New York Senate Democrats Appall, But Do Not Surprise

This is crazy.

How badly did Democrats in Albany want to lure turncoat senator Pedro Espada Jr. back to their side? Well, we know they crowned him majority leader of the Senate. Now, word is coming in that they put his son, Pedro G. Espada, on the Senate payroll. The son, a former Bronx assemblyman and City Council member who was voted out of office twice, started last week as “deputy director of intergovernmental relations,” a $120,000-a-year job, according to Austin Shafran, a Senate spokesman. He’s not replacing anybody; it’s a newly created position.

There are a lot of things I could say. I think they can all go without saying.
