Pedro Espada, Jr

29 Apr

When they make the biopic of Pedro Espada, Jr. – the most unapologetically, blatantly corrupt and petulant politician this side of Louisiana – they will quite obviously have to retain the services of Joe Pesci to play Mr. Espada.

Just watch this report from YNN and look at Espada’s body habitus and choice of suits.  If that’s not Tommy DeVito (Goodfellas), I don’t know who is.

    Hey, you hit the nail on the head! Joe Pesci will be perfect as Espada. Looks, body type and manner of speaking match perfectly. And while we are on the subject, why does Espada needs a senate majority office here in Buffalo, in the state office building?. There are hundreds of thousands of dollars being wasted on salaries and those people are doing nothing to earn the money. What is former Grassroots President and former Deputy Commissioner of the Board of Elections, doing to earn his $70,000.00 plus salary? How many people work there, three or four? Espada’s time in the state senate is limited; Gov. Paterson needs to abolish the do-nothing Buffalo office and spend that money to balance the budget.

      There are actually (2) Senate Majority offices. One led by the former president of Grassroots with ties to Albany’s Smith and Sampson that is staffed by 4 people. This is the office Baby Joe Mesi briefly headed. The other Senate Majority office that is alligned with Espada employs 2 full time and 2 part time staffers including none other than G.Steven Pigeon.
