Xing Wu Pan, left, and Jia “Jenny” Hou were at Federal District Court in Manhattan Monday, where they faced a new indictment in connection with alleged financial wrongdoing while working with the campaign of City Comptroller and Democratic mayoral hopeful John Liu.

Hou, Liu’s former campaign treasurer, and Pan, a fundraiser for Liu, are charged with participating in a scheme to use straw and fictitious donors in order to skirt campaign finance laws.

Hou also is being investigated for lying to the FBI in order to thwart their investigation.

Liu is not accused of any crimes.

Both are due back in court on July 10.
