Espada aide had issues

From the NY Times:

Pedro Espada Jr., the majority leader of the State Senate who is already at odds with tenant advocacy groups, appointed a new deputy chief of staff last month who in recent years managed dozens of low-income buildings with chronic housing code violations — even after state regulators revoked his real estate broker’s license in 2004, citing “gross untrustworthiness” after he failed to return deposits to would-be renters.

Mr. Espada said he was unaware of the record of the aide, Onix A. Sosa, as a property manager until he was asked about it by The New York Times on Monday. After a discussion with Mr. Sosa, Mr. Espada fired him from his $60,000-a-year job. (Also see The New York Post.)

The calibre of public servants, declining each year, now are noticably going down yearly.

At this point, even the most stupid of the electorate out there will want a change.

"... had issues."

Excellent writing, as usual... nice and specific.

Yes, because being "nice and specific" in the title means you have to actually read the post. Oh, the humanity!
