Espada Walks Out Of CBS Interview

For Your Entertainment // Only in NY

When asked this weekend about whether he is really living in Westchester, State Senator Pedro Espada Jr. stormed off in the middle of Tv interview:

He got testy when reporter Marcia Kramer reminded him that when she approached him last year outside his Mamaroneck home, he donned an orange ski cap and held a baby in front of his face to hide from the camera before speeding off in a car driven by his wife.

“I was not hiding from anybody. I’ve owned that home since 1991,” he said. “This is not a mudslinging session, so I say. If you want to make it that, you can come hide in the bushes at my house and you repeat the same thing all over again. Human decency should prevail, even on this show.”

As the program went to a commercial break, he took off his microphone and walked out.

“Please direct me to the way out, please,” he said over the anchors’ requests to come back.
