As of August 27, 2014, two of my friends who are registered Democrat in #SD11 feel “slighted” by John Liu because they haven’t received any campaign mailing from John Liu. NOTE: these 2 Asian-American voters are both “Die-Hard” registered Democrats who vote every year (even in “sleepy” Primary election years when the Weprin Brothers (David or Mark) facing no opponents in Northeast Queens, they still make it to the voting booth to cast their “sleepy” ballots. They wonder if their Asian last names gave John Liu the false impression that they (Asian voters) would vote according to their ethnic background in the Sept 2014 Primary election. They did receive the following campaign mailing from the IDC Initiative about John Liu. And they did receive the positive and upbeat “Watchdog” mailing from Tony Avella’s campaign. They each received more than THREE campaign mailings from Andrew Cuomo.

Introduction: NONE of the media has ever covered TWO DUBIOUS BIG CAMPAIGN DONORS of JOHN LIU (劉醇逸) before, these TWO DUBIOUS BIG DONORS are: alleged pro-Communist China money-launderer and Mafia Cop Protector Jian Li Hou (侯健利) and Hugh H. Mo (莫虎) are discussed in Sections 1 & 2.
- Collection of Media reports over the years on John Liu’s strong ties to Communist China.
- John Liu’s Dubious Ability as a Leader – Is John Liu (劉醇逸) merely “Tony Soprano” Lucky?
- Similar to Tony Soprano, John Liu’s DIRECT & EXTENDED Family Members and Associates are CRIMINALS (see proof below)
- BAYSIDE RESIDENTS TAKE NOTE: John Liu (劉醇逸) is related to NOTORIOUS Real Estate Developer Tommy Huang (黃仲連).
- Alice Liu (the first cousin of John Liu) pleaded guilty to SECURTIES FRAUD in NYC in 2013. John Liu’s father pleaded guilty to BANK FRAUD in 2001 related to Great Eastern Bank (冠東銀行) scandal. John Liu’s two staffers Xing-Wu “Oliver” Pan and Jia “Jenny” Hou were arrested in 2011 and 2012 (respectively) and convicted of CAMPAIGN FRAUD in 2013.
- Do You Want Bayside, Whitestone, Glen Oaks and the rest of Senate District 11 to be homes to Monster McMansion under John Liu’s Dubious “Leadership”? Under John Liu’s term in City Council (2002-2009) for Flushing, Queensboro Hill, etc., he looked the other way on Monster McMansions (out of character & out of proportion) in his district.
- John Liu’s notorious relative Tommy Huang‘s long-time attorney is the DISGRACEFUL Lung-Fong Chen (陳隆豐). Note that Lung-Fong Chen (陳隆豐) is a close ally and business partner of John Liu’s father. Both Lung-Fong Chen (陳隆豐) and John Liu’s father are convicted criminals. Lung-Fong Chen (陳隆豐) has been disbarred & prohibited from practicing law since 2001 when he was convicted of BANK FRAUD related to Great Eastern Bank (冠東銀行) along with his business partner, aka: John Liu’s father, Chang F. “Joseph” Liu (劉昌峰). In addition, Lung-Fong Chen (陳隆豐) has obviously been LYING about his law school education ???? at New York University (see proof in the section below). It is amazing that despite being convicted of Federal Felony Crime, Lung-Fong Chen (陳隆豐) has served as Chairman (理事長) at the New York-Taiwan Center (紐約台灣會館). And John Liu (劉醇逸) who lacks moral compass, still accepted campaign donations from DISGRACED & DISBARRED attorney Lung-Fong Chen in 2013 for his Mayoral campaign with NO intention to return the DISGRACED & DIRTY donations.
- John Liu is Dishonest: In 2009 and again in 2013 campaign TV ads and brochures, John Liu had to lie about his very comfortable UPPER Middle-Class upbringing to woo the Low-Income Voters citywide in the 2009 NYC Comptroller & 2013 Mayoral Elections (See proof below).
- John Liu (劉醇逸) is a deadbeat who came up with all sorts of excuses (even a lame technicality that was thrown out by a Judge). He repeatedly refuses to pay $527,000 fine for illegally posting political signs for his 2009 campaign. Meanwhile, both Bill de Blasio and Bill Thompson had PAID-IN-FULL $300,000 and nearly $600,000 respectively for their illegal 2009 campaign posters ALREADY. Only deadbeat John Liu is dragging on, REFUSING TO PAY UP.
- John Liu (劉醇逸) Steals Credit for Other People’s Work
- John Liu (劉醇逸) Blew $2 Billion on the City Pension Plans on Bad Bets during his time as NYC Comptroller (2010-2013). NOTE: While John Liu brags?!?! about his paltry 12% return on City Pension in 2013 as his impressive ??? achievement ????, the S&P 500 Index made SUPER-IMPRESSIVE 29.60% return in 2013. Yes, this means your City Cops, Firefighters and the average NYC taxpayers are paying for John Liu’s bad bets. Mayor Bloomberg’s FY 2014 operating budget plows $8.2 billion into the pension system, up from $1.5 billion in 2001. Plus link to New York Times article dated August 4, 2014 on NYC Pension Mess.
- ALL HAIL TO THE PRIMA DONNA John Liu! Demanding people to rise up and greet him as “Mr. Comptroller“
- Certain NYC-Chinese media propaganda: Dissenting Chinese Voters who don’t think John Liu is fit to be in political office are censored by certain Chinese media
Section 1: John Liu’s Long-Time BIG Campaign Donor and Person of Interest #1: Jian Li Hou (侯健利)
- John Liu’s Campaign Donor is Allegedly MONEY-LAUDERING the Communist China-Funded Money
- Chinese gossip on how Jian Li Hou’s fortune suddenly turned for the better on or shortly after 2005. NOTE: Some suggested that the IRS and FBI should audit the Hou family’s tax records and finance records.
- Apparently, “Patriotic China Duties” were more important than “Fatherly Duty” for Jian Li Hou (侯健利).
Section 2: John Liu’s Long-Time BIG Campaign Donor and Person of Interest #2: Hugh H. Mo (莫虎)
- Mafia-Cop Protector & Attorney Hugh H. Mo (莫虎) has close ties to John Liu, Jian Li Hou and the mysterious BJAA-NY.
- Chinese gossip on Hugh Mo’s Initial Communist Agent Contact in 1985
- Did Hugh Mo receive BIG BRIBE from Mafia Cop Louis Eppolito in 1985 in exchange for exonerating him?
- Timeline on Hugh Mo’s “meteoric rise” from a poor government lawyer to riches in a relatively short time.
Section 3: (This Section is Work-in-Progress) A collection of some absurd and biased NYC Chinese media reporting of John Liu’s election campaign. This section may only be updated once or twice a month since I have to rely on translation help.
