“In light of Senator Pedro Espada’s recurring failure to appropriately file complete campaign finance records, I have instructed Senator Espada that he has one week to file his campaign committee with the State Board of Elections, as well as submit a written payment plan with a significant down payment toward past debt. Failure to comply with any of these instructions will result in immediate action against Senator Espada.”
