Group Targets Espada In New Mailer


The New Roosevelt Initiative is continuing its campaign to oust embattled Sen. Pedro Espada in next month’s Democratic primary, putting out this mailer today that knocks the Bronx senator and calls on voters to back his primary foe Gustavo Rivera.

The group, led by Democratic activist Bill Samuels, has made Espada their top target heading into the Sept. 14 primary.

The mailer hits on Espada’s main troubles — Attorney General Andrew Cuomo’s investigation into Espada allegedly looting $14 million from his health-care clinic, his lead role in last year’s Senate coup and his brief refusal to return to Albany earlier this month to pass the budget.
