From the NY Post:
A federal probe into the campaign fund-raising operations for city Comptroller John Liu is now focused on the candidate himself, The Post has learned.
Federal officials, for their part, wouldn’t betray what they were specifically looking for after arresting Pan.
But now, more than a month later, it’s clear that G-men and federal prosecutors are going straight for the city’s chief fiscal officer.
Although his attorney declined to comment yesterday, Liu himself sounded more fatalistic than ever during a Chinatown appearance.
“Every additional day for me in office is another cherry on top,” Liu said during a hastily called news conference in which community leaders criticized the press and the feds for going after a man who has made Asian New Yorkers proud.
“It could all go away tomorrow, it could go on for many years, but I’m far past anything that I ever imagined growing up here in New York City,” Liu told supporters.
