The situation in the New York Senate just keeps getting stranger. From the New York Times:ALBANY -- The coalition that joined two Democrats with 30 Republicans and took control of the State Senate earlier this week was in danger of collapsing on Thursday as one of the Democrats walked out of the Senate chamber, saying he needed more time to hold discussions with his colleagues.\
Hiram Monserrate, a Queens Democrat, held the Capitol in suspense as he refused to say whether he would support the coalition's current leadership.
Mr. Monserrate's absence from the chamber deprived Republicans of a quorum, forcing them to adjourn just a few minutes after they called the session to order. As he was walking out of the chamber, a Republican staff member followed him out and pleaded with him, saying, "Senator, we need you back in there."
