Ousted State Senator Hiram Monserrate is starting another effort to reclaim his old seat.
The Queens Democrat spent Monday gathering signatures for a petition to run in next month's special election.
This comes after a judge denied his request to block the Senate's expulsion and the upcoming election.
Monserrate was convicted of misdemeanor assault for dragging his girlfriend last year.