To judge a political candidate, you should get to know his/her Long-Time and Major Campaign Donors and Supporters. If the Long-Time Major Campaign Donors have dubious background (such as suspicious ties to Communism, and/or history of protecting a Mafia Cop), stay VERY far away from the political candidate. NOTE: The Chinese Major Campaign Donors of John Liu not only support Liu (a Democrat), they are also supporting Phil Gim (a Republican, Chinese-American) to oust Ron Kim (incumbent Democrat, Korean-American) in the 2014 NY Assembly District 40 election. Very puzzling!
It is very interesting why House of Rep. Joe Crowley, fellow Democrats and several Labor Unions are endorsing a Communist China-Approved candidate John Liu to unseat a Democrat incumbent (Tony Avella, he switched to IDC line recently) in the 2014 NY Senate District 11 election. Before making a big U-Turn on July 8, 2014, the Working Families Party’s (WFP) slogan was to “kick out a fake Democrat” to allow the Dems to gain Majority position in the NY Senate. But the Working Families Party and fellow Democrats are sparing LONG-TIME “Turncoat” Simcha Felder who defected to the Republican Party line (caucusing for the GOP) just ONE WEEK after he was elected to NY Senate in 2012. Why? Are the Democrats and Labor Unions kowtowing to the Jewish money and votes? (SPECIAL NOTE: as of July 8, 2014, the WFP has decided to rescind endorsement of John Liu. Instead, the WFP is remaining neutral in the Senate District 11 election in 2014).
China’s Ambitious Spy Networks?!?! Too Far-Fetched for Your Taste?!?!
How about recent news that the US Government is Filing Charges Against 5 Chinese Military Hackers who are stealing business trade secrets and proprietary information from BIG NAME Companies in the U.S., potentially saving China billions of dollar in research & development? After this, the CNN reports that a SECOND group of Chinese Military hackers are involved in another economic espionage in the U.S.
NOTE: these are Chinese MILITARY Hackers working for the Chinese GOVERNMENT, NOT your Private Citizen Hackers. The Dept of Justice specifically named “Wang Dong, Sun Kailiang, Wen Xinyu, Huang Zhenyu, and Gu Chunhui, who were officers in Unit 61398 of the Third Department of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA),” as perpetrators in the first-ever case of economic espionage charges against hackers working for a foreign government. Big-name companies: Westinghouse, U.S. Steel, Alcoa, and Allegheny Technologies Inc., or ATI, a specialty steelmaker, were targeted in the scheme that allegedly began in 2006. SolarWorld AG, a German company with operations in Oregon, and the United Steelworkers of America, which is headquartered in Pittsburgh, are also victims of Chinese business espionage.
To infiltrate into U.S. political systems and access sensitive U.S. Government data, China simply cannot hire Chinese nationals to do this job. They need Chinese-American politicians loyal to China to do political spying on American soil.
Do a Google search on “John Liu Communist“, here is a list of articles and YouTube video discussions about John Liu’s Communist ties and involvements. It’s very intersting that if you Google search “Communist” and the names of OTHER Chinese-American politicians or candidates, you wouldn’t see as many articles (or any articles or videos at all) accusing them of being a Communist.

Besides the alleged Communist China ties, destiny is not in favor of John Liu since 2011. Read the Karma Chart of John Liu in this link, destiny and Lady Luck are definitely abandoning him since his 2011 turning point year.
John Liu’s Dubious Ability as a Leader – Is He Merely “Tony Soprano” Lucky? John Liu’s DIRECT & EXTENDED Family Members & Associates are CRIMINALS (see proof below).
A burning question on voters’ minds: How good is John Liu’s ability as an effective leader if Campaign Fraud committed by NOT JUST ONE but TWO staffers under John Liu’s nose were not detected and resolved before the Fed took legal action, both convicted of Campaign FRAUD in May 2013? Take the analogy of “Tony Soprano” and “Steven A. Cohen” here. Both men walked away scot-free despite their respective Mafia and Hedge Fund “Insider Trading” associates being nailed by the Feds. The Feds never quite got to Soprano or Cohen directly because “The Men” were extremely cautious. The mere fact that the Feds are unable to nail “The Man” himself does not completely exonerate ‘The Man” from his associates’ illegal dealings.
FAIR DISCLOSURE: I wrote a blog post in 2012 about then-candidate Yen Chou (周燕霞) (for 2012 NY State Assembly District 40 race) with the help of some Chinese-American friends who do not belong to Falun Gong. Some of you may know that Falun Gong is anti-Communist China to the extreme, by extension, the Falun Gong is also anti-John Liu Communist to the extreme. Nothing in their lives suggest that they are Falun Gong supporters. In fact, some are highly suspicious of Falun Gong’s massive financial power. They also say Falun Gong seems rather selfish in their mission. When there are major disasters affecting many people or immigrants badly in need of help, these Falun Gong people just go MIA (Missing-In-Action) without lifting a finger to help these poor people, as though anti-Communism alone trump humanity and compassion for people. They wonder where Falun Gong’s money came from. What they have is some on-the-street knowledge about gossips in the NYC Chinese community, combined with their brain power to discern absurd false journalism written by certain NYC Chinese media.
Similar to Tony Soprano, John Liu’s DIRECT & EXTENDED Family Members & Associates are CRIMINALS (see proof below)
FIRST: do NOT believe in John Liu’s 2009 campaign sob story about his poverty-striken childhood in Bayside, Queens. Not only was John Liu’s father a FAST-TRACK and HIGHLY SUCCESSFUL BANKER for a few decades until he was found GUILTY of Bank FRAUD and sent to Federal Prison, John Liu’s extended family is EXTREMELY WEALTHY in Taiwan. According to extensive news articles from Real Deal and the Queens Chronicle, John Liu’s uncle Lai-Qin Liu (劉來欽) is the founder and owner of Haw-Di-I Foods Co., Ltd (好帝一食品有限公司) in Taiwan. The food company (link to their website) was founded in 1958 in Taiwan making well-known household items “BULL HEAD brand Barbecue Sauce” (牛頭牌沙茶醬) and other related products.
The heiress to the Haw-Di-I Foods fortune is called Alice Liu, she is also the first cousin of John Liu. People in Northeast Queens may not know who Alice Liu is. But if I mention that Alice Liu is married to a notorious man commonly hated in Northeast Queens, neighbors who live near 39-39 223rd St, Bayside NY have EXTRA reasons to HATE/DETEST her husband. That may grab your attention. Are you ready?
Alice Liu is married to the notorious real estate developer Tommy Huang (黃仲連) since the late 1970s. Despite a 1999 agreement with the Queens County prosecutors to a lifetime ban on condo and co-op business involvements, Tommy Huang still continues to break the law and violate his agreement with the prosecutors.
Alice Liu (the first cousin of John Liu, and wife of Tommy Huang) pleaded guilty to SECURTIES FRAUD in 2013. John Liu’s father pleaded guilty to BANK FRAUD in 2001. John Liu’s two staffers Xing-Wu “Oliver” Pan and Jia “Jenny” Hou were arrested in 2011 and 2012 (respectively) and convicted of CAMPAIGN FRAUD in 2013.
