Democratic fundraiser Norman Hsu to be indicted in Southern District of New York today, according to reports, on fraud and campaign finance charges.
I'll be interested in looking at the indictment to see if it can be determined when the feds' investigation started. The Wall Street Journal article that first reported on Hsu's suspicious campaign finance activity ran at the end of August. That is what appears to have sparked the investigation. If so, I don't recall the last time I saw a white collar criminal case go from launch of investigation to indictments in less than a month. Perhaps some of our federal criminal lawyer-readers can enlighten us.
Late Update: The AP is now reporting that prosecutors will unseal a criminal complaint, not an indictment.
