Jury Convicts Hsu Over Fund Raising - WSJ.com: "NEW YORK -- Norman Hsu, a former top fund-raiser for the Democratic Party and convicted Ponzi-scheme operator, was found guilty Tuesday of illegally funneling tens of thousands of dollars to U.S. political candidates.
The conviction marks the finale to Mr. Hsu's unusual rise from a relatively unknown businessman to a prominent fund-raiser who pulled in hundreds of thousands of dollars for Hillary Clinton and other politicians. However, that fund-raising proved to be his downfall after an August 2007 article in The Wall Street Journal raised questions about whether the contributions violated campaign-finance laws."
"In 2007, Mrs. Clinton's presidential campaign agreed to return $850,000 in funds raised through Mr. Hsu. During the trial, the government introduced a voice-mail message of support to Mr. Hsu left by Mrs. Clinton. "What am I going to do with you, Norman? You are working so hard for me," Mrs. Clinton said. "I just don't even know what to say anymore. I've never seen anybody who has been more loyal and more effective and really just having greater success supporting someone than you."
I decided after all to read "Shattered."
