Hsu Suicide Note Blames Obama for Scandal.
OMG!!! this is hillarious. Hsu is blaming Obama for his scandal and it tells me Hsu must have tried suicide by Koolaid.
This just gets stranger and stranger.




On the day he disappeared, Norman Hsu, the disgraced fundraiser for Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's presidential campaign, sent letters to friends that recipients viewed as a suicide note, people familiar with the letter have said.

In his letter, Hsu apologized for any embarrassment he had caused recipients of his largesse. In the last four years, he has generated donations of more than $1 million for Democratic politicians across the country.

Hsu's undoing began two weeks ago with articles raising questions about his fundraising activities in the Wall Street Journal and about a criminal case in his past in The Times. In his letter, said a person familiar with its contents who asked to remain anonymous, Hsu contended that those articles were planted "by a politician who pledged 'hope and change' " -- an apparent reference to Sen. Barack Obama, Clinton's main rival for the Democratic presidential nomination.

"This is a sad and baseless allegation," Obama spokesman Bill Burton said. "We had no knowledge of his past criminal behavior, fugitive status or a potential straw-donor scheme until reading it in the newspaper."

Hsu's troubles date to 1992 when he disappeared rather than face up to three years in state prison on the grand theft conviction involving what prosecutors termed a Ponzi scheme. Despite the warrant for his arrest, he emerged a decade later as a wealthy bicoastal businessman in the apparel trade and benefactor to Democratic causes and candidates.
