State Senators Nearly Have Real Political Brawl Over Monserrate Vote

A heated exchange took place at last night's closed-door Senate Democratic conference between Sens. Diane Savino, Kevin Parker and Jeff Klein resulted in a stand-off between the two male lawmakers, Senate sources confirm.

Sources who witnessed the exchange said Parker, who has a history of hot-temperedness, "charged" Savino while she was reviewing the findings of the select committee report on Monserrate for her colleagues.
