One of Chinatown’s most influential organizations, the Chinese Consolidated Benevolent Association, is organizing a “solidarity rally” for John Liu.
Just yesterday, Liu’s mayoral campaign announced it would return tainted donations from his successful 2009 bid for NYC Comptroller. A key Liu fundraiser with ties to Chinatown was recently charged in a campaign fraud investigation. A federal inquiry is continuing.
The rally will be held December 12th at CCBA headquarters on Mott Street. Liu maintains strong support in Chinatown, in spite of his recent troubles. Just before Thanksgiving, he appeared at a neighborhood senior center.