(Photo courtesy of Queens Chronicle) The site at 39-39 223 Street, Bayside NY which is near Cross Island Parkway in Bayside. This location was supposed to be a single-family home. But Tommy Huang has turned a single-family home into FOUR separate homes, creating Structural Hazards. The so-called “Through Lot?!?!”?!” that Tommy Huang built would lead emergency vehicles to a CLIFF, tumbling the vehicles onto Cross Island Parkway below it.
QUOTE from the Queens Chronicle article dated Nov 15. 2012:
One home faces 223rd Street, with the others facing Mia Drive, which is an access road. The DOB granted permits for the homes with the stipulation a portion of the property would be a “through lot.” The change allowed Huang to bypass zoning requirements for a backyard and put a small road alongside one of the homes instead, as long as they all had a sprinkler system.
Neighbors and members of the community board quickly noticed a problem — the “through lot” led to a piece of Parks Department property, which was essentially a cliff. Any emergency vehicles using the resulting back road to nowhere would tumble haplessly onto the Cross Island Parkway.
From the Queens Chronicle (May 8, 2014) about the terrible damages done by Tommy Huang and Alice Liu (First cousin of John Liu) to a Bayside neighborhood: Huang houses killing area’s quality of life
From the NY Daily News (January 10, 2011). Despite the lifetime real estate ban since 1999, Tommy Huang was busy developing a site in Elmhurst, Queens using shoddy materials, causing 1 worker killed and 2 injured in a wall collapse : 1 killed, 3 injured in Wall Collapse
From Chinese World Journal (May 10, 2014) in Chinese: 黃仲連空屋成隱患 鄰居不滿
From Chinese World Journal (Sept 19, 2013) in Chinese: 開發商黃仲連 認罪繳罰款
Photo taken by World Journal at the Courthouse: Tommy Huang (黃仲連) (l) and his wife Alice Liu (r) have become “regular fixtures” over the years at the Queens County Supreme Court due to repeated violations of their lifetime ban agreements with prosecutors, and their repeated attempts to break the law. Read the legal document “People vs. Tommy Huang, Alice Huang, Henry Huang and 51 Management“.
And you know what? Alice Liu and husband Tommy Huang (黃仲連) are banking on their first cousin John Liu to be elected as NY State Senator to skirt their lifetime ban on residentital development and selling. The Huang couple know that they can use their son Henry Huang and their daughter Tiffany Huang to profit from the illegal dealings, AND they can count on their First Cousin John Liu to protect them.
(Photos by the New York Post) Close-Up Photos of notorius real estate developer Tommy Huang (黃仲連) (l), and his wife Alice Liu (r) who is the first cousin of John Liu. Despite a 1999 agreement with Queens County prosecutors to a lifetime ban on residential developments, Tommy Huang (黃仲連) and his wife Alice Liu continue to break the law. They will become more emboldened if their first cousin John Liu becomes NY State Senator.
Do You Want Bayside, Whitestone, Glen Oaks and the rest of Senate District 11 to be homes to Monster McMansion under John Liu’s Dubious “Leadership”? Under John Liu’s term in City Council (2002-2009) for Flushing, Queensboro Hill, etc., he looked the other way on Monster McMansions (out of character & proportion) in his district.
(Photo by Alex Robinson at the Times Ledger) A new house on 56th road (in Queensboro Hill), which neighbors are complaining changes the character of their block, is nearing completion.
Check out the torn-up row houses in Queensboro Hill being built into Monster McMansion homes by a growing list of Chinese in Queens who get support from John Liu and his cronies like Tommy Huang. Meanwhile, when Tony Avella was in City Council (2002-2009), he fought very hard against over-development. Along with Queens Civic Congress, Tony Avella successfully worked to rezone large swaths of northeast Queens to prevent out-of-scale houses from being built. Meanwhile, John Liu had his dirty hands to block similar City Planning changes from happening to Flushing and Queensboro Hill. Neighbors noticed that at these Monster McMansions in Queensboro Hill, there are THREE Gas Meters being installed in ONE Monster McMansion (Smells like Multi-Rental Units for investment-minded Chinese owners).These Chinese owners are only looking out for their own profit motives, they don’t look at the harmful consequences of their selfish action.
From Queens Chronicle, July 31, 2014: House Construction Causes Conflict
From Times Ledger, July 31, 2014: Mini McMansion Draws Flushing’s Ire
When you RENT a SINGLE-FAMILY home to 5 DIFFERENT FAMILIES for EXTRA RENTAL INCOME, you NOT ONLY BLOCK the SUNLIGHT from neighbors’ homes, you are creating PARKING SPACE SHORTAGE, contributing to OVER-CROWDING at LOCAL PUBLIC SCHOOLS, more LOCAL RESIDENTS fighting for the LIMITED HOSPITAL BEDS, OVER-CROWDING at LOCAL BUS LINES, and during HEAT WAVE weather – greater chance for ELECTRICITY/POWER BLACKOUT.
John Liu’s notorious relative Tommy Huang‘s long-time attorney is the DISGRACEFUL Lung-Fong Chen (陳隆豐). Note that Lung-Fong Chen (陳隆豐) is a close ally and business partner of John Liu’s father, Chang F. “Joseph” Liu (劉昌峰). Both Lung-Fong Chen (陳隆豐) and John Liu’s father are convicted criminals. Lung-Fong Chen (陳隆豐) has been disbarred & prohibited from practicing law since 2001 when he was convicted of BANK FRAUD related to Great Eastern Bank (冠東銀行) along with his business partner, aka: John Liu’s father, Chang F. “Joseph” Liu (劉昌峰). See legal document link on the disbarment details of Lung-Fong Chen: UNITED STATES v. LUNG FONG CHEN, Docket Nos. 02-1055(L), 02-1056(CON), 02-1073(CON) and 02-1124(XAP).
DISGRACED & DISBARRED attorney Lung-Fong Chen (陳隆豐) graduated from National Taiwan University (國立臺灣大學). He, John Liu and John Liu’s direct & extended family members are TOTAL DISGRACE to the Taiwanese society. I wonder if Lung-Fong CHEN (陳隆豐) is related to another CORRUPTED & DISGRACEFUL attorney CHEN Shui-Bian (陳水扁) (aka: former President of Taiwan), currently serving Prison sentence in Taiwan. Corrupted former Taiwan President Chen Shui-Bian (陳水扁) also graduated from National Taiwan University (國立臺灣大學). Does National Taiwan University (國立臺灣大學) TRAIN and NURTURE CORRUPTED and DISGRACEFUL students to pollute the society?
Screen shot of the NY State Attorney Directory – Lung-Fong Chen (陳隆豐) is obviously disbarred and prohibited from practicing law after being convicted and served Prison sentence for his BANK FRAUD crime with John Liu’s father in 2001. Lung-Fong Chen (陳隆豐) has been LYING to the Chinese community about his law school education ???? at New York University. According to the New York State official directory (see screen shot above), Lung-Fong Chen (陳隆豐) only had law school education at National Taiwan University.
