More questions for Senator Clinton's fundraising people

An update to yesterday's story: remember Norman Hsu? He's the big-bucks donor to the Clinton campaign who may just be funneling money to the Senator through, er, questionable means. Mr. Hsu is hard to track down. Turns out there's a reason for that. Quote: " A Democratic fundraiser who has raised $1 million for presidential candidate Hillary Clinton says he has done nothing wrong and has asked no favors in return, but Norman Hsu didn't mention that he's a wanted man. A California prosecutor says Hsu pleaded no contest to grand theft, was sentenced to three years in prison and then disappeared, The Los Angeles Times reported Wednesday."

The Clinton campaign may not have done anything wrong here--but they need to keep closer tabs on their donors at the very least. And if it is shown that Clinton knew what was going on here from the get-go, it could and should be a big deal.
