City controller John Liu met with nine of his bundlers, who are donors who get other people to donate, during his work hours last year. This mean that he may have broken election laws.
Liu met with three of his bundlers during work hours less than a month after they gave him their bundles, thousands of dollars in each case.
However, Liu's spokesperson argued that as a very public figure Liu meets with thousands of New Yorkers every year and that it would be unreasonable to expect him to turn away people who'd contributed to his campaign fund.
Those donors and bundlers successfully contacted by the Daily News avowed they hadn't discussed Liu's prospective run for mayor or anything about fundraising. Liu's bundlers have raised more than $500,000 for his war chest in the past six months.
