Hsu will enter Mesa County Jail tonight
GJSentinel.com ^ | Septembe 13, 2007 | GJ Sentinel.com

Posted on 09/13/2007 6:03:04 AM PDT by libstripper

Fugitive Yung Yuen “Norman” Hsu will be transferred to the Mesa County Jail sometime tonight, Mesa County District Attorney Pete Hautzinger confirmed this afternoon.

Hautzinger said he was told today to be prepared to handle Hsu’s bond-setting hearing Thursday.

Hautzinger said he plans to ask for at least $4 million bond for the wealthy businessman. One day before Hsu was arrested in Grand Junction, he skipped a bond hearing in a San Mateo, Calif., courtroom.

“Given that he failed to appear on a $2 million bond, I have to ask the judge to double that at least,” Hautzinger said.

WTF??? Hsu is a convicted felon, a clear flight risk with plenty of money from undisclosed sources, and has thratened suicide. He shouldn't get any bond at all.

Alright, I got $100 that says he some how mysteriously turns up dead within 48 hours after going into prison.

That’s something that would be inline with previous Clinton associates that had information that could hurt their political aspirations...

Let's all remember Jim McDougall:

McDougal died of a heart attack in federal prison in Fort Worth, Texas. The circumstances of his death remain questionable: he was apparently denied access to his heart medication, and he was placed in solitary confinement without the medication.

A supposed non profit that received a copy of Hsu’s suicide note, the Innocence Project, apparently receive funds from H$U.

A quick search shows the Innocence Project has funding and other connections to George $oreA$$’s Open Society Group.

http://search.yahoo.com/bin/search?fr=ybr_sbc&p=Innocence%20Project%20+%20George%20Soros

Who will be the first brave and good reporter to connect George $oreA$$ to H$U.

Ping me if you find a connection, and I will do the same.

The reply linked by Eroteme below is interesting re these possible connections:

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1895699/posts?page=56#56

About this $40 MILLION loaned to Hsu. Where exactly is it? Where has it gone?

My guess: Foundations and organizations whose existence is to distribute funds in ostensible philanthropy—all of which have decidely liberal and/or activist bent. (And are legally set up to be insulated from disclosure and scrutiny.)

They, in turn, parcel it out to prearranged recipients, perhaps laundering it a final time through a PAC or 527 or grant/donation to another foundation before it lands up at the DNC, DSCC, Clinton Library, ACT, Acorn, etc.

Soft money can be disbursed in huge chunks. I suspect a good forensic audit of some of these foundations and charities and PACS would find a pattern of reciprocity that would boggle the mind. Of course, they’re not subject to such disclosure, which is the whole point.

Hsu’s 40 mil is spread around in ways the press hasn’t even begun to consider—and won’t.

Pakistani charged with illegal donations

WASHINGTON, March 3 (UPI) -- A Pakistani businessman living in California has become a fugitive to avoid prosecution for illegal contributions to prominent Democrats.

Abdul Rehman Jinnah of Los Angeles is believed to have left the country, the Los Angeles Times reports. He has been indicted on charges of setting up straw contributors to political action committees for Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., and Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif.

Jinnah allegedly recruited relatives, friends and employees to donate money to and Clinton, and then reimbursed them.

A federal official told the Times prosecutors had no evidence that the committees knew the contributions were illegal.

Officials for both committees told the Times they did not know about the investigation or the indictments until the newspaper contacted them, and said the committees would not keep the donations.

A legal resident of the United States, Jinnah had a number of businesses, including All America, a cell phone distributor, and a chain of yoghurt shops.

Jinnah hosted fundraisers for Boxer and Clinton. He was also involved in organizing the Pakistani American Leadership Center, which helped form a Congressional Pakistani Caucus.

Not an explicit connection (yet), but this article from June refers to both Soros and Lasry (but in separate contexts) and mentions that “some of the country’s top hedge fund managers helped co-host a fundraiser for Hillary Rodham Clinton in New York” —Curiously, this article has been deep-sixed from YahooNews and I had to find it in a Google cache......


