From the NY Post:
Comptroller John Liu’s former financial fixer is tight with the hard-line Chinese party boss who busted blind dissident Chen Guangcheng, anti-government protesters in New York alleged.
They said Liu’s ex-campaign treasurer Jia “Jenny” Hou, who’s facing federal fraud charges and is accused of lying to the FBI, played host to the official’s top deputy when his rep visited the city in January.
The boss, security czar Zhou Yongkang, is reportedly on the hot seat in China for his handling of Chen, a human-rights lawyer who escaped house arrest and sought asylum at the US Embassy in Beijing.
Chen claims on a YouTube video that is was Zhou who arrested, beat and interrogated him.
Zhou’s deputy came to the city on Jan. 21, when he and Hou presented an award to a group that’s battled the Falun Gong, a religious and resistance movement, the protesters said.
They said the deputy, Yibao Zhu, bunked with Hou’s family on Long Island in a home owned by her rich father, Jian Li “Peter” Hou.
“This official was the personal guest for two weeks at Hou’s home while in New York,” said the Falun Dafa Information Center, which represents resistance members in New York.
