Queens Official Faces 40 Years for Election Fraud

MANHATTAN (CN) - Former New York state Sen. Hiram Monserrate pleaded guilty Friday to diverting more than $100,000 in city funds toward his failed 2006 election bid.

Monserrate had campaigned for the state Senate's 13th District while serving as a New York City councilman since 2002. After losing in 2006, he ran unopposed in 2008 but was expelled the following year after he was convicted of assaulting his girlfriend. Source: Courthouse News Service
