    The CFB who made that decision were appointed  by Bloomberg and Quinn. It was not unbiased by a long shot. It was the ONLY time such a decision was made and it was not fair and in no way a progressive or reform decision.

    Not to say there weren't issues with Liu's campaign, but those issues were actually small in terms of monetary amounts compared to what the other candidates did.

    de Blasio's campaign was fined $20,000 for misuse of campaign funds. There were at least two levels of misuse of funds by de Blasio's campaign according to judges. But somehow no one talks about that. Liu's campaign had issues. But they were not fundamentally different from any of the other candidates except Sal Albanese. Sal was the ONLY candidate I know of no such issues. So if you fault Liu you have to fault de Blasio and all the others except Sal Albanese.

    Truth is, though Liu's campaign had flaws, they STILL were more transparent and honest than any of the other campaigns in the race other than Sal's.

      allege bias.

      Fines are common.  Being booted from the program, for a citywide candidate is unique.

      •  You might want to do the same (0+ / 0-)

        It was unique and was orchestrated by people 100% appointed by Bloomberg and Quinn. You are ignoring that.

        You really think de Blasio is somehow clean? He has more accusations than Liu and more fines than Liu. If you want to argue that neither is clean I would understand. But if you are claiming de Blasio is somehow clean and Liu not then you are delusional. Now it worked for de Blasio because he had large amounts of money coming from developers. Fine. That is how the system works. But anyone who thinks de Blasio is cleaner than Liu doesn't know de Blasio.
