In your April 26 issue the headline “Pay up or city will sell your tax lien” (multiple editions) paraphrased a quote by City Comptroller John Liu. What will this newspaper’s headline read about John Liu not paying up for over $500,000 he owes for violating the “no posting law” when his campaign posters were plastered all over the city? And, the monies he owes the New York Campaign Finance Committee for breaking the campaign finance law?
I don’t think he has the credibility to request any monies from a taxpayer until he pays his own debts.
Editor’s note: To answer the writer’s question, our most recent headlines about the Liu campaign controversies were “John Liu fundraiser indicted for fraud,” “Liu ‘reassesses’ after arrest made” and “An idea for John Liu.” That last was on an editorial; our “idea” was to stop allegedly violating the campaign finance laws.
