Among the mysteries that continue to enshroud Norman Hsu are the source of his money and the nature of his devotion to Hillary Clinton. But yesterday’s Los Angeles Times provides a Vegas angle and additional insight into the depth of his attachment to the Clinton campaign:
Last year, to celebrate New York Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton’s reelection victory, Norman Hsu capped an amazingly successful year as a Democratic fundraiser by treating members of her campaign staff to several days at the glitzy Mandalay Bay hotel and casino in Las Vegas, complete with free show tickets and dinners at posh restaurants.
Among Hsu’s guests was Patti Solis Doyle, who now heads Clinton’s presidential campaign and has long been one of Clinton’s most trusted advisors.
It was all legal and, Clinton campaign officials say, was typical of Hsu, the kind of thoughtful gesture for which they considered Hsu a treasure.
