Then there's Norman Hsu, who brought in over $850,000 to Hillary's campaign after returning to the US following his flight to evade a fraud conviction (Hsu was subsequently rearrested, sentenced to three years, and is facing further federal charges).

Did you guys know that from Omaha, Robert Wadman went to North Carolina and was Police Chief in Wilmington?
A lot of movies are filmed in Wilmington, NC and they filmed "The Crow" there. Wadman closed (inotherwords it was all kept secret) the investigation into the death of Jason Lee who was shot during the filming.
It was ruled n accident but some thought there was something weird about it.
