From the NY Post:
Embattled city Comptroller John Liu’s campaign treasury “is turning into a legal-defense fund.”
Liu’s campaign has spent more than $100,000 on lawyers and legal fees so far this year — more than he raised in campaign contributions.
Liu only raised $82,305 from Jan. 1 through March 25.
And the new report shows that Liu spent more than twice what he raised during the period — $162,354.92.
The anemic fund-raising and ballooning legal bills come as Liu and his campaign operation face a federal criminal probe of their fund-raising activities.
