Hsu was labeled a fugitive after a 1991 grand theft case and a missed court appearance in California. He was then arrested at St. Mary’s hospital after being taken off an Amtrak Train in Grand Junction.

Hsu was a leading money “bundler” for Senator and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. Her campaign is returning $850,000 in contributions linked to him.
