Senator Kevin Parker Continues to Disgrace Brooklyn

Just when you thought things could not get any stranger in the state Capitol, state Sen. Kevin Parker is once again in the news– this time for reportedly unloading on a Senate colleague over the ouster of Sen. Hiram Monserrate.

State Sen. Kevin Parker, a Brooklyn Democrat with a history of anger management issues, “charged” at Sen. Diane Savino of Staten Island during a heated closed-door meeting on Tuesday, Senate sources told the New York Daily News.

Parker not only reportedly dropped numerous ”F-bombs” — but also tossed a “B” word in while hollering at Savino, a Democrat and former labor leader in New York City. The report quoted one senator who said an enraged Parker ”went a little ballistic, swearing and screaming that the Republicans have no right to dictate what goes on in our house.”

It’s not every day that a politician with a history of rage reportedy lunges at a female senator — all while defending another senator convicted of assaulting his girlfriend.

And Parker’s past already included a 2005 misdemeanor assault arrest for allegedly punching a traffic agent over a parking ticket in Brooklyn. The charges were dropped when he enrolled in an anger management counseling.

Parker was later charged in 2009 with assaulting a newspaper photographer in Brooklyn
There have been other dust-ups, including one in February 2005 when Parker cornered a reporter from a New York City tabloid livid over a story that ran that day. Parker walked away from the confrontation in the state Capitol with the help of another lawmaker - former state Sen. Ada Smith, whose well-documented history included a conviction herself of throwing hot coffee at an aide.
