The Fundraising Scandal.....that wasn't.

"For the last 15 years, California authorities have been trying to figure out what happened to a businessman named Norman Hsu, who pleaded no contest to grand theft, agreed to serve up to three years in prison and then seemed to vanish."

But he's been around the whole time raising big cash for Democrats, especially Hillary:

"Since 2004, one Norman Hsu has been carving out a prominent place of honor among Democratic fundraisers. He has funneled hundreds of thousands of dollars in campaign contributions into party coffers, much of it earmarked for presidential hopeful Sen. Hillary
Rodham Clinton of New York."

I know this seems just juicy as it can be, but the truth is the public does not care about things like this. I don't know the legal aspect of this from a campaigning point of view, but I don't think Americans think a candidate should be responsible for the background of a donor, unless it is obvious from the beginning.
