Liu pals indicted; "support rally" planned

From the Daily News:

Embattled Controller John Liu’s former campaign treasurer, Jia (Jenny) Hou, was named in an indictment with fund-raiser Xing Wu (Oliver) Pan.

Pan was busted in November for trying to get around campaign contribution limits by rounding up straw donors to give more than $13,000 to Liu’s mayoral campaign.

Hou, 25, was arrested in February and accused of taking part in the same scheme by directing at least 40 fraudulent donations to the campaign.

The two cases were joined on Thursday.

Hou was already arraigned on charges of conspiracy to commit wire fraud, attempting to commit wire fraud and obstruction of justice. Each charge carries a maximum of 20 years in prison.

The new indictment added one charge of making a false statement, which carries an additional five years in jail.

From the NY Post:

City Comptroller John Liu’s former campaign treasurer has been hit with a new charge of lying to the FBI during its probe of contributions to the embattled mayoral contender.

Jia “Jenny” Hou allegedly made the bogus statements on Feb. 27, one day before she was busted on charges of scheming to funnel illegal donations to Liu’s campaign.

Hou pretended that a Jan. 17 report she filed with the city Campaign Finance Board included all campaign-contribution bundlers “and [that] no one was left off,” according to a new indictment of fund-raiser Xing Wu “Oliver” Pan.

Hou also falsely claimed she had turned over “all responsive documents” after checking “every single e-mail in her e-mail account,” the Manhattan federal court filing says.

From Capital Tonight:

A reader forwarded an email invite sent by veteran Democratic consultant Bill Lynch to a “support” rally being held Monday for embattled NYC Comptroller John Liu “in light of recent investigations.”

The event is being held at a church, and Lynch is careful to note that this is NOT a campaign event, nor an effort to secure endorsements, but merely a moment to demonstrate general support for the comptroller as he battles for his political life.

Lynch’s firm, Bill Lynch Associates, served as the general consultant for Liu’s successful 2009 run for comptroller.

Liu has refused to pull the plug on his aspirations to run for NYC mayor in 2013, despite the fact that a top campaign aide was arrested in February on allegations of campaign finance fraud and a bundler was indicted on charges of conspiracy and wire fraud.

It will be interesting – not to mention telling – to see who shows up Monday.

Keep the pressure on Jenny until she turns on John Liu. When will she stop protecting him?

Gee...another charge is added.
Now Jenny is a lying Taiwanese crook.

So what else is new?

These Taiwanese must all be related
to that original bad Taiwanese seed...Tommy Huang.

Or else it's the water in Taipei that turns their genes crooked.

Jenny girl is not protecting Liu.

If she opens up her mouth'
the tongs will whack her.

The same goes for Johnny boy.

The code of silence must prevail in those secret Asiatic societies just like it does in the Italian mafia.

Bill Lynch
can hold all the rallies he wants.

Liu's political career is over.
He certainly wont be our next mayor.

Billy boy can fly everyone in from Taipei to paper the house.

It wont make
a damn bit of difference.

You do not lie to the FBI...period!

They'll all go down...
one from column "A" and two from column "B".

If any of these crooks rat out
(the man behind the scenes)
the mysterious "Mr. Big"...
they'll wind up sliced 'n diced...
and served up in some Chinatown, Flushing, Sunset Park
dim sum parlors.

No...I'd keep silent too...
and take my full rap in jail.

Bubba up your ass is better than a meat cleaver in the back.

Notice how
that sleazebag Ackerman has just bowed out of seeking another term in office...just before the feds
get around to asking him some pointed questions.

That is certainly no coincidence.

I suppose this way he cuts his losses and saves his pension.

Now liu and his pals have got to hide in a church to hold their rally.

I'll bet the "poor box" gets filled with money to help pay Johnny boy's legal expenses.

These Taiwanese political termites are chewing up American democracy.

Deport them to mainland China....
NOT TAIWAN....and let the Commies take care of them.

Why should we have to pay for their incarceration?

Ughly photo!

It looks like she's got "fever sores" around her mouth
(or he's got 5 o'clock shadow).

I wouldn't want to give her a hickey and wind up getting infected with something or other.

Hey Gramps - reading through your writings is like trying to go from 1 to 100 on a connect-the-dots puzzle by skipping the other numbers. There's a lot in-between. Can we comment on the posting?

i will predict that many of JOHN LIU'S and IRRELEVANT LEFTIE'S fellow travelers in town for the MAY DAY communist /socialist parade will visit and support the Comptroller at his church rally.

do you think Al,,Jesse,Charlie, John Choe ,S.E.I.U. union officers and the working party donors can skip this gathering ?

1) I'm working on Tuesday, Gramps. I have a wife and family to support and a mortgage to pay. Beyond that, I am not now, nor have I ever been. You know the rest of the drill.

2) I don't care about those other guys. They're not my allies.

3) You seem to have a lot of time on your hands to dream up stuff like this. Why don't you go and counter-picket?
