Ex-Senator Now Serving Up Slices At Queens Pizzeria

Hiram Monserrate is serving the public again -- one slice at a time.

The shamed former state senator is getting rid of his aggression these days by pounding the dough at a pizza shop in Queens.

A year after he was booted from Albany on charges he beat and slashed his girlfriend, Monserrate is working the counter at Papaya Pizza, a 2-month-old, $1.25-a-slice pizza joint located in his old Corona campaign headquarters.
