Norman Hsu, Democrat “rain-maker” or fund raiser, surrendered to authorities in San Mateo, California today to face grand theft charges. This is the third questionable donor to fall from grace after contributing to Hillary Clinton and other Democrat campaign funds. Can you say “Culture of Corruption?” — Yes, I thought you could! Now where did I put my sweater and loafers….
UPDATE:::: Federal Probe of Hsu Fundraising…
From The San Jose Mercury News, a paper I used to peruse as a child in Monterey:
A top Democratic fundraiser wanted as a fugitive in California turned himself in today to face a grand theft charge.
San Mateo County Superior Court Judge H. James Ellis ordered Norman Hsu handcuffed and held on $2 million bond. A bail hearing was scheduled for Sept. 5, at which the judge will consider reducing his bail to $1 million.
Hsu appeared in court accompanied by a lawyer and publicist, both of whom declined to say whether the New York apparel executive would immediately post bail. A warrant was issued for his arrest after he skipped the sentencing for a 1991 grand theft charge.
In the ensuing years, Hsu became a top donor to numerous Democratic candidates, including presidential contenders Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton and Sen. Barack Obama.

The LA times also has an article that goes into much depth on Norman Hsu’s background, I recommend a read.
Final note: At whose urging did Hsu Surrender? I picture someone circling overhead with a trail of smoke screeching “I’ll get you Hsu — and your little dog too!”
