In anticipation of the fraud trial for mayoral candidate John Liu's former campaign treasurer and a former fundraiser, attorneys for the defense removed Liu from their witness list.

In January, attorneys for Liu's former fundraiser, Oliver Pan, put the comptroller on their potential list of witnesses.

The removal of the comptroller comes after attorneys said in court this week that media coverage of numerous political corruption scandals engulfing the state could taint their jury pool.

The trial starts on Monday.
