Election 2010: Indictments galore & the ghost of Espada still in the chambers
It can’t get anymore politically embarrassing for some when the indictments possibly come down from the state inspector general report last week on the process of awarding the Aqueduct racino contract. Democratic Conference Leader John Sampson, Senate President Malcolm Smith, Senator Eric Adams and others involved in the scandal. The findings in the report referred to ” U.S. attorney’s office, Manhattan DA Cy Vance Jr. and the Legislative Ethics Commission,” as reported in the NYdaily news.
And the Legislative Ethics Commission started investigating the hiring of Pedro G. Espada son of the former Majority leader Pedro Espada, Jr., for a position he resigned from last August.
The indictments might extend to Buffalo as well.
