Go get 'em, Dog
My mirth meter just jumped up a few notches. It appears that Democratic archdonor Norman Hsu has skipped his court date and absconded. Nothing says "this was an honest mistake" like jumping bail.
Frank covered much of what needed to be said about this criminal previously. The good part is that now that he is on the run, Hsu will not be buried by some new iteration of the Larry Craig story, or whatever else Democrats would like to focus on. The story officially became sexy, which is very hard to do with campaign finance scandals. Congratulations, Democrats.
Of course, maybe I am just a bit jaded and Democrats will come out in force to demand the head of Hsu and everyone that ever took a check from him, just like they did with Jack Abramoff. There is really no difference between the two, save that sometimes Abramoff shuttled money towards the other party whereas Hsu was straight ticket. That, and Hsu was a wanted fugitive at the time the bulk of his donations were made.
I would assume that the "culture of corruption" label just became extremely bipartisan, except that Republican housecleaning has begun much earlier.
