Don't know about you, but I would probably be a bit more selective about the friends I keep if I was to run for office. Clinton to return $850,000 raised by Hsu
Hsu pleaded no contest in 1991 to accusations that he defrauded investors of $1 million. He was facing up to three years in prison when he skipped town before his sentencing in 1992. He finally surrendered to the arrest warrant Aug. 31, but disappeared before last week's hearing where he was expected to turn over his passport and ask a judge to cut his $2 million bail in half.Bail jumping, fraudulent investors as major donors do not exactly show the squeaky clean image the democrats were supposed to portray. But then that is politics as usual down in the (below the) Beltway.
Wolfson said the Clinton campaign was "unaware of Mr. Hsu's decade-plus old warrant," despite what he described as a thorough review of public records.
