Co-op Residents Question Espada's Residence

Last night, while Bronx Democrats were bickering amongst themselves in Marina Del Rey, Pedro Espada, Jr., was busy trying to host a fundraiser for his state senate campaign to unseat embattled incumbent Efrain Gonzalez while defending himself against angry residents at a co-op where he recently purchased an apartment.

In a Youtube video sent to the Norwood News by Gonzalez's son Carlos, residents confront Espada in the lobby of the co-op, saying they don't appreciate him using their building to further his political ambitions. Two residents say they hadn't seen him around and that he only recently moved in furniture and a couple of air conditioners.

A shareholder at the co-op told us a similar story yesterday.

Gonzalez says the video was created by a volunteer for the Gonzalez campaign. The end of the video claims to show Espada's car parked outside of his other residence in Mamaroneck, though that can't be confirmed from watching it.

Espada was not at his campaign office to answer questions earlier today.