It is amazing that despite being convicted of Federal Felony Crime, Lung-Fong Chen (陳隆豐) has served as Chairman (理事長) at the New York-Taiwan Center (紐約台灣會館).
By the way, the Chinese name of DISGRACED & DISBARRED attorney Lung-Fong Chen (陳隆豐) literally means “Augmentation” which immediately conjures up the term “Breast Augmentation” or “Penile Augmentation“. When Lung-Fong Chen (陳隆豐) grew up in Taiwan, was he constantly teased by classmates over his funny name? Perhaps his mother was obsessed with “Breast Augmentation“, and his father with “Penis Augmentation” so badly, they just had to name their son breast augmentation/penis augmentation.
In case you missed it, DISGRACED & DISBARRED attorney Lung-Fong Chen (陳隆豐) assumed the role of Chairman for the Taiwan DPP (Democratic Progressive Party 民進黨) – Eastern U.S. Chapter on May 30, 2010. See related news link from the Epoch Times and World Journal.
Photo of convicted criminal Lung-Fong Chen (陳隆豐) who has been disbarred since 2001 for BANK FRAUD charges on the right, and his wife 郭玥娟 (English phonetic name, GUO Yue–Juan).
Apparently, convicted criminal Lung-Fong Chen (陳隆豐) finds the time and money to create a recently established Taiwanese American Arts Council (TAAC) holding its inaugural fundraising dinner on July 19, 2014. Lung-Fong Chen (陳隆豐) is the President of TAAC.
John Liu made lame excuses on why he had NO plan to return DIRTY Campaign Donations from a Convicted Criminal in his 2013 Mayoral campaign
According to the New York Post, in the 2013 Mayoral campaign, John Liu accepted campaign donations from DISGRACED & DISBARRED attorney Lung-Fong Chen (陳隆豐) with NO intention to return the DISGRACED donations. Read John Liu‘s TWISTED LOGIC (link here)on why accepting DIRTY campaign donation from a convicted criminal was ETHICAL. Read comments from political consultant Hank Sheinkopf and former City Councilwoman Julia Harrison criticizing John Liu on this.
John Liu is Dishonest: In 2009 & again in 2013, John Liu had to lie about his very comfortable UPPER Middle-Class upbringing to woo the Low-Income Voters citywide in the Comptroller & Mayoral Election (See proof below).
According to the NY Daily News (by Adam Lisberg and Erin Einhorn in 2009), Liu campaigned in 2009 on the “Sob story??” that his mother was a sweatshop garment factory worker. Liu – who claims that he worked as a “knitting thread manager” beside his mom Jamy R.M. Liu (尤瑞美) in Queens factories from 1974 to 1978, starting when he was 7 years old – has been under fire since The Daily News revealed that his parents and two longtime family friends disputed his story. (WOW! Is John Liu a Habitual Liar or What?) In reality, Chang F. “Joseph” Liu worked at the Bank of Taiwan 臺灣銀行 (at least at the Bank Supervisor level) before the whole family immigrated from Taiwan to the U.S. in 1972 (John Liu was 5 years old in 1972). Per bank records unearthed by the Daily News, in November 1972, Papa Joseph Liu joined a Japanese bank called Hokkaido Takushoku Bank as an International Officer, helping to establish a new money center in New York. He was in charge of most of the departments in that Bank until 1983.” And in 1977, Papa Joseph Liu bought a house in Bayside with $58,000 mortgage (in 1977 dollars, using US Inflation Calculator: $58,000 Mortgage in 1977 = $227,693.07 Mortgage as of June 2014). NOTE: the mortgage portion obviously excludes the Cash Down payment of the house. John Liu’s childhood home address in Bayside Queens was: 222-21 Kenilworth Drive, Bayside NY 11364.
John Liu’s childhood home in Bayside Queens. Liu grew up in this two-story single family house with attached garage on 222-21 Kenilworth Drive, Bayside NY 11364. Papa Joseph Liu (劉昌峰) bought this house in 1977 (five years after the Liu family immigrated from Taiwan to the US). Does this house look like low-income housing project to you? Do you think Mama Liu’s so-called sweatshop work REALLY could make a dent on the Mortgage payment on this house when her husband was a fast-track Banker?
Obviously, sometime after 1983 when Papa Liu left the Japanese bank, Papa Liu co-founded a Community Bank in Flushing, NY called “Great Eastern Bank” (冠東銀行) where he was the President and CEO of the community bank. Father Chang F. “Joseph” Liu would later be found guilty and sentenced to jail time for Bank FRAUD in 2001, see the Federal Court documents HERE about his Federal charges.
(Photo from l to r) Papa Chang F. “Joseph” Liu (劉昌峰) was convicted of Bank FRAUD and sentenced to Prison term in 2001, John Liu (劉醇逸), and his mother Jamy R.M. Liu. (尤瑞美) Obviously, the Liu family is no strangers to prison. Do you think Chang F. “Joseph” Liu (劉昌峰) offered Prison survival advice to Jia “Jenny” Hou and Xing Wu “Oliver” Pan who are convicted of Campaign Fraud in his son John Liu’s campaign?
If you don’t believe me that John Liu lived in fairly priviledged, Middle-Class Bayside Queens as a child, ask “The Man” himself where he attended elementary school. John Liu is a proud graduate of P.S. 203 which is right in the heart of Bayside Queens. If John Liu’s mother Jamy R.M. Liu (尤瑞美) truly worked as a sweatshop worker when he was a child, one would seriously question the Bank Executive husband (papa Joseph Liu) for putting his wife (aka: Mama Liu) in such a situation.
John Liu is a deadbeat who came up with all sorts of excuses (even a lame technicality that was thrown out by a Judge). He repeatedly refuses to pay $527,000 fine for illegally posting political signs for his 2009 campaign. Meanwhile, both Bill de Blasio and Bill Thompson had PAID-IN-FULL $300,000 and nearly $600,000 respectively for their illegal 2009 campaign posters ALREADY. Only deadbeat John Liu is dragging on, REFUSING TO PAY UP.
The NY Daily News, July 2, 2012: City Controller John Liu slapped with a whopping $527k fine for illegally posting political signs during his 2009 campaign
The NY Daily News (Editorial), June 30, 2013: Controller John Liu is a weasel
The New York Observer, May 9, 2013: Bill de Blasio’s 2009 Campaign Fined by Finance Board (but de Blasio PAID IN FULL $300,000 Fine for Illegal Campaign Posters, so did Bill Thompson PAYING IN FULL nearly $500,000 for Illegal Campaign Posters).
