Local Democratic fundraiser sentenced to 24 years

Norman Hsu, the former Democratic fundraiser from San Mateo County, was sentenced to more than 24 years in prison Tuesday for fraud and breaking campaign finance laws. The judge said Hsu stole more than $50 million from hundreds of investors during a 10-year scheme, which collapsed in 2007. During her presidential campaign, Hillary Clinton returned more than $800,000 to donors linked to Hsu.
