Besides getting some great footage of State Senate Majority Leader Pedro Espada Jr. essentially telling reporters to stop looking into his questionable activities, PolitickerNY's Azi Paybarah has a slideshow from yesterday's State Senators-against-Mayor Bloomberg event titled, "Anatomy of a Bloomberg-Bashing Press Event." Our favorites (and by favorites, we mean the photos and captions that make us cry): Sen. Espada saying, "Where on earth do you get the opportunity to spend hundreds of millions of dollars and not have the public know where its tax dollars are going?" (and Espada knows about pork) and Sen. Ruben Diaz Sr. proclaiming, "You can call us crazy. You can call us dumb. You can call us anything you want. It's not working. It is not working."
