Mac Rich all over again:

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.

"He is a fugitive," Ronald Smetana, who handled the case for the state attorney general, said in an interview. "Do you know where he is?"

Hsu, it seems, has been hiding in plain sight, at least for the last three years. …

On Tuesday, E. Lawrence Barcella Jr. — a Washington lawyer who represents the Democratic fundraiser — confirmed that Hsu was the same man who was involved in the California case. Barcella said his client did not remember pleading to a criminal charge and facing the prospect of jail time. Hsu remembers the episode as part of a settlement with creditors when he also went through bankruptcy, Barcella said.

And somehow this man has eluded authorities while hiding among the Democrats.  Now we all know that if you get caught up in something and find yourself off to jail all  you have to do is gather checks from people and give to the Democrats.  Simple as that.

And what did this particular criminal Democrat fundraiser do to get himself sentenced to jail?  He gathered a million bucks from investors supposedly to buy latex gloves for resale, but when the time came to resale the gloves…..the gloves were no where to be found.  And so was Hsu.

I love it.

The big story isn’t the bribery by a criminal to a Presidential contender.  No, the real story is a Republican putting a duffle bag in front of a bathroom stall.  And you can see the difference between the two parties here.  The Republican pleads guilty to disorderly conduct (when nothing disorderly happened) but the Democrat steals one million bucks from investors, hides the money, claims bankruptcy, sends the money off to little folk from coast to coast and then funnels it back to the Democrats.  All the while hiding from the police.  And when confronted has a memory loss:

Barcella said his client did not remember pleading to a criminal charge and facing the prospect of jail time. Hsu remembers the episode as part of a settlement with creditors when he also went through bankruptcy, Barcella said.

But I tell you what, the glove story as all the earmarks of a photo caption contest don’t you think?
