Poor Pedro...If only he had done the party thing when Dems took the State Senate two years ago. If he had just voted in the majority instead of teaming with slasher Senator Hiram Monserrate in the 2009 GOP coup that faltered when Pedro "came home" in exchange for the title (but not the duties) of Majority Leader.
Senator Pedro Espada could have blended in...but he couldn't bring himself to be discreet.
A string of scandals, including non-residency and the doings of his health care company have emboldened party leaders to seek his expulsion from the party of Andrew Jackson, FDR, JFK, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama.
Democrats, who carefully shaped a mainstream image at their recent convention, know he needs to go...A primary is not a certain method in a district where folks might reelect Espada to send a message to The Man.
Dicker reports the Dems this week will seek removal from the party rolls....The Big Tent doesn't have room for this kind of embarassment.
A subsequent Liz posting says Bronx Democrats deny knowing about the ouster bid.
