New York, NY - City Comptroller John Liu has taken the first step to sue the city over his failed mayoral bid.

Liu filed a notice of claim Nov. 1 and says the city denied his campaign about $3.5 million in public funding. His lawsuit is seeking unspecified money damages.

The city board of elections denied the funds based in part on allegations of fundraising violations. According to a statement in August, the ruling was based in part on the prosecution of Liu’s campaign manager and former fundraiser, found guilty in October.

The notice of claim was filed with Liu’s office, and his attorney told the Daily News of New York that he has recused himself from the matter (http://nydn.us/17S8JcA ).

Scott Stringer was elected the new comptroller.

I think you should rethink both the severity and suggested method of punishment... Honestly, you don't sound Jewish.

What a horrible thing to say!!!

However, Liu is a sore loser any way you look at it. I do believe his political life is over. He needs to accept that he just didn't endear himself to the NYC population. I sincerely doubt that he will win his case.

The new definition of chutzpah, after the classic orphan case. Liu should thank his lucky stars he was not personally brought into the campaign manager case.

Please learn to distinguish sarcasm and parody from realty...you will enjoy these postings more and have a good laugh occasionally. This lawsuit deserve to be buried in a pile of trash. It is sooo stupid and insulting to the New York electorate from someone who once had the respect of many New Yorkers. Its also an insult to Asian Americans.
