Awful New York state senator Pedro Espada, known for suckling shamelessly at the public teat, has been indicted (along with his son) for embezzling brazenly from a health care network he controlled. An example, you ask?

Well, just for example:

Money from the same subsidiary paid for a ghostwriter to work on his personal book project and to service the air-conditioning system at his Mamaroneck home, according to the indictment...
Prosecutors also charge that the elder Espada used a Soundview corporate American Express card to pay for personal expenses. Among the charges was more than $100,000 worth of meals for him and his family, window treatments for his home and tickets to Broadway shows and sporting events.

Here's a problem you can't just "throw money" at, Espada, haha. But seriously, what a crook, this guy.
