Espada Wants an IG Probe of His Investigators, IG Says No

ALBANY—The charges against him are selectively pursued, State Senator Pedro Espada Jr. insisted.
The Daily News reported this morning that Bronx District Attorney Robert Johnson has subpoenaed his legislative records dating back to 1993. Last night, Espada’s press aide put out an announcement confirming the investigation, and vowing he would file a complaint with State Inspector General Joseph Fisch for “prosecutorial misconduct and selective prosecution.”
“In 2000, it took a Bronx jury all of 15 minutes of deliberation, without me even producing a single witness, to throw out Mr. Johnson’s case because the jury said the allegations we re transparently politically motivated,” Espada said in his statement.
