Court Convicts Two Former Aides to NY Mayoral Candidate Liu

Monday, May 6th, 2013

Two former associates of New York Democratic mayoral candidate John Liu were convicted in an illegal campaign fundraising scheme uncovered in an FBI investigation, according to CBS New York.

Jurors heard secretly recorded tapes that prosecutors said showed Liu’s two associates, Jia “Jenny” Hou and Xing “Oliver” Wu Pan, plotted to cheat the city out of campaign matching funds and then lied about it.

An FBI agent posed as a potential donor to the campaign, offering $16,000.

The donation was to be much larger than the law allows if the campaign wants to get matching funds from the city.

Jurors found with that, the plot was hatched to use straw donors to conceal the source of the large illegal donation.

Prosecutors charged that coded language was used by Pan and Hou to make sure that Liu knew the source of the money.

Deputy Controller Simcha Felder told Hamodia that he’s running for State Senate on the Democratic line in the new Orthodox Jewish-majority district in Brooklyn. He had also been wooed by the Republican party.

Felder is abandoning the city Controller John Liu, whose campaign finances are under federal investigation.

In February, Liu lost the services of his other second in command, Eric Eve.

“I look forward, God willing, to the opportunity to once again serve the community and the people of New York State,” Felder told Hamodia.
