Former NY Senator Hiram Monserrate Targets ‘Marriage-Destroying’, ‘Gay-Loving’ Opponent in Campaign Flyer


The special election next Tuesday for homophobe Hiram Monserrate's former NY senate seat between Monserrate and challenger Jose Peralta is intensifying.

Threatened by Tim Gill's Fight Back New York PAC, anti-gay Monserrate supporters have sent out the homophobic flyer you see above, the NYDN reports:

Hm  "The flyer says Peralta, who has the support of many gay leaders and groups, is the 'leading spokesperson for the gay community's [sic] in N.Y.C.' It says those groups 'are dedicated to destroying our way of life and creating same sex marriage.'

In a statement, Peralta shot back: 'This flyer is just another example of how Hiram Monserrate thrives on bullying and hate-mongering.'"

Monserrate is being laughed at for his remix of the well-known Obama "O" logo in his campaign materials (see inset, via

The Manhattan Young Democrats suggest a different approach:

    lol Really?

    Dude needs to pack it up and go back to elementary school. Or at least hire a 4th-grader to edit his grammar.

    You have to love America and NYS!! Only here could someone be “Expelled from the State Senate and then immediately run in a special election for the same seat a month later!! Where are the laws that protect the citizens from this form of abuse? Why expel the man and then allow him to run for the same seat again??? WTF

    @ALEXINBOSTON: As disgusting as the outcome would be, constituents still get to vote for whomever they want, even if it’s this idiot. As vile as he is, if they elect him, he’s not abusing them…they are masochistically abusing themselves.

    This is just outrageous. I am unfortunate enough to live in this guy’s (former) district. I have seen him march and press flesh in every Queens Pride Parade and Rally that has occurred during his tenure (his district is host to the festivities), and then go back up to Albany and vote against the very people that helped put him into office in the first place. In a district where the two biggest political interests are Latinos and Queers, I am confident in the mobilization of the latter, and hope that the wife-beating Macho will have his hat handed to him for once and for all next week.

    You can thank Charles Schumer,Helen Sears, Joseph Crowley and the NY State Democratic Party for this monstrosity. My district had been represented by a decent man, John Sabini. However, the powers-that-be decided that Mr. Sabini’s seat should be an “hispanic” seat. So, they pressured Mr. Sabini to not seek reelection to the NY Senate with a promise of a plum salaried job on the NY State payroll. At first, Sabini balked but Schumer started putting the screws to Sabini and point-blank told Sabini that if he ran for reelection, he (Sabini) would get NO support (financial or otherwise) from NY State Democrats. So, Sabini agreed. And, voila! Hiram Monserrate steps in and with backing from all the major Dems in NY State, wins the Senate race. Hiram Monserrate is an asshole, a first-class asshole. He is corrupt and everyone KNEW he was corrupt when they foisted him on my district. He has had other “domestic” issues in the past, as well as some, um, other types of abuse problems. The guy is a moral degenerate and I plan to vote on March 16 for Jose Peralta and I encourage anyone who lives in Elmhurst-Corona to do the same. Mr. Peralta is a very good friend to the LGBT community and a decent man. He has earned my respect and my vote.

    As for Hiram, mire pendejo asqueroso vayase al carajo comemierda.
