A review of New York City Comptroller John Liu's 2009 campaign records shows he accepted political contributions from people linked to a disgraced Democratic fundraiser.
Liu told the Wall Street Journal he'll examine whether the donations linked to Norman Hsu should be returned. He said he wasn't sure why they hadn't but said he was confident his fundraising was proper.
Hsu was a one-time fundraiser for Hillary Rodham Clinton and other prominent Democrats. He was sentenced in 2009 to 24 years in prison for fraud and breaking campaign finance laws.
The Journal's review of Liu's campaign records show he kept contributions from five donors connected to Hsu.
They included an actress and a California man who later testified in federal court that they had been straw donors for Hsu.
