Suicide Letter Emerges As Democratic Fundraiser Case Takes Strange Twist

There's a new twist in the case of a scandal-plagued political fundraiser with ties to Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Now, there's word that Norman Hsu mailed out a suicide note last week.

A person who saw the letter and wishes to remain anonymous tells The Associated Press the letter was sent to the legal organization The Innocence Project. And, the source says the letter explicitly stated that Hsu intended to commit suicide.

Hsu was labeled a fugitive after a 1991 grand theft case and a missed court appearance last week in California. He was then arrested at a Colorado hospital after being taken off an Amtrak train. His lawyer says his client will waive extradition to face sentencing in California.

Hsu was a leading money "bundler" for Clinton. Her campaign is returning $850,000 in contributions linked to him.