John Liu Steals Credit for Other People’s Work
For people who may be misled to think it was John Liu who unearth and broke the CityTime scandal or the 911 Calling System scandal, you should look at WHO ACTUALLY BROKE these scandals. It was investigative journalist Juan Gonzalez at the NY Daily News who ACTUALLY has been breaking one scandal after another. By the way, if the Thomas Galante/Queens Library scandal broke in 2013 instead of 2014, I bet John Liu would have claimed credit for breaking the Queens Library scandal too. In reality, John Liu was merely REACTING to Juan Gonzalez’s EXCLUSIVE news on CityTime scandal and 911 Calling System scandal. Imagine the current NYC Comptroller Scott Stringer patting himself on the back claiming he’s the hero who FOUND?!?! and CLEAN-UP?!?! the corruption at Queens Library. This would lead to bursts of laughter among New Yorkers who regularly read Juan Gonzalez’s column at the Daily News.
Picture a police with 4 years experience under his belt, he pats himself on the back and tells people proudly , “I arrested 200 thugs in my 4 years as a cop! Ain’t that special?“. In reality, this cop was MERELY doing what his job title REQUIRES him to do, NOTHING MORE.
Why do I say John Liu would claim credit for someone else’s work? Because John Liu had a history of making false claims. John Liu claimed on his 2009 TV campaign ads that he helped catch the MTA using two sets of books. This “MTA using 2 sets of books MYTH” was spread by then-disgraced ex-City Comptroller Alan Hevesi in 2003 (Hevesi is barred for life from Elected Office after he was found guilty of corruption charges). The New York State Appeals Court later found that this “MTA using 2 sets of books” allegation was FALSE.
The NY Daily News Aug 12, 2009: Controller Hopeful John Liu Takes Flack for “2 Books” Claim on TV Ads
As of Dec 31, 2009, John Liu was still a City Council Member who, a few months ago, was busy 24/7 campaigning to be City Comptroller. He was NOT yet the City Comptroller. As a City Council member, he did NOT have the job title, the job function, the time or the resources to audit the CityTime malfesance. Instead, it was investigative journalist Juan Gonzalez who broke the CityTime Scandal on Dec 3, 2009. John Liu was merely REACTING to the Exclusive Story broke by Juan Gonzalez at the NY Daily News.
The NY Daily News (by investigative journalist Juan Gonzalez) Dec 3, 2009 – it was JUAN GONZALEZ who BROKE the CITYTIME SCANDAL in 2009: High-tech computerized payroll system for city employees costs taxpayers big

Likewise, after John Liu became City Comptroller in 2010, Liu was merely REACTING to Juan Gonzalez’s 2009 EXCLUSIVE NEWS on the 911 Calling System Scandal by launching audit investigations into the 911 Calling System.

John Liu Blew $2 Billion on City Pension Investment Return on Bad Bets during his time as NYC Comptroller (2010-2013).Yes, this means your City Cops, Firefighters and the average NYC taxpayers are paying for John Liu’s bad bets. NOTE: While John Liu brags?!?! about his paltry 12% return on City Pension in 2013 as his impressive ???? achievement ????, the S&P 500 Index made SUPER-IMRESSIVE 29.60% return in 2013.
Instead of investing in low-cost and reliable solid performers such as S&P 500 Index and Core Bond funds, John Liu chose to invest in HIGH-FEE (read: EXPENSIVE) hedge funds, private equity and real-estate investments (REIT). These HIGH-FEE Hedge Funds, Private Equity and REIT charge 2% management fee and they skim 20% off any profits you make. Read this news story on John Liu paying a whopping $14 Million Incentive Fees in 2010 to PIMCO for managing the NYC Pension, actually John Liu could have done a MUCH BETTER and CHEAPER JOB if he had invested NYC Pension in Vanguard S&P 500 Index Funds.
NOTE: John Liu obviously doesn’t know how to count from 0 to 3 (as in 2010 to 2013). Through his spokesman Austin Shafran, he claims the following,
The Liu camp also pointed to a 13.4 percent average rate of return the city’s pension fund recorded over the last five years (MY NOTE: Liu was in office for only FOUR years, he can’t claim 2009 results when he wasn’t even in office until January 1, 2010). The rate of return was 12.1 percent for fiscal year 2013, according to the comptroller’s office, well above the assumed rate of 7 percent.
In reality, John Liu only served as NYC Comptroller for 4 years (from January 1, 2010 to December 31, 2013). Use your fingers to count from ZERO to THREE – you use exactly FOUR fingers to do this counting. NOTE: the S&P 500 Index returned SUPER-IMPRESSIVE 29.60% in 2013, but John Liu brags ?!?!?! about his so-called impressive ???? achievement ??? of 12% return in 2013. Per the NY Daily News, the NYC Pension return under John Liu in 2012 was a paltry 1.7% while the S&P 500 Index made 13.29% in 2012.
Hot off the press: The New York Times published this FRONT-PAGE (Page A1) article contradicting John Liu‘s false claims that he did a stellar job on NYC Pension investment when he was NYC Comptroller: New York City Pension System Is Strained by Costs and Politics
The New York Post on Dec 15, 2013: Liu “blew” $2 Billion on Bad Bets
After being skimmed 20% off any profits and the 2% management fee to HIGH-FEE Hedge Funds and the likes, the City Pension investment returns FELL SHORT under John Liu’s watch.
By law, the TAXPAYERS are on the hook for pension costs when investments fall short. Mayor Bloomberg’s FY 2014 operating budget plows $8.2 billion into the pension system (to make up for the SHORTFALL caused by John Liu’s Bad Bets), up from $1.5 billion in 2001.
City taxpayers, by law, must repay the 2013 management fees in 2015 — at 7 percent interest for two years.
ALL HAIL TO THE PRIMA DONNA John Liu!
Another issue is, if John Liu becomes a New York State Senator, will he demand everyone (including his office workers and the SD 11 voters and constituents) to rise up and address him as “Mr. Senator” as soon as they see him coming? Ya think I’m exaggerating? It is truly a blessing that John Liu lost the Mayoral race in 2013. Otherwise, he’d be expecting all Neu Yawkers to rise up and call this Communist Chinese spy “Mr. Mayor“. Sounds to me like, “Hail Hitler!”
New York Post (by Chuck Bennett) January 11, 2010: All Rise for Liu, the Prima Donna!
Recall this incidence that happened in early January 2010 (shortly after John Liu sworn in as NYC Comptroller), per the New York Post, over a series of meeting, John Liu laid out the new presidential-like formalities. He demanded everyone in the office to rise up and address him as “Mr. Comptroller“. Even Liu’s long-time aide and confidante Sharon Lee admitted that it was not easy to adjust to the new change. Because she was so used to calling him just “JL“.
