Norman, Hilary and Media Silence

What's this all about and why is the main stream media ignoring this issue?

Who Is Hsu? Captured Fundraiser Didn't Vote

Justin Rood Reports:

Mysterious Democratic fundraiser Norman Hsu is in custody again, after a brief return to a fugitive lifestyle he maintained for 15 years. But new questions are cropping up about his past.

The latest puzzle: Despite funneling hundreds of thousands of dollars into Democratic coffers, Norman Hsu is not a member of the Democratic party. In fact, records appear to reflect he isn't even registered to vote.

Hsu's name does not appear on voter rolls in either California, where Hsu lived in the 1980s and early 1990s, or in New York, where he lived more recently, according to documents and state officials.

After news accounts last month exposed the criminal past of the tireless fundraiser, who had donated and raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for Hillary Clinton and a host of other Democratic candidates, Hsu turned himself in -- only to skip out on $2 million bail.

He was nabbed by the FBI in Colorado last night and is being held in federal custody. Officials say he will be returned to California for sentencing.

Hsu, reportedly a naturalized U.S. citizen, would have been eligible to vote, say experts, even after his 1992 conviction on a fraud-related felony charge.

While California and New York state laws bar imprisoned and paroled felons from voting, Hsu was never sentenced for his 1992 felony conviction. Hsu skipped out on his sentencing hearing, returning to court only last week -- before skipping out again.

For those 15 years, "he was in a gray area," said Ryan King, a policy analyst with the nonprofit Sentencing Project, which studies state and federal incarceration policies. According to the laws, "he was eligible to vote until the moment he's sentenced to prison or parole."

Strange details abound in Hsu's biography. Before his trial, Hsu was the victim of a kidnapping reportedly tied to a Chinese gang in the San Francisco bay area. After dodging his 1992 hearing, Hsu is believed to have returned to his native Hong Kong for several years.

Details of his businesses remain sketchy. Upon investigation, many of his recent business addresses appear to be little more than mail drops, despite the thousands of dollars those companies reportedly helped generate for Hsu that bankrolled his donations.

Many donations Hsu harvested for his Democratic politician friends came from people who, like himself, were not registered to vote. Some political finance experts have noted the families did not appear wealthy enough to afford the big-money checks they reportedly wrote to Clinton and others.

Hsu's spokesman did not respond to a request for comment from the Blotter on ABCNews.com. Hsu and the donors have denied wrongdoing and say the donations were all legal. Clinton's campaign said it has donated to charity the money it received directly from Hsu. Many other campaigns have followed suit.

Now in custody, Hsu is being held without bail and facing years behind bars. Once he's sentenced to prison, California will take away his right to the ballot which he apparently never exercised.

In perhaps an ironic twist, the state won't take away his right to make political donations, Ryan said. State law does not prohibit felons from contributing to political campaigns, leaving Hsu free to continue funneling thousands of dollars to candidates and groups of his choice.

"If a candidate wants to accept it, that's a different story," Ryan noted.

What 1 Chinese American says:

This whole Hsu's thing makes me wonder how corruptive and dangerous our political system is in. You look at this crook: He screwed a number of poor chinese with phony scam by milking them one mil and got himself kidnapped. He escaped to HK for few years and back to NYC. The stupid media reports him some kind of successful business man while the address of all his companies are either bogus or mail box number. Is his business legitimate given his criminal background? Is this reasonable for us to suspect where his money and wealthy is coming from? This guy has never been involved political process only until after 2003. He is all of sudden so interested in Democratic Party's cause and turning into huge contributor of Dems. I couldn't believer my eyes this freak donated money dems from all levels, some as low as city coucileman to where he even does reside in.
What is relationship between Hsu and Paw family? How the money thing works in these two? How come a poor mail carrier making postal office wage can write some 200k checks to dems. Interestingly, Paw family does not show any pattern of being politically active, let along democratic party's politics.
Why all these criminal donators (remember Johnny?) are targetting dems?
Can our "journalist" dig into a little deep to see if communist China is behind all these?
All in all, our liberal friends won't be happy. That would cause them 08.
By the way, I am chinese american, I don't buy your liberal non-sense. I do not need a care or AA from government or your party!

What's the point here?

When they found out about him, they donated it to charity.

Their much more to the story. This behavior by Clinton donors has been going on longer than you've been alive.

Why aren't reporters doing their jobs on this story? What textile company is Hsu involved in? IF he's a businessman then what do we know about his companies. This is a big story with a lot of questions. Why can't we learn the facts behind this story? Why aren't we hearing about the bundled money, who did it come from, why isn't Hillary returning the bundled money? I've read that Hsu is here illegally and that the majority of the people Hsu bundled money from are here illegally and like Hsu most have never even voted.

Bush would have never made it into office with out Ennon support and money.

And there are dozens of Bush people connected to Ennon.


That is the story that never got the press it deserved.


Ken Lay died one day
and was cremated the next?

Is there a history of cremation in the Lay family?


No body no autopsy.

If Lay went away for 20-30 years do you think he might have flipped? found Jesus, started giving up some people that did not look out for him?

In that light do you view Norman's recent train ride while on the lam evading authorities, where they found him nearly dead, as a staged/botched suicide attempt by Clinton operatives?

it's impossible for HRC to personaly vet every single doner, and you don't hear her talking about "Kenny-Boy" either.

they donated the money to charity.

what else are they supposed to do?

but keep spinning it as some sort of quid-pro-quo with the MSM, who are all pulling for the girl to win because they all share her communist vision for universal health care achieved through 50% taxation and a weaker military because we need to be nicer to other nations, and you know what, that Bin Laden sure does make a few good points.

and you just *know* the R's are in trouble since they're going back to sobbing and moaning and throwing tantrums about the "mainstream media" like they did in the 1990s.

get some ideas.

And it doesn't happen with any republicans? Give me a break.

They find out about it, they give to charity. What more do you want from them?

This isn't a big story, because the democrats donated the money. I don't see your point here. You keep asking about the money. Your article says they donated it! Where are you going with this?

well, firstly, can you show me where Hillary broke the law? and can you show me where she's responsible when people who donate to her campaign and they've broken the law unbeknownst to her? can you tell me what she would have done differently?

anyway, as for "law and order," that's quite convenient, no? wire-tapping, invading other countries, holding suspects in Gitmo without ever charing them with anything.

the law is whatever Bush feels like suits him best, so don't throw these stones when you've got a sparkling glass house of your own.

It was the lead (column one, top of page) in the Los Angeles Times Newspaper?

also the NY Times is not ignoring

http://www.nytimes.com/2007/09/11/us...ics/11hsu.html

I have also seen it on CNN and MSNBC news channels today

you know how (some) Christians feel they are discriminated against and that someone is out to get them when someone says "happy holidays"?

same thing here.
