Video: Protesters Storm Hiram Monserrate Holiday Party, Yell About Broken Bottle, Gay Marriage
And what would the holidays be without Hiram Monserrate? The state senator had a Christmas party, and marriage equality activists busted in on it with cries of "Hiram Monserrate believes marriage should be between one man, one woman, and a broken bottle!" alluding to his assault conviction and anti-gay-marriage vote in Albany this month.
Monserrate Chief of Staff Wayne Mahlke makes a guest appearance, revealing in a shaky voice that he disagrees with the senator on the issue. ¡Feliz Navidad!