Certain NYC-Chinese media propaganda: Dissenting Chinese Voters who don’t think John Liu is fit to be in political office are censored by certain Chinese media
Do NOT be misled that Chinese people ALL love John Liu?!?!?!?!?!? Check out this news from Sing Tao Daily on July 21, 2014. Tony Avella was visiting New York-Taiwan Center (紐約台灣會館) at 137-44 Northern Blvd, Flushing NY on July 20, 2014. The Chinese World Journal (with very close ties to John Liu, Hugh Mo and others) is too afraid to publish photos of dissenting Chinese voters who dislike John Liu and who believe he is unfit to be a politician.
We have at least one Chinese-American news reporter who is obviously NOT a big fan of John Liu. The New York Times City Hall bureau chief reporter David W. Chen broke the John Liu campaign irregularities scandal in 2011 with his colleague Raymond Hernandez, resulting in two of John Liu’s campaign staffers convicted of campaign fraud in 2013. And David W. Chen is the lead author in the latest New York Times article about the NYC Pension Mess (in which John Liu was part of the mess) with his colleague Mary Williams Walsh.
Photo courtesy of Sing Tao Daily. You will NEVER see this kind of photo being published by the Chinese World Journal to show any hints that Chinese voters do NOT unanimously support John Liu. On July 20, 2014, Tony Avella went to visit New York-Taiwan Center (紐約台灣會館) at 137-44 Northern Blvd, Flushing NY. He was accompanied by his Chinese supporters.(Photo courtesy of Sing Tao Daily, taken on July 20, 2014 outside New York-Taiwan Center (紐約台灣會館): from l to r, Long-time Flushing activist and former political candidate Ethel Chen (陳道英), Tony Avella, an unidentified young female, and the former Chinese-American Voter Association chief called (phonetic spelling) Mei-Jun Chou (前華人選民協會會長周美君). Also in attendance to support Tony Avella is David Lee who is a representative of Coalition of Supporting NYC Specialize High School.
Person of Interest #1: Jian Li Hou 侯健利 (or, Jianli “Peter” Hou)
John Liu’s Campaign Donor is Allegedly MONEY-LAUDERING the Communist China-Funded Money
The most curious thing that caught the attention of some Chinese gossip is how Jian Li Hou’s fortune suddenly turned for the better on or shortly after 2005. NOTE: Some suggested that the IRS and FBI should audit the Hou family’s tax records and finance records.
Undated photo of Jian Li “Peter” Hou (侯健利).
The curious case of Jian Li “Peter” Hou (侯健利) who is the father of Jia “Jenny” Hou (侯佳). As some of you may know, the Beijing-born (b. 1987 or 1986) Jia “Jenny” Hou was a former Campaign Treasurer for John Liu’s 2009 campaign at the tender age of 22. If her father isn’t a Major Donor & Bundler of John Liu, do you think Jia “Jenny” Hou would have gotten the Campaign Treasurer job for John Liu’s 2009 campaign at age 22 (a very “green”/inexperienced recently college graduate)? Jia “Jenny” Hou was arrested in 2012 and convicted of campaign fraud in 2013. She is temporarily out of Federal prison (on bail) pending her appeals. My focus is not on Ms. Hou per se. I am more interested in her father Jian Li “Peter” Hou.
The following is a Pre- and Post-2005 timeline of the Hou family. The NYC real estate records can be verified with the NYC Dept of Finance.
1986 – Jian Li “Peter” Hou came to the U.S. from Beijing, China in 1986. His daughter Jia “Jenny” Hou was born in Beijing circa 1986 or 1987. She was raised by her grandmother in Beijing per Chinese news media. Apparently, Jia “Jenny” Hou is only a green card holder, not a U.S. citizen.
1994 – Jian Li Hou purchased in 1994 a modest home on 48-18 202nd Street, Bayside NY 11364 (FMV in 2012: in the low $600,000 range), he kept this home in his name until 2007. This modest home was sold in May 2007 for $627,000.
Photo of the Hou family’s original modest home purchased in 1994, at 48-18 202nd Street, Bayside NY 11364
2001 – In 2001, Jian Li Hou purchased a commercial land on 40-50 192nd St, Flushing NY 11358 where his Fire-Safety Business is located – the real estate professionals estimate the FMV (fair market value) of this to be in the low $600,000 market value range.
Jian Li Hou purchased this land at 40-50 192nd St, Flushing NY 11358 for his Fire Safety Business.
Chinese people gossip about the Critical Turning Point Year in 2005. See Jian Li Hou‘s Real Estate Shopping Spree in 2005 and thereafter, making substantial Cash Down Payment and spending large sum of money on renovations. In addition, pumping large sum of money to Chinese-American political candidates, paying for his daughter’s hefty legal bills for Federal Criminal Defense and Appeals.
2005 – Chinese gossip that Jian Li Hou allegedly received big cash injection in 2005 from Communist China to create the mysterious association BJAA-NY in 2005. This gossip may very well be true, if you add up the SUDDEN Real Estate Spending Spree of Papa Hou in 2005 and thereafter. In the same year Hou founded BJAA-NY, Hou and his wife Sui Xiang Zhu bought a $Million Mansion on 63-44 254th St, Little Neck NY 11362 in January 2005 for $1,060,000. The Hou couple took out mortgage for $559,650, which meant they made about 50% downpayment of $500,350 in cash.
Jian Li Hou purchased this Mansion in Little Neck, NY for $1,060,000 in January 2005, the same year he created the mysterious Beijing Association of New York (BJAA-NY). The Mansion’s address is 63-44 254th St, Little Neck NY 11362 – with detached double garage and sun deck, the tree is blocking the actual width of the Mansion. He didn’t need to sell his original modest home bought in 1994 to cover the Half Million $$ downpayment for this Little Neck Mansion. NOTE: the white SUV is a recent model Lexus, and the dark sedan is a recent model BMW parked on the double-driveway.
NOTE: Jian Li Hou did NOT sell his original modest home at 48-18 202nd Street until May 2007. When he bought this $Million house in 2005, he apparently had other sources of cash to meet the Half Million dollar downpayment in cash. He presumably spent about 2 years renovating the $Million dollar Mansion in Little Neck before moving in. Because his campaign donation records BEFORE 2007 listed his address as 48-18 202nd Street. You can bet Papa Hou could not be too cheap on the home renovations if he spent 2 years to renovate the $Million house he brought in Little Neck in 2005, while his original modest home at 48-18 202nd St. had NOT been sold yet BEFORE May 2007. See the interior of this $Million mansion from these Christmas party photos.
NEED YOUR HELP searching Archive Campaign Donation records. If you are a journalist or investigator, you can use FOIL (Freedom of Information Law) or just request archive campaign donation records from NYC agency to verify exactly what year Jian Li Hou, his wife Sui Xiang Zhu (朱穗湘) and his Fire-Safety business “NY Business Fire Systems” (dba: NY Fire, LLC) began donating large sums of money to John Liu and other Chinese-American candidates over the years. My bet is, the bulk of the campaign donation occurred on or after 2005. But I don’t have the manpower or resources to do this.
