GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (AP) - Disgraced Democratic fundraiser Norman Hsu (shoo) has been released from a hospital in Grand Junction and is in jail in Mesa County.
Sheriff's officials say Hsu was booked on an outstanding warrant charge from California. An advisement hearing is scheduled for tomorrow (1:30 p.m.).
Hsu has been wanted as a fugitive for missing his sentencing on a 1991 grand theft case to which he had pleaded no contest. He failed to show up for a bail hearing last week in California.
He was placed under arrest last week at St. Mary's Hospital in Grand Junction after being taken off an Amtrak train bound for Chicago.
Unsealed court documents show that an anonymous tipster who told the FBI Hsu was in the emergency room led to his arrest.
Hsu raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for Democratic candidates and groups until his theft conviction came to light.
Many of those candidates -- including Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton -- have announced plans to return or donate Hsu's election contributions to charity.

Tip led to Norman Hsu’s arrest
SAN FRANCISCO - An anonymous tip to the FBI led to the arrest of disgraced Democratic fundraiser Norman Hsu in Colorado, according to recently unsealed court documents.
Hsu had been scheduled to appear in court last week to turn over his passport and discuss reducing the $2 million bail he posted related to a 15-year-old arrest warrant. Instead, he left town and a judge issued a new arrest warrant for him.
Hsu is a Hong Kong native who appeared suddenly in the New York political scene about four years ago spreading hundreds of thousands of dollars in campaign contributions to Democratic candidates around the country.
According to court documents, a tipster on Sept. 6 told the FBI in San Francisco that Hsu was in the emergency room at St. Mary’s Hospital in Grand Junction, Colo.
Hsu is in good condition at the hospital, where he is under guard. He was arrested last Thursday at the hospital after he was taken from an eastbound Amtrak train for treatment of an undisclosed ailment.
Officials said they did not know when he might be released from the hospital and transferred to the county jail.
A spokesman for Hsu said he had not spoken with him.
Hsu raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for Democratic candidates and groups until his 1992 theft conviction, for which he pleaded no contest, came to light. Many of those candidates, including Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, have announced plans to return or donate to charity Hsu’s election contributions.
Hsu had spent 15 years on the lam, until he surrendered to authorities in California Aug. 31.
Prosecutors say Hsu bilked investors out of $1 million by telling them he had a contract to buy and sell latex gloves, but he never purchased the gloves and had no contract to sell them.
Hsu has said he believed he had resolved his legal issues, but that he would halt his work raising political money.
Did they put the boy named Hsu in a men’s or women’s jail?
No orange jump suit?
Hope this doofass has a food taster with him. Could get some aweful substances that might have some deadly results.
The guy is a Patriot Hero — to RED China ! Make talk .
You don’t think FBI already got his beans?
I hear Cabela’s stocks some very fine Blaze Orange coveralls. Maybe the man will stumble himself across a catalog.
DFU...is that you?
Roseman is the FALL guy for the Clintons.

Hsu Leaves Hospital for Jail
This ChiCom dupe is a dead hombre. He can try to cut all the deals that he wants but he will die under Clinton orders. Are there any pools being done on this guy’s expiration date?
Tip to Norman: Don’t have the salad with “Russian dressing.”
Put his attorney who vouched for him in jail as well!
When I grow up, I want to be an anonymous tipster. Or a proctologist. Say, Norm had a lead on a good supply of rubber gloves, right? Hmmm...
