One would think that a Democratic fundraiser fugitive that was involved with one of the prominate Democrats running for President was sentenced to three years for Fraud it would be newsworthy. However, CNN not only buried it behind all the post-Iowa ruckus, but also neglected to mention which candidate(s) the disgraced Hsu donated and fundraised. That would be Hillary Clinton.
A former fugitive captured in Colorado has been sentenced to three years in prison — after a judge rejected his bid to throw out a 16-year-old fraud conviction.
Attorneys for disgraced political donor Norman Hsu had asked Judge Stephen Hall to dismiss his 1992 no-contest plea, saying Hsu’s right to a speedy trial was violated because authorities were not actively pursuing him during his years as a fugitive.
Hsu’s lawyers said authorities could easily have arrested Hsu at one of the political fundraisers he hosted.
Hsu fled California before being sentenced in the 1992 case. He turned himself in August 31, then fled again.
He was recaptured in Grand Junction, Colorado, in September after trying to kill himself by overdosing on drugs aboard an Amtrak train.
I guess we should feel lucky the mentioned the party affiliation in the title.
