Democratic Fundraiser Turns Himself In

Norman Hsu, Democrat fundraiser extraordinaire, turned himself in to authorities in San Mateo. Bail was set at $2 million and Hsu briefly saw the inside of a jail cell. He was back on the street in minutes.

He's hired James Brosnahan, a stellar defense attorney based in San Fransisco. Brosnahan is known most recently for unsuccessfully defending John Walker Lindh.

Other Democrats have followed Clinton's lead in giving away Hsu's donations:

Hsu was involved in state and local politics as well. New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer donated $62,000, the amount he got from Hsu, to charity. Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, who received $1,000, and San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom, who received $1,250, also were turning their money over to charity, their aides said.

I knew this guy was big, but I didn't realize just how connected he was to Democrats at all levels of government.
