From the NY Post:
The check is most definitely not in the mail.
Comptroller John Liu says he’ll fight to the bitter end before paying $527,400 in fines for illegally attaching 7,032 campaign posters to city property in 2009.
“These tickets were issued, believe it or not, two years after the election,” Liu said on the Zev Brenner radio show Tuesday night. “I think it’s unfair . . . and we’re going to use every channel, every venue of due process, that I’m entitled to. How many cases have you heard of where tickets were issued two years after the election?”
Liu has been battling the summonses for nearly three years.
He has exhausted all appeals at the administrative level and has until the end of the month to file yet another challenge in state Supreme Court.
But at no point has the comptroller denied that his campaign violated the law. In fact, on the radio show, he admitted plastering the city with the posters in 2009.
“During the campaign I, like pretty much every other campaign in the city, put up a lot of posters to let people know there was an election going on,” he said.
