Obama Supreme Court Candidate Took Felon’s Money

Among the prominent Democrats that Hillary Clinton’s convicted Chinese fundraiser generously donated to is a politician on the president’s short list to fill a Supreme Court vacancy.

Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm got nearly $20,000 from felon Norman Hsu, even though he was a fugitive from U.S. justice when the money poured into her coffers. Earlier this month Hsu pleaded guilty to multiple counts of fraud for cheating investors out of $20 million and this week a federal jury in New York convicted him of violating campaign finance laws by making thousands of dollars in illegal contributions to top Democrats.  

While he raised big bucks for the Democratic Party’s most powerful players, Hsu was a fugitive to avoid prison for felony grand theft involving a bogus investment scam he operated in the early 1990s. It didn’t stop heavy hitters like Hillary Clinton from taking nearly $1 million from the corrupt businessman or Michigan’s top elected official from accepting $17,000, more than half of it just last spring. 

Now the 50-year-old politician appears to be an Obama favorite to fill Justice David Souter’s spot on the nation’s high court. Besides taking the tainted money of a convicted felon, the Harvard Law School graduate has a few other skeletons in her closet that can perhaps be viewed as unbefitting a Supreme Court justice. 

In the mid 1990s Granholm, at the time a county attorney in southeastern Michigan, was embroiled in a corruption scheme involving the massive renovation of the Detroit Metropolitan Airport. The powerful county lawmaker who orchestrated the project and was linked to the bidding irregularities was a close ally of Granholm and later as Michigan Attorney General she refused multiple demands to investigate him.  

Granholm also has a history of serious tax delinquency. The government put a lien on her house for failing to file her nanny’s unemployment insurance reports and a separate tax lien was implemented on her inaugural committee for nearly $20,000 in unpaid taxes.