They are the hedge fund managers.

Moneyed to extremes, they operate in a lucrative but little understood corner of the financial world. For politicians, particularly Democrats, they present a conundrum — a deep source of campaign dollars made on business deals at odds with the party’s populist image and policies.

Hedge funds are virtually unregulated, and their wealth represents a vast source of potential tax revenue to meet demands on government spending. Yet the political allegiances — and donations — of hedge fund managers are tilting Democratic, the result of an evolving world view or a sense of self-preservation and real politick.

And so, hedge funds have become a burden and a benefactor in presidential politics. Democrats Chris Dodd and John Edwards have raised the most from hedge fund executives. On Tuesday, some of the country’s top hedge fund managers helped co-host a fundraiser for Hillary Rodham Clinton in New York.

The FBI better move fast to get Hsu out of county jail and put him in protective solitary (from Clinton cronies & Chicoms who want him dead) and on a 24 hour suicide watch.

The CIA and FBI will loose his tongue - and Hsu has much to tell.

CONN. JOB SHOWS NEW YORK PENSION-PROBE PATH NY POST By ANDY SOLTIS September 10, 2007

EXCERPT The suspected pay-to-play pension-fund scheme being investigated in New York bears a striking similarity to a Connecticut kickback scandal a decade ago that landed its state treasurer in prison. In New York, AG Andrew Cuomo and Albany District Attorney David Soares are probing how the state pension fund poured hundreds of millions of dollars into a variety of different investment firms - which in turn paid substantial fees to companies affiliated with former state Comptroller Alan Hevesi's top political consultant, Hank Morris.

Disclosures about the Comptroller's Office, including the disappearance of documents, recall in several stunning parallels the Connecticut scandal that ended with the conviction of eight people, the implication of five investment firms, and a four-year jail sentence for the state treasurer, Paul Silvester.

New York and Connecticut are among the few states that give one person the sole right to decide how to invest the massive pension funds of state workers and retirees. In Connecticut, Silvester had authority over an $18 billion pension fund when he was appointed treasurer by his friend Gov. John Rowland in 1997. Before he was voted out a year later, Silvester steered $500 million to certain private equity firms - after convincing them to pay "finder's fees" to politically connected middlemen. Such fees are often legal, but in Connecticut, part of the fees were illegally kicked back to Silvester.

In New York, investigators are looking into Morris and others who might have received improper benefits. A focus of the probe is whether investment firms that received large sums from Hevesi during 2003 to 2006 were directed to pay "placement fees" to a small Greenwich, Conn., financial-services firm, Searle & Co. The Post reported last month that probers learned that Morris received a large share of at least $13 million in fees given to Searle.

Prosecutors connected the dots by showing how Silvester invested $200 million in a fund run by Triumph Capital Group - which then gave $1 million, disguised as a consulting fee, to Silvester's campaign manager, and another $1 million to a second Silvester associate (and relatives).

The investigation revealed that a Triumph official who steered the payments used a software program called Destroy-It! to erase evidence from his computer. In New York, sensitive state pension-fund documents related to the investigations were destroyed after Hevesi left office in disgrace last January.

Silvester later cooperated with the feds, was the star witness against Triumph, and pleaded guilty to racketeering, bribery and money laundering. His brother and brother-in-law also pleaded guilty to taking part in the kickbacks.

That’s a bet you are very likely to cash. The guy will either find a way to kill himself (of course he will be murdered and it will look like suicide) or something he eats will cause a heart attacks, stroke etc.. they will excuse it as the stress he was under caused the attack...

This whole suicide angle is setting up for his death. I doubt this guy typed the letters and sent them out fex-ex to a bunch of people. Who the hell types a suicide note and sends it out like a freaking wedding invitation to his associates.

As callous as this may seem, if the guy does die, it would shed some very negative light on the PIAPS. It might be a good thing for those trying to stop her. Brings up Foster, Brown, McDougall and all the other convenient deaths.
