REDWOOD CITY, Calif. (AP) - Democratic fundraiser Norman Hsu failed to appear Wednesday for a bail hearing and a judge issued a new warrant for his arrest. Hsu forfeits the $2 million bail he posted last week. Hsu had been a fugitive in California for 15 years during which time he became a top donor to Democratic candidates, including presidential contenders Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama.
Hsu pleaded no contest in 1991 to a felony count of grand theft, admitting he'd defrauded investors of $1 million in a bogus investment scam. Prosecutors say he was facing up to three years in prison when he skipped town before being sentenced.
Federal Election Commission records show Hsu donated $260,000 to the Democratic Party and candidates since 2004.
(This version CORRECTS Corrects that Hsu forfeits bail, sted bail reduction request.)
The plot sickens
A moose once bit my sister A moose once bit my sister
I betcha Hillary’s got him where she kept the Rose Firm billing records for all those years.
Hmmmmm, do I bet on “fled to China” or suicide/plane crash...
Where is our news media on this? Including Fox? Where is Fox on the trial coming up in California concerning the Clinton’s fraud accusations? Here we have one of the most important trials of the century and every one is quiet. Especially since we have a Presidential election coming up and the Clinton’s are attempting to run for office again. This is crazy....everyone is quiet about it.
sorry about that chief...
We'll learn more about what happened to Tony Soprano than we will about what happened to Mr. Hsu.
Now that he's gone, the MSM will have less of a reason to look into the whole mess.
Another Clinton scandal down the memory hole.
intersting enough but this is featured as breaking news on foxnews.com but nowhwere to be found on either CNN or MSNBC websites.
I’ll be the first.
Just how many breathless news alerts would the MSM be running if it was a Republican donor to any one of the Republican Presidential candidates?
Did you really expect any enemedia to question Hillary about funny money or a felon donor?
I didn’t. It’s up to us to make a fuss about it, to be sure people know. Evidently Fox News had this headline this morning. I hope Rush talks about it, as well. I’m wondering if he got the news yet.
He was recalled to China. Unhealthy levels of lead.
He’s dead, Jim.
He’s resting comfortably, somewhere.
“Another Clinton scandal down the memory hole.” Only if the people let it go down that hole. Pressure needs to be put on this as was done with the immigration bill.
This sure reminds you of Sandy Berger and how he got off. Are Republicans gutless or complicet? And yes, where is FOX News?
Did anyone at all think he wouldn’t run?
LOLOLOL ~~~~~~~~~~~ bets on him already in China?
Unreal ... $2M bail money gone .. the Feds *never* took his passport!!!
John Fund reported 120 folks implicated in the Clinton campaign finance scandals had skipped town ..
****************** make that 121 **********************
What idiot judge even considered bail? This crap has to stop.
