A former city comptroller was hit Thursday with a hefty fine in connection with his 2013 run for mayor.
The campaign board slapped John Liu with $26,000 in campaign finance fines in connection with a straw donor scandal.
This comes after Liu's campaign treasurer and a campaign fundraiser were convicted of federal fraud charges.
They were accused of concocting a phony donor scheme to get Liu public matching funds.
Liu never received the funds, but the board determined that his campaign should be penalized for fraud.
