Hsu gets sick, gets caught, one of The Busted Clintonistas

Hsu was arrested in Grand Junction, CO, after he fell ill on an Amtrak train.

Allahpundit says that
The feds are going to drop the interstate fugitive charge against him when they turn him over to California? Huh?
The WaPo highlights how the Clintonistas don't google their contributors:
For many people who crossed paths with Hsu in politics, his disappearance left them wondering whether they ever really knew him. "I think a lot of us are scratching our heads," said Hassan Nemazee, a Clinton fundraiser in New York.
But of course, Hsu's not the only Clinton supporter that got busted this week: Clinton Supporter Arrested in N.J. Corruption Sting
Among the 11 public officials arrested in an F.B.I. corruption sting in New Jersey today was a leading Democratic supporter of Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton's presidential campaign in that state, Mayor Samuel Rivera of Passaic.
Mr. Rivera is one of about 100 members of Mrs. Clinton's Mayors Council, which, according to a campaign press release in July, "will advise the campaign on policy and outreach."
Blake Zeff, a spokesman for the Clinton campaign, just e-mailed to say that Mayor Rivera stepped down from Mrs. Clinton's Mayors Council today.
Will the judges let Hsu out on bail again? The chances are that Rivera will get out on bail, if he isn't already.

We're making progress. As I noted yesterday, the party affiliation is not mentioned when there's a Democrat busted, because that's "The Rule"
If the party is reported, the perpetrator is REPUBLICAN. If there is NO party identification of a bad person, the perpetrator is AUTOMATICALLY A DEMOCRAT.
The Busted Clintonistas - a good name for a rock band. Heck, make that a symphonic orchestra: there are 47 individuals and businesses associated with the Clinton machine who have been convicted of or pleaded guilty to crimes. And that doesn't include the ones still on the lam.

Maybe your dumb ass can connect her to Sen. Craigs toilet escapades as well!

Ah, the whiff of real wit!

But it's not my dumb parts connecting Hillary to Hsu, it's her campaign itself, if you care to read the WaPo - that long arm of the VRWC - article: "The Clinton campaign stood by Hsu until the Los Angeles Times reported his outstanding arrest warrant. At that point, the campaign reversed course, announcing it would donate to charity the $23,000 in direct contributions Hsu made to Clinton's presidential campaign, her Senate reelection bid and her political action committee. The campaign does not plan to return any money Hsu raised from other donors."

As for Craig, good riddance.

It took a lot of spinning to make that NJ situation reflect on Hillary. Out of 11 arrestees, how many are actually named in the news reports? Two. The most prominent local Democrats. What's the party count on the 11? Go to nj.com, and they tell you that 7 are Republican, 4 are Democrats. And of that, ONE is "one of 100" supporting Hillary.

Do you think the fact that Craig was Romney's chairman in Idaho reflects on Mitt? That McCain's Florida chairman was busted in a men's room too? That Rudy's chairman in South Carolina was indicted, and Romney's chairman in Delaware was indicted in the last few weeks?

Actually, it's not good PR, but no, I don't think it does reflect on candidates particularly. And don't be selective.
