Name that Party: "NY Businessman" Hassan Nemazee Arrested for $74 Million Bank Fraud Against Citigroup

This is a big deal, but not just for the reasons you think:

U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara in Manhattan and the Federal Bureau of Investigations say Hassan Nemazee, with residences in Manhattan and Katonah, N.Y., fraudulently applied for the loans for Nemazee Capital Corp., of which he is chairman and chief executive.

Federal prosecutors contend Nemazee obtained the money by giving the banking giant "numerous documents that purported to establish the existence of accounts in Nemazee's name at various financial institutions containing many hundreds of millions of dollars," the Justice Department said in a statement. "In fact, those were fraudulent and forged documents."

Do you know what's not in the CNN article? Or this Reuters one? Or this AP one?

A crucial detail from Nemazee's bio:

National Finance Chair - Hillary Clinton for President, 2008
National Finance Chair - Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC)
New York Finance Chair - John Kerry for President 2002 -2004

He was also nominated by President Clinton to be U.S. Ambassador to Argentina.
