A New Jersey man who raised funds for New York City Comptroller John Liu has been indicted on conspiracy and wire fraud charges.

Xing Wu Pan was indicted Wednesday in federal court in Manhattan. He was charged in November and freed on $100,000 bail.

The indictment accuses him of submitting fraudulent contribution forms to "an individual who worked for the campaign of a candidate" running for public office in the city. The wording was a reference to Liu, a Democrat considered a potential successor to Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

Pan's lawyer did not immediately comment.

Liu has said that if the allegations are true, his campaign was not told the truth.

If convicted, the Hudson County, N.J., resident faces up to 20 years in prison.
