The Los Angeles times reports on Norman Hsu, fugitive from the law and a great fundraiser for Hillary Clinton and other Democrat party candidates. From the LA Times:
For the last 15 years, California authorities have been trying to figure out what happened to a businessman named Norman Hsu, who pleaded no contest to grand theft, agreed to serve up to three years in prison and then seemed to vanish.
“He is a fugitive,” Ronald Smetana, who handled the case for the state attorney general, said in an interview. “Do you know where he is?”
Hsu, it seems, has been hiding in plain sight, at least for the last three years.
Since 2004, one Norman Hsu has been carving out a prominent place of honor among Democratic fundraisers. He has funneled hundreds of thousands of dollars in campaign contributions into party coffers, much of it earmarked for presidential hopeful Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York.
I’ve previously reported on two other questionable donors, but the LA Times fails to string those together with the current story, hardly an unintentional oversight as they’ve reported the stories on the other illegal contributions, and donors with questionable business practices.
UPDATE: Boxer and Feinstein also giving back contributions from Paw and Hsu. Video from Fox News;

So…. let’s add Norman Hsu to the list, and keep watching. Grab a bowl of popcorn, this is getting interesting.
