Ed Rendell, Profile in Courage.

Gov. Ed Rendell this afternoon defended his decision to keep a $40,000 donation from a prominent Democratic fundraiser who is wanted on a felony fraud charge in California, saying he will only return the charges against him are sustained.


In a conference call with reporters, Rendell said fund-raiser Norman Hsu “gave me that money legally. He hasn’t been convicted of anything … We’ll see what the court system does. If the court sustains it, we’ll give it back.”


The Los Angeles Times reported this week that Hsu appeared to be a fugitive from justice in California.
