Johnny having second thoughts about mayoral campaign
From the Huffington Post:
New York City Comptroller John Liu – a Democrat who had been widely viewed as a potential successor to Mayor Michael Bloomberg – said he plans to reassess whether to run for office in 2013 following the arrest of his campaign treasurer on Tuesday.
"We're going to sort through all this stuff and figure out what the next course of action will be," he said during an appearance hours after the arrest of the campaign worker.
He said he would continue to serve as the city's comptroller. "I have vigorously followed through on my responsibilities, and will continue to do so," he said.
He said he believed his campaign had acted properly at all times.
"But I am aware that the complaint suggests that there are instances where it's otherwise," he said, adding that both he and his office were cooperating with prosecutors.
