Monserrate Expulsion & how they voted. Thank/Reprimand Your Senator based on votes

I just wanted to mention again how grateful I am of NOW-NYS and NOW-NYS President Marcia Pappas.  It was their leadership for over ONE year that made Monserrate's expulsion possible.  NOW-NYS sent out petitions, urged all of us to call/ writeemail, visited the lawmakers personally, delivered letters, and brought media attention to the cause.  Please find here some examples:
NOW-NYS was the first on the case, and relentlessly pursued expulsion for over one year.  Thank you Marcia Pappas and NOW-NYS!
