From the NY Post:
New York City's comptroller-elect was swindled by an ex-staffer who tricked his way into his boss' bank account to the tune of nearly $4,000, cops said yesterday.
City Councilman John Liu (D-Queens), who takes control of the city's purse strings next month, was allegedly ripped off by a campaign canvasser who got his hands on the pol's personal information and banking details.
Cops said Lawrence Sessoms, 24, from Brooklyn, phoned in three payments on his AT&T phone bill pretending to be Liu.
It left a $3,919 hole in Liu's campaign account.
