Espada defects; GOP now the majority party

Some big news out of Albany.

According to The Times, State Senators Hiram Monserrate (Queens) and Pedro Espada have voted with the Republican Party to overthrow the Senate’s Democratic leadership, in a move that could end the Democrats brief control of the State Senate.

Liz Benjamin also has the story.

  1. I have never posted a comment before, but after reading article after article on Pedro Espada I can only come to one conclusion. Espada guilty or not is being discriminated against by the democratic party as well as the democratic controlled press . Charles Wrangle has been proven to be a tax cheat yet hearings have not been held to remove him . Maybe because he is 100% loyal to the democratic party . Also you have the congressman in Canarsie who was not a resident of the community but still ran for office and won . Espada who is willing to work with the republican party , is not only relentlessly attacked by the daily news with double full page articles on a daily basis. The democratic party has asked the DA’s to immediately prosecute Espada The democratic party has known most of the accusations made against Espada and did nothing . But now that he does not act like a drone he is an enemy of the party. Why have I not heard any comments from Hispanic leaders around the country, are they drones as well . Maybe they made a deal with the democratic party for total control in the Hispanic leadership or mabe they don’t have the nerve to confront democrats.
