Ex-fundraiser for Democrats sentenced
NEW YORK | A wealthy Manhattan investment banker who was once a top fundraiser for Hillary Rodham Clinton and other big-name Democrats was sentenced Thursday to 12 years in prison for bank fraud.
Nemazee was the national finance chairman of Mrs. Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign. He also raised money for Barack Obama and a long list of other prominent Democrats. He was Sen. John Kerry’s New York finance chairman during Massachusetts Democrat’s failed 2004 presidential run.
Prosecutors said Nemazee used fake collateral to obtain more than $290 million in loans from major banks.
An indictment said he forged signatures, concocted bogus account statements and established “virtual offices” to conceal a scam. It said he used proceeds from new loans to pay off older ones - a maneuver prosecutors called a Ponzi scheme.View Entire Story
