Gerson Borrero Slams Diaz, Jr. on Endorsement
Former Editor and now writer for El Diario, Gerson Borrero, takes great exception to the endorsement made by Bronx BP Ruben Diaz, Jr. of Gustavo Rivera. Not that he supports Pedro Espada, but in his blog called The Borrero Report, he points out that Diaz, Jr. is being a hypocrite when he criticizes Pedro Espada for many of the same deficiencies found in his own father, State Senator Ruben Diaz, Sr. Diaz, Jr. calls Mr. Rivera "a true Democrat who -- unlike the unfortunate incumbent Pedro Espada -- will not abandon the shared principles of both his party and the voters who sent him to Albany." It is interesting to note that Diaz Senior has endorsed Espada and was a key leader with Espada of the Gang of Four that threw Albany into chaos by threatening to side with the Republicans. Borrero states "it would be irresponsible for us to let Rubencito continue with this hypocrisy and dishonesty." He suggests that to if he judged his own father by the same standard as Espada he should endorse his father's opponent. Only in the Bronx my friends.
