Pedro Espada Jr., who represents The Bronx but actually lives in tony Mamaroneck -- is a serial party-switcher who's implicated in state-funding shenanigans involving his nonprofit health-care company.
Hiram Monserrate of Queens was indicted for allegedly slashing his girlfriend in the face with a broken glass.
Espada has a long history of being a renegade and displaying party disloyalty. Three workers at a firm he runs, the Soundview Health Care Network, pleaded guilty in 2005 to diverting $30,000 from programs for family care and AIDS treatment to his political campaign. He was not charged.
Earlier, Espada was caught red-handed attempting to steer $745,000 in grants to his outfit.
In 1998, Espada was accused of attempting to direct $260,000 in Medicaid funds from his firm to his political campaign. He was acquitted of the charges.
Monserrate, a former city councilman and ex-cop who had a stormy relationship with the NYPD, was charged with six counts of assaulting his girlfriend, Karla Giraldo. She needed 20 stitches over her left eye.
