From the NY Post:
The New York State Democratic Party denied embattled city Comptroller John Liu a slot to attend the 2012 convention in Charlotte, NC, this summer to nominate President Obama for re-election, The Post has learned.
The federal criminal probe of Liu’s campagn finances played a role in the decision not to name the comptroller as an at-large delegate, sources said.
“It certainly didn’t help,” said one party insider.
A Liu spokesman confirmed he was frozen out.
“John is heartbroken that he won’t be able to help renominate President Obama, but he will continue to campaign vigorously for his re-election in every way possible,” said Liu campaign spokesman George Arzt.
Gov. Cuomo had a say in who was named delegates, and who wasn’t.
