The case against John Liu's campaign treasurer was combined with the case against one of John Liu's fund-raisers. They'll both appear in court on Tuesday.
Liu hasn't been charged with anything but, David Chen of the New York Times writes, the "charges filed against Hou suggest that she was taking instructions from Liu as she was carrying out the allegedly fraudulent fund-raising scheme."
One day before the Hou and Pan court appearance, Liu's campaign adviser Bill Lynch is organizing a non-campaign, non-endorsement rally for the embattled comptroller, according to an invite Celeste Katz obtained.
