NEW YORK — A federal judge has sentenced former Democratic fundraiser Norman Hsu (shoo) to more than 24 years in prison for violating campaign finance laws.
Hsu was sentenced Tuesday at a federal court in Manhattan.
His donations became an embarrassment for Hillary Rodham Clinton’s presidential campaign. His arrest led Clinton to return more than $800,000 to donors linked to Hsu.
Prosecutors say Hsu obtained millions of dollars from investors by claiming clothing or high-technology ventures would pay returns of 14 and 20 percent. Instead, he spent the money on himself.
Hsu’s decade-long Ponzi scheme collapsed in September 2007.

Maddow breaks additional evidence in the case of a Census worker found lynched in Kentucky –
The pregnant elephant of a question here is whether this man’s killing had anything to do with the right-wing crazies that have been enticed out of the woodwork by the Republicans Party and their propaganda outlet, Faux News. We have a similar circumstance in 1994 with the Murrah bombing by Timothy McVeigh in Oklahoma, fueled and abetted by the over the top hate Americans rhetoric of the very same right wing outlets and propagandists.
None dare call it… Treason.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Bank of America Corp. is suspending its work with the housing affiliate of embattled community organizing group ACORN. The decision comes as three Republicans in Congress ask Bank of America and 13 other financial institutions to give Congress a complete accounting of their dealings with the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now or its affiliates.
In a statement, Bank of America said it would not enter into any further agreements with ACORN Housing Corp. until the bank is satisfied all issues have been resolved. ACORN Housing Corp. and Bank of America have worked together for years on mortgage foreclosure issues.
You will have to excuse me on this one, but this is like Bernie Madoff calling your local WallMart Shoplifter who has been caught…
Bank of America, as the largest US Bank – stole a goodly part of the $38 BILLION collected from consumers last year in “Overdraft fees” on their checking accounts by banks. Overdraft fees, which were often manipulated into existence – by the bank. And that doesn’t even get into the predatory sub-prime lending of some of their subsidiaries.

OK – I’m going to go there, to the playground of black conservative race pimps…
I’m sure this one is STORY ONE, not only on every single black conservative site, every white supremacist site, and good majority of the the bleeding hearts black folks sites…
So why go there?
Simple. More black babies will die in Chicago due to inadequate, unavailable, or poor neo-natal and post natal care in the first year of their lives than are killed by these street thugs.
So where’s the outrage?
The yearly murder rate for young black males was 152 for every 100,000 people (between the ages of 14 and 29) between 1987 and 1989. Hispanic males were slain at the rate of 102 per 100,000, six times the 17 per 100,000 rate of whites that age.
According to a 2006 report from the Chicago Department of Public Health, the infant mortality rate (from birth to 1 year old) in Chicago stood well above the national rate at 9.6 deaths per 1,000. That converts to a figure of 960 per 100,000. When you add in the number of babies who die before they are born – that number doubles.
The next argument you are going to hear from black conservative race pimps is that we are in a “crime wave”. That’s a crock as well.
According to U.S. Census data, the number of blacks aged 15 to 19 rose by about 15 percent between 2000 and 2007.
So even if any individual black teen’s propensity for crime was unchanged over this time period, the aggregate amount of black-teen crime would have risen by 15 percent. In other words… just based on changes in population, the number of perpetrators would have been expected to rise from a little over 800 to nearly 1,000. Knowing that, the actual rise to roughly 1,150 doesn’t seem that noteworthy.
The Mortality rate for teens – 15-19 in Wyoming, 85 per 100,000 due to automabile accidents, the majority of which are fouled by DUI is the same as the black murder rate in Chicago for the same age group.
The crack epidemic, fueled by the availability of cheap crack cocaine was a crime epidemic – not what is going on today.
Now, to make the conservative race baiters happy – there is this video –
This thug officer has been fired, and charged with 4th Degree Assault, and is on trial currently…
Just like the black thugs who murdered Darrian Albert.
Real SOB when the system works like it’s supposed to in getting criminals off the streets, or off our Police Forces.
Now, about reopening Devil’s Island…
One of the bittersweet legacies of slavery in the black community is the giving of names to children. Social psychologists believe it started as a way to at least assert some control over slaves lives in a era when slaves didn’t normally have last names. A gifting of a small “uniqueness”, in a world where black people were seen as chattel.
Along the way, black mothers have created a number of distinct, and sometimes unique “black” names.
Folks my age remember way too much employment discrimination during the 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s to feel quite comfortable with the new job hunting techniques such as visual resumes and social networking. Potential employers, through medical databases, background checks, and credit bureaus have way too much power and ability to potentially discriminate as it is.
The prospect of giving them even more information opens the door to some truly frightening abuses.
Youth unemployment today is at it’s highest level since the Great Depression, 52%. Unemployment in some cities is pushing 20%. White Collar unemployment, for people with College Degrees and demonstrated skills is over 7%.
Many companies now use search engines and sophisticated software to parse through potential candidates. The simplest of these programs search for “keywords” such as accreditations sponsored by outside companies or organizations. These might include for instance a network certification for someone looking for an IT job or a finance certification from someone looking for a job in the financial services industry. The negative trade off of this is that these tools discount real on-the-job experience in favor of certifications. But these are gatekeeper hurdles faced by all job seekers. There are “special” hurdles for black job seekers…
