California - (Ass mess): A Democratic Party fun raiser and major Hillary Clinton campaign donor is a fugitive from justice.
According to California prosecutor Ronald Smetana, Norman Hsu's million-dollar raising campaign contribution may have to be returned because Hsu has been sentenced to three years for grand theft before doing a Houdini vanishing act.
The California state attorney general's prosecutor said today that Hsu pleaded guilty in 1991 to grand theft after raising $1 million in investments for a corrupt scam "and then did a runner, leaving behind a bankrupcy avoidance mess than ruined hundreds of poor families who'd been taken in by his charm and wit."
There has been no word from Hillary Clinton's campaign team today about the money they have received from Hsu.
To be fair however, 2004 Democratic hopeful John JKerry also received a sackfull of $$$$ from Hsu and ok's his listing in the current party rankings for the top 20 donors who have goven in excess of $100,000.
Meanwhile in California Mr Smetana is due to hold a press conference to outline more juicy tidbits that may be of interest to borth the Dems' and GOP candidates.
"This is the way the first dominos begin to fall," a state prosecutor's office source laughed today.
