Remember former state senator Pedro Espada? How he would always do these crazy things, like throw money at protesters and pay his janitors $1.70 an hour and paralyze state government for a while and possibly embezzle hundreds of thousands of dollars, and we'd all sigh and shake our heads say, "Oh Pedro." Well, he's still at it!
Ex-state Sen. Pedro Espada Jr. dramatically donned rosary beads at his embezzlement trial yesterday — as he accused prosecutors and an FBI agent of using the occult to affect the jury’s deliberations.
“We’re in the homestretch, and so we’re pulling it [the rosary] out because we know that the prosecutors are sitting in a certain seating arrangement that I recognize as being a certain ritual,” Espada bizarrely told reporters after placing the religious beads around his neck in front of Brooklyn federal court.
