Norman Hsu Posts $2 Million Bond
Bump and Update: Norman Hsu has made his $2 million bond.
Norman Hsu Surrenders, Held on $2 Million Bail
Democratic contributor and bundler Norman Hsu has turned himself in on the California Arrest Warrant. Bond is $2 million (the amount on the outstanding warrant) and a hearing will be held Sept. 5 at which the Judge may reduce it to $1 million.
I won't be surprised if he bonds out today on the $2 million. Then again, maybe he'd rather do a holiday weekend in jail than fork over an extra mil.
He went to court with his California attorney and his publicist. He's got a great lawyer, James Brosnahan. Brosnahan's last high profile client was "American Taliban" John Walker Lindh.
More of Hsu's political donations are being returned:
New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer donated $62,000, the amount he got from Hsu, to charity. Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, who received $1,000, and San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom, who received $1,250, also were turning their money over to charity, their aides said.
Why don't the candidates send the donations to the court to be used for his bond? After all, it was his money he donated.
