Pedro Espada Thinks Albany Coup Worked Out Swimmingly


The State Senate doesn’t appear any closer to resolving the impasse that has paralyzed Albany for the past three weeks, but Senator Pedro Espada, whose defection on June 8 made it all possible, is apparently quite pleased. The power seizure that worked for about a day before throwing the chamber into chaos was “impeccable” and “absolutely mastermind,” he claims, while also pointing out that “no one has died.” Glass-half-full type of guy, that Espada.
