FBI raids clinic office linked to Bronx Senator

New York Times, April 22, 2010

Federal and New York state investigators raided the Bronx, NY, offices of the Soundview HealthCare Network, seeking records as part of a joint investigation into the business and political activities of the Senate majority leader, Pedro Espada Jr. The raid came one day after Attorney General Andrew M. Cuomo filed a broad civil lawsuit against Espada, a Bronx Democrat, and 19 other current and former Soundview officials, accusing them of "looting" at least $14 million from the nonprofit organization to pay for Mr. Espada's personal and campaign expenses.
