Ex-State Sen. Hiram Monserrate Working At Queens Pizzeria

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) -- A New York lawmaker expelled from the state Senate after a domestic incident was serving up pizza in his former district.

The New York Post reports that Hiram Monserrate was working at Papaya Pizza in Corona, Queens.

The former politician told the paper he was "consulting and assisting in the management" of the new restaurant.

The Post said the business was registered with the Department of State last November. The address on the paperwork is that of Monserrate's mother's home in Queens.

Monserrate was expelled from the Senate after his conviction on misdemeanor reckless assault. He was acquitted of felony assault.
