Senator Embezzels From Own Clinic
New York state senator Pedro Espada who was the Senate’s Democratic leader and his son Pedro Gautier Espada have pleaded not guilty in Brooklyn federal court to charges they embezzled more than $500,000 from their New York City health clinic.
Federal and state authorities have accused the the senator and his son of going on a spending spree. The problem is this clinic is a federally funded not-for-profit in the Bronx known as Soundview, which the senator founded 30 years ago. Senator Espada was the Senate majority leader, and has been stripped of his position after the indictment was released.
What kind of sentence do you think he will get if convicted. He’s a state senator, even if he gets a prison sentence it will be somewhere with a nine hole golf course. This is exactly the the thing Americans are sick of, this guy milked the tax payers and since the clinic has been open for 30 yrs does anyone actually believe that this is the first time he stole money from the federally funded clinic. That was tax payer money, your money, my money.
