Pedro Espada Math

ALBANY—All voters are created equal, but some voters are more equal than others.
So says State Senator Pedro Espada Jr., who after a restraining order was dropped against him yesterday has been claiming he has the power to cast an extra, tie-breaking vote in the 31-31 State Senate because the president pro tempore is the acting lieutenant governor. Now, he claims that he has the power to vote twice to establish a quorum.
“I didn’t say twice. I said that I could cast a vote as senator, and I could cast a vote as acting lieutenant governor. I didn’t make that up,” he said.
