram Monserrate on Sunday compared himself to murdered civil rights workers as he stepped up the fight to keep his state Senate seat.

Claiming he was targeted because he is Latino, Monserrate announced that civil rights lawyers Norman Siegel and Steve Hyman would take his case.

"Students from the college that I went to died to help African-Americans have the right to vote," Monserrate said. "Today, the Senate would seek to push back the clock and discredit the major movement that occurred here in the United States to protect the rights of all Americans."
Monserrate was "targeted" becasue he was caught on video throwing a beating on his girlfriedn who was desperately trying to flee after he ripped her face open with a broken beer bottle. The fact he's Latino has nothing to do with it.
Monserrate (D-Queens), who last summer likened himself to Jesus Christ, is fighting expulsion from the Senate after his October misdemeanor assault conviction for abusing girlfriend Karla Giraldo.

A Senate committee headed by Sen. Eric Schneiderman (D-Manhattan) found Monserrate unremorseful and recommended the Senate either expel or censure him.

Monserrate has vowed to fight expulsion with a lawsuit.
I expect these cowardly Democrats to censure him, as if that means anything.
Monserrate somewhat mischaracterized history when he claimed four Queens College students died in the 1964 freedom rides. Three civil rights workers were killed during the rides, only one of whom had attended Queens College, his alma mater.

Monserrate insisted the students died to defend the right of voters to keep him in office.
So some students murdered 46 years ago somehow magically were transformed back in time to preserve the right of a vicious woman-beater to remain in office?
