No Show Hsu

Norman Hsu, the notorious national Democratic fundraiser, failed to appear in San Mateo County Court this morning, and Judge Robert Foiles issued a no bail bench warrant for his arrest.

“We don’t know where he is as of this moment,” said his attorney Jim Brosnahan. In court this morning he was going to give up his passport and receive a new sentencing date for a 1991 no contest plea to one grand theft charge in an alleged pyramid scheme.

Last Friday, he surrendered to authorities and posted a $2 million cash bail several hours later. “I would imagine he has the capability” to leave the country, said Deputy Attorney General Ralph Sivilla, who is prosecuting the case.
