Receipts show that former New York State Sen. Pedro Espada Jr. had a taxpayer-funded health clinic pick up the $15,000 bill for his family's stay at a luxury resort in Puerto Rico.
Espada is standing trial in Brooklyn on charges that he looted around a half-million dollars from the nonprofit Soundview Healthcare Network.
Records introduced at his trial Friday showed that Espada racked up huge bills on the clinic's credit card during a 2008 stay at the El San Juan Hotel and Casino.
The charges included $9,000 for lodging, a $478 meal at The Palm restaurant, another $380 bill at a Japanese restaurant and $390 in minibar charges.
Espada founded and controlled Soundview Healthcare, but prosecutors say that didn't give him the right to loot the charity.
