Apparently he didn’t show up for his court date, and that has lead to speculation (by me) that he’s going to head back to China where he should have gone in the early ’90s if he wanted to avoid jail time.
Hsuâ€™s attorney, James Brosnahan, explained that he had lost contact with Hsu and that the financier had failed to deliver his passport as promised.
â€œMr. Hsu is not here and we donâ€™t know where he is,â€ Brosnahan said outside court. â€œWe expected him to be here.â€
Brosnahan told Foiles that a legal assistant for his law firm went to Hsuâ€™s New York City condominium last week and spent 90 minutes searching for Hsuâ€™s passport.
And just in case you’re unaware about the importance of Hsu in Dem circles…
Hsu has donated or raised more than $1 million for Democrats and their causes. He served as a “bundler,” rounding up a group of donors and then packaging their checks together. He is a member of Clinton’s “HillRaiser” group, individuals who pledged to raise more than $100,000 for her presidential campaign.
In other news, Ted Kennedy won’t give back Hsu’s cash.