2006 – In August 2006, Jian Li Hou bought a big corner house at 191-04 42nd Ave, Flushing NY 11358 for $650,000. Mortgage was $400,000. Presumed downpayment in cash for $250,000. NOTE: As stated before, in 2006 Papa Hou apparently had other sources of cash to meet the $250,000 downpayment in cash for this property on 191-04 42nd Ave. Because his original modest home at 48-18 202nd Street was NOT sold until May 2007.
Jian Li Hou bought this big corner house (corner of 42nd Ave and 191 St) in 2006 for $650,000. Again, he didn’t need to sell his original modest home bought in 1994 to cover the $250,000 cash down payment for this corner house. The address of this corner house is 191-04 42nd Ave, Flushing NY 11358.
2008 – The NYC Chinese gossip was that Jian Li Hou seems to have deep involvement in the Summer Olympics in Beijing in 2008. Some say only “highly connected” people had access and deep involvement in the development stages to the 2008 Beijing Olympics events because Communist China wanted total control of this international event. If you are not a member of the Communist Party (whether openly or clandestinely), you simply get shut out of such an important event. And only “highly connected” people have access to the high-ranking officials at the Chinese Consulate Office in New York City. This mysterious Beijing Association of New York (BJAA-NY) and Jian Li Hou have access to both.
2010 – In February 2010, Jian Li Hou bought an apartment at 144-80 Sanford Ave, Unit 4H, Flushing NY 11355 for $252,000 (riding on the Real Estate bargain-hunting during the peak of the Great Recesson). Apparently, no mortgage was taken out for this apartment worth $252,000, paid in cash? This apartment is in the names of Papa Hou, his wife Sui-Xiang Zhu and their daughter Jia “Jenny” Hou.
Photo of the Apartment in downtown Flushing paid in cash $252,000 (no mortgage) in February 2010 by Jian Li Hou at 144-80 Sanford Ave, Unit 4H, Flushing NY 11355.
2011 – On October 12, 2011, the New York Times broke the story about alleged fraud in John Liu’s campaign.
2012 – Papa Hou’s daughter Jia “Jenny” Hou was arrested by the Fed in February, 2012 over campaign fraud allegations.
Somehow in year 2012, between paying expensive hourly fees for prominent lawyer Gerald Lefcourt to defend his then 25-year-old daughter Jia “Jenny” Hou in Federal Court for campaign-fraud charges, paying off several monthly mortgages (see his NYC Real Estate holdings), managing his Fire Safety systems business, Papa Hou finds the “leisure” time to campaign for and donate $$ Thousands of dollars to Yen Chou and various other Chinese-American political candidates in NYC. Papa Hou’s wife Sui-Xiang Zhu donated $2,500 in July 2012 to Yen Chou per NY Campaign Finance records. While Papa Hou (as a corporate donor) donated $4,100 to Yen Chou in June 2012. This man is an amazing juggler, with so much money to spend on expensive legal fees and campaign donations to various candidates.
Fulfilling his “Patriotic China Duty” is apparently more important than his “Father Duty“.
One would think a father would be deeply concerned about his daughter Jenny “Jia” Hou being accused of a Federal felony crime in 2012 punishable by prison and the possible deportation back to China after finishing Federal prison sentence. But no, Papa Hou seemed to have all the confidence in the world that his daughter can beat all the Federal charges. Hence, Papa Hou was out and about daily in 2012, helping with Yen Chou‘s 2012 campaign.
This seemed to fit the NYC Chinese gossip that he received big cash injection from Communist China to nurture and mold Chinese-American political candidates to be loyal to Communist China, therefore he was obligated to fulfill his “Patriotic China” duty rather than his “FATHER” duty.
Not only that, but Papa Hou was heavily involved in 2012 U.S. Elections big or small. Papa Hou was one of the key players in the in the so-called “neutral??“, “non-partisan??” group calling themselves “2012年美國聯邦及地方選舉觀察團” (English translation: The 2012 US Federal & Local Election Observation Group). Their political involvements in this so-called “neutral” and “non-partisan” group was NOTHING BUT. All the major members of this so-called “neutral??” and “non-partisan??” group were major campaign donors of candidate Yen Chou. One of the major donor of Yen Chou who also has very close ties with Jian Li Hou and the BJAA-NY is attorney Hugh H. Mo (see Section 2 for details).
2013 – Jia “Jenny” Hou (along with Xing Wu “Oliver” Pan) were tried and convicted of campaign fraud in May 2013.
Person of Interest #2: Hugh H. Mo 莫虎
Mafia-Cop Protector & Attorney Hugh H. Mo has close ties to John Liu, Jian Li Hou and the mysterious BJAA-NY.
Some Chinese people speculate that Hugh Mo got his initial Communist agent contact as early as 1985 when Hugh Mo was invited by the Beijing Police Dept to visit China in October of 1985. In the same year (1985), Hugh Mo made a huge and fatal mistake to exonerate Mafia Cop Louis Eppolito, allowing Eppolito to commit at least Eight Mafia-related killings. Did Hugh Mo received BIG BRIDE from Mafia Cop in exchange for exonerating him as a “Clean Cop“?
Hugh Mo is one of the major campaign donor/bundler and long-time supporter of John Liu and then-candidate Yen Chou in 2012 and 2008. Hugh Mo and his second wife Yin “Maria” Cheung donate to Chinese-American political candidates as Individual Donors and as Corporate Donor “The Law Firm of Hugh H. Mo”.
PHOTO TAKEN IN CHINA IN 1985: Hugh Mo was invited by the Beijing Police Department to visit Communist China in October 1985. Mo brought his mother, his first wife and his daughter to this China trip.

Who exactly is Hugh Mo? Hugh Mo is listed as a “consultant” at the mysterious Beijing Association of New York (BJAA-NY). See more details below.
Hugh Mo and Jian Li Hou were two key members in the so-called “neutral??“, “non-partisan??” group calling themselves “2012年美國聯邦及地方選舉觀察團” (English translation: The 2012 US Federal & Local Election Observation Group). Despite Hugh Mo and Jian Li Hou being major campaign donors of 2012 candidate Yen Chou, with Hugh Mo‘s wife Yin “Maria” Cheung 張燕 acting as the chairwoman of “Friends of Yen Chou” campaigning daily for Yen Chou. Chinese people say you’ve got to be pretty stupid and ignorant to believe this dubious “Election Observation Group” is neutral ?? and non-partisan ??

In case you are wondering if lawyer Hugh Mo is squeaky clean or not, here is a news article from the NY Daily News dated Oct 14, 2011 on Hugh Mo making excuses not to talk about disgraced Mafia Cop called Louis Eppolito. Louis Eppolito was a “Double Agent” with a full-time NYPD job while moonlighting for the Mafia – the Lucchese crime family to the tune of $4,000 per month (1980’s dollars) for providing highly confidential NYPD and FBI files to the Mafia. Per US Inflation Calculator – $4,000 per month in 1980 = $115,485.44 per month as of June 2014. Nice Mafia salary, after inflation adjustment, it works out to over $1.38 Million annual salary in 2014 dollars. A blogger also wrote in a bit more details about Hugh Mo’s involvement with the Mafia Cop Louis Eppolito.
