Pedro Espada Jr. Labels Cuomo 'The Prince Of Darkness,' Says Attorney General Should Meet Him 'Man To Man' (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

State Senate Majority Leader Pedro Espada took to the airwaves today to defend himself against charges that he looted $14 million from a state-funded clinic (and of course that he spent $20K on sushi).

Appearing on Good Day New York, Espada called the investigation a "politically-motivated witch hunt" and labeled Attorney General Andrew Cuomo "the Prince of Darkness."

Espada also taunted Cuomo, telling him to "come on out" and meet him "man to man."
