With 4 Days Left to Pass Marriage, NY Senate Now Evenly Split Among Elected Jerks

Like any guy who professes to play for both teams, New York State Sen. Hiram Monserrate swapped alliances again yesterday. After jumping to the Republican side last week, the Democratic senator re-swore his allegiance to the Democrats, leaving Democrat Pedro Espada Jr. still with the Republicans — and giving the Senate an even 31-31 split with just four days left in the legislative session. Sorry, gay marriage.
