From CBS 2:
Sources tell CBS 2 HD that federal prosecutors are getting ready to indict the embattled Bronx politician on a raft of charges relating to his use of money from his Soundview healthcare empire for his personal and political use.
One potential charge is mail fraud, sources said.
As CBS 2 HD first reported last summer, Espada sent out political mailings believed to have been paid for with money from the health clinic. The political mailings had the same postage permit number as the Soundview clinic -- reportedly a no-no.
But that's not all. The state Democratic Party is trying to give Espada the bum's rush. They want him out of the party. In part because, as CBS 2 HD first told you, he doesn't live in his Bronx district. He lives in Mamaroneck.
They don't want him out because he doesn't live in his district. They want him out because he is one of the gang of four that voted with the Republicans last year. Please get your facts straight.
