A federal judge sentenced Norman Hsu, a Democratic fund-raiser and admitted Ponzi scheme operator who used tenuous connections to the fashion world as social capital, to more than 24 years in prison Tuesday.
In May, Hsu pleaded guilty to 10 counts of mail and wire fraud for running what prosecutors called a $50 million Ponzi scheme. Later that month, a jury convicted him on four separate charges of campaign finance fraud after a six-day trial.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
