Top Democrat fund-raiser for Obama, Hillary arrested
WorldNetDaily ^ | August 25, 2009 | WorldNetDaily

Posted on 08/25/2009 5:16:11 PM PDT by RobinMasters

Hassan Nemazee, a multimillionaire Iranian-American investment banker and top Democratic Party fundraiser, was arrested today by federal law enforcement authorities in New York City and charged with engaging in criminal fraud for his role in arranging a $74 million dollar loan from Citibank, Bloomberg reported.

U.S. Attorney Prett Bharara in New York City and FBI investigators told Dow Jones Newswires the 59-year-old Namazee applied for the Citibank loans for Nemazee Capital Corp. by giving Citibank "numerous documents that purported to establish the existence of accounts in Nemazee's name at various financial institutions containing many hundreds of millions of dollars."

According to the criminal complaint released by Bharara, the accounts Nemazee submitted in the loan documentation were "fraudulent and forged" and "either never existed or had been closed years before Nemazee submitted the documents referencing those accounts."

The criminal complaint alleged Nemazee's fraudulent scheme began in December 2006, when he first approached Citibank to borrow $25 million. He recently raised the sum to $80 million.

Knowing that nothing happens in Dem circles without a reason, Obama must be sending Hillary a serious message.

We have your bag man, he will spill his guts. Keep in line

Hassan Namazee's photos are being rapidly cauterized off the web,so I thought you would like to have him here:

He was known at dem National Headquarters as a "bundler".Looks like he bundled one too many.

Wonder when the voting public is going to notice that the Dem party is really and truly guilty of the corruption they ascribe to the Republican party back in the day when being a Republican actually amounted to having any real influence.

It really is stunning. And to hear his apologists among the cultists, and especially among the statist press corps - truly beyond belief.

It is a bizarre comedy/tragedy of Shakespearean proporations that is unfolding before us daily.

revisiting hillarys capitulation and debt Leading The News Ferraro wants Obama to pay Clinton’s debt By Jordan Fabian Posted: 06/05/08 12:42 PM [ET] Geraldine Ferraro has a plan for Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) to recoup her sizable campaign debt: Have Sen. Barack Obama’s (D-Ill.) fundraisers pick up the tab. After a long primary season, the Clinton campaign’s expenditures have far exceeded the amount of donations it has received so far, and the campaign has accumulated debt of more than $19 million, according to campaign finance reports. Much of that debt consists of unpaid salaries and bills to vendors. When questioned about Clinton fundraisers being asked to join the Obama campaign, Ferraro told The Hill, “These are the people raising hundreds of thousands of dollars. I would hope that [Obama] would do the same thing with his fundraisers to pay off Hillary’s debt.” Ferraro, a former Democratic congresswoman from New York and the Democrats’ 1984 vice presidential candidate, strongly supported Clinton and raised funds for her. http://thehill.com/leading-the-news/ferraro-wants-obama-to-pay-clintons-debt-2008-06-05.html Tue June 24, 2008 Obama asks contributors to help Clinton with debt Sen. Barack Obama has asked top contributors to help his former rival for the Democratic presidential nomination, Sen. Hillary Clinton, retire her debt, an Obama campaign source said Tuesday. Obama did not direct members of his National Finance Committee to contribute to Clinton's campaign, the source said, but asked them to do so if they were so inclined. Clinton suspended her campaign and endorsed Obama for the Democratic presidential nomination this month. She has amassed a campaign debt of about $22 million, but about $12 million of that is money the New York senator loaned to the campaign herself. http://www.cnn.com/2008/POLITICS/06/24/obama.clinton.debt/index.html Dec 4, 2008 11:58 pm US/Pacific Clinton Still Trying To Pay Campaign Debt Campaign '08 Complete Coverage NEW YORK (CBS News) ― Hillary Clinton is still working on erasing her campaign debt and Barack Obama is now asking his list of donors to help her. President-elect Barack Obama's vast list of donors is being asked to donate to Hillary Rodham Clinton as she scrambles to reduce her massive campaign debt before she becomes secretary of state and federal ethics rule limit her fundraising, an Obama adviser said Thursday night. http://cbs5.com/national/hillary.clinton.debt.2.880466.html

The indictment wil have a missing period and be found to be improper. He will have the charges dismissed w/prejudice.
