New York City Comptroller John Liu’s multiplying political misfortunes may prove to be a serendipitous blessing for America. According to reports from various New York media outlets — most of which, until recently, were singing his praises — additional arrests and indictments of Liu’s donors and campaign staff may be coming soon. As reported previously in The New American (seehere, here, and here ), Liu (left) has suffered a series of stinging blows, with his top campaign financiers being arrested for funneling illegal cash into Liu’s coffers through fraudulent “straw donors.”
Liu, a Democrat and the first Asian-American to win major elective office in New York, was once the golden boy of Manhattan politics. But he is quickly becoming a political pariah, his hopes for becoming mayor of one of the planet’s most important cities now growing less likely with each passing day — and each new scandal.