ALERT: Elizabeth Mo 莫麗 (eldest daughter of Hugh Mo) finally got admitted to NY State Bar in 2012 (at age 30, although she got her law school degree much earlier), and she is currently working at the Manhattan District Attorney office as a lowly-paid prosecutor. Before getting admitted to the NY State Bar, she was working in the MARKETING department in private law firm.
Did Hugh Mo receive BIG BRIBE from Mafia Cop Louis Eppolito in 1985 in exchange for exonerating him?
In case you want to read more about disgraced Mafia ex-cop Louis Eppolito and Stephen Caracappa, read this book: “The Brotherhoods: The True Story of Two Cops Who Murdered for the Mafia” written by Guy Lawson and William Oldham.
And you know what? It was ex-NYPD official and lawyer Hugh Mo (aka: Mafia-Cop Crony/Protector) who made the fatal decision in 1985 to exonerate disgraced Mafia-cop Louis Eppolito of Mafia-linked corruption charges (despite big piles of evidence against Eppolito). Then 10 months after Hugh Mo exonerated Eppolito of corruption charges, Eppolito began participating in at least eight Mafia-ordered killings. A Federal judge Joan M. Azrack made a decision on January 9, 2012 that Hugh Mo is compelled to testify in court regarding his mental state when he made the fatal decision to exonerate disgraced cop Louis Eppolito in 1985. See the Federal judge’s decision in this LINK.
Timeline on Hugh Mo’s “Meteoric Rise” from a Poor Government Lawyer to Riches in a Relatively Short Time
From 1976 to 1984 (age 25 to 33), Hugh Mo (b. Nov. 1951 in China) was a prosecutor at the Manhattan DA’s office (the prosecutor office is NOT known for paying BIG salaries, Mo had a wife Barbara M. Chin (陳美玉)and young daughter Elizabeth (莫麗) (b. Nov. 1982) to support, and the Law School Student Loans are not cheap to repay + potential Undergraduate Student Loans to repay). NOTE: Hugh Mo and his other 3 siblings (1 girl and 3 boys) were raised by a single mother. Hugh Mo definitely did NOT grow up with a wealthy daddy like John Liu did. Actually Hugh Mo’s father died when Mo was still an infant. It is amazing to wonder WHO helped him juggled and paid for so many things during those early years.
From 1984 to 1988 (age 33 to 37), Hugh Mo worked at the NYPD as Trial Commissioner (you have to check his salary back then on City Payroll). Hugh Mo was invited by the Beijing Police Dept to visit China in October 1985. Hugh Mo brought his elderly mother, his first wife Barbara M. Chin (陳美玉) and his then 3-year-old daughter Elizabeth Mo to the China trip.
From 1988 to 1994 (age 37 to 43), Hugh Mo worked at a private law firm until he formed his own law practice in 1994. His first wife Barbara M. Chin (陳美玉) initiated the divorce in 1993. Hugh Mo then married his second wife Yin “Maria” Cheung (張燕) (b. 1960 in China) afterward and have 2 sons Hugh Mo, Jr (莫小虎) (b. 1995) and Douglas Mo (莫龍) (b. 1997) in his second marriage.
In the early 1990’s, Hugh Mo purchased an expensive piece of land in Little Neck, NY and developed the land into an oceanfront single-family house overlooking the Little Neck bay. The address is 122 Arleigh Road, Little Neck, NY 11363 worth more than $1 Million with majectic view. All the neighbors’ home in this oceanfront area are each worth at least $1 Million. Hugh Mo (莫虎) bought a condo apartment for his daughter Elizabeth Mo (莫麗) in July 2012 for $570,000 at 111 Fulton St Apt # 605, New York NY 10038.
Hugh Mo bought this big Mansion in the early 1990s. Address: 122 Arleigh Road, Little Neck, NY 11363. Current FMV in 2014 is over $1.2 Million. Some people gossip and speculate that Hugh Mo took BIG BRIBE from disgraced Mafia Cop Louis Eppolito in exchange for exonerating him from all Mafia-related corruption charges in 1985.
Hugh Mo’s job as a Manhattan prosecutor (1976-1984) and later NYPD Trial Commissioner (1984-1988) attracted Communist China’s attention, seeing him as a viable pawn to use. Again, these are speculations. When you add the fact that Hugh Mo is listed as a “consultant” with the mysterious “BJAA-NY“, with Jian Li Hou as the Founding President of “BJAA-NY“, and with Hugh Mo’s fatal mistake to exonerate Mafia-cop Louis Eppolito who then participated in EIGHT more Mafia-killings, you start to see the connections.
And you may start to wonder about Hugh Mo’s character, just like the Federal Judge Joan A. Azrack made the decision in 2012 to compell Hugh Mo to testify in court regarding his mental state when he decided to exonerate disgraced Mafia-Cop Louis Eppolito in 1985.
Some people believe Hugh Mo wasn’t crazy, speculating that he made the decision to free disgraced Mafia-Cop due to his loyalty to money (as in Mafia-bribery money) or loyalty to another country (Ahem!) to screw U.S.A.
(This Section is Work-in-Progress)
A collection of some absurd and biased NYC Chinese media reporting of John Liu’s election campaign. This section may only be updated once or twice per month since I have to rely on translation help.
Luckily, many NYC Chinese are not stupid. Many recall that if they ONLY read the Chinese World Journal newspaper, they would have been doped into believing that Yen Chou would have beaten Peter Koo in a HUGE landslide in the 2009 City Council election. Likewise, they would also have been doped into believing that Yen Chou would have beaten Ron Kim in the 2012 NY State Assembly election. In case you didn’t know, Yen Chou and John Liu are both financially supported by Jian Li Hou and Hugh Mo. They would also been doped to believe that John Liu would have secured at least 13% of the Mayoral primary votes because there are about 13% Asian population in NYC who just “LOVED?!?!?!” John Liu to death?!?!? Liu actually ONLY received about 7% of the Mayoral primary votes. OUCH, that meant about half of the Asians in NYC do not believe John Liu was fit to run for Mayoral election post-scandal.
FAILURE TO DISCLOSE CONFLICT OF INTEREST: Yen Chou is a major advertising client of the Chinese World Journal (via her Test Prep/Tutoring School). And each year, the World Journal teams up with Yen Chou to organize very expensive “East Coast Ivy League College Tour” for wealthy Chinese teenagers from Mainland China. Likewise, Hugh Mo is a major advertising client of Chinese World Journal (via his private law firm in Chinatown, NY).
BUT, you would NEVER see Chinese World Journal making disclosure about their close business ties with Yen Chou or Hugh Mo. Hence, the Chinese World Journal is compelled to write highly biased election coverage to please their major advertising client and whichever political candidates they support.
