Andrew Cuomo Subpoenas E-mails, Etc. in Pedro Espada Investigation
Espada pledges his full cooperation with the investigation, which is believed to concern Espada's use of Soundview in his political campaigns, though he adds, "I am not going to be someone's political piñata here."
In 2008 our own John DeSio found Espada at a Soundview-sponsored "health fair" at which Espada campaign materials were handed out. Other Soundview personnel have been convicted of diverting company funds to Espada campaigns in the past, but so far the senator himself has avoided such a fate.
