Federal Agencies Unofficially Probing Hsu Scandal Number [At Least] 4
The Wall Street Journal reported nearly two weeks ago that the Department of Justice was investigating Norman Hsu's three-year fundraising bonanza for Hillary Clinton and dozens of other Democrats for possible campaign finance violations.
If it wasn't already, the FBI got involved when Hsu skipped bail last week, thus reclaiming his fugitive status, and is now investigating Hsu's most recent investment schemes, which are beginning to smell remarkably similar to the swindling that earned him his felony conviction back in the early 90s.
When Hsu was discovered "freaking out" on an Amtrak train in Grand Junction, Colorado the day after he disappeared, a Federal Election Commission official wouldn't confirm that the FEC was investigating the Hsu scandal, "as federal law requires any enforcement measures be kept confidential until they are concluded." But for our unofficial score-keeping purposes, let's go ahead and assume they've taken an interest.
And if my SiteMeter logs are any indication, the SEC was in the mix by this afternoon, looking closely at Next Components, one of Hsu's apparently bogus business entities (and one apparently at the center of the possible massive investment fraud sketched out just this morning).
There's no other earthly reason to squander an hour on this site.
