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

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."
