ABC7 San Francisco was able to track down Raymond Kwok Chow, alias “Shrimp Boy,” this week. Shrimp Boy was an associate of Hsu’s and was later busted for running a child prostitution ring. He was in the front seat of the car the day that Hsu said he was being kidnapped by Chinese gang members, via Bryan at HotAir:

Hsu is the man who skipped out on two million dollars bail in San Mateo County Wednesday, only to be rearrested last night in Colorado, where he’s now in the hospital.
He’s been on the run for 12 years.
Hsu rubbed shoulders with the powerful and notorious as well.
Raymond Kwok Chow, alias “Shrimp Boy,” is one of Hsu’s known associates.
He was notorious gangster in Chinatown in the early 1990’s, at roughly the same time when state prosecutors say Norman Hsu started his ponzi scheme with his latex gloves business.
Chow says he is now clean, and spoke with us about his relationship with Norman Hsu.
Chow dressed brazenly in white at the funeral of Allen Leung, the Chinatown business leader shot to death last year.
Chow was once one of the most feared gangsters in Chinatown.
“I grow up in crime. I grow up in the city and involved with the most crime,” said Chow.
In the 1980’s and early 1990’s, San Francisco’s Chinatown was the battleground of a bloody war between powerful gangs.
Chow’s gang “Wo Hop To” finally won.
This was when Chow says he met Norman Hsu. He says Hsu dabbled in clothing, import and export and real estate. He adds Hsu was also in trouble.
“I guess he into a lot of financial problem back then and I loaned him some money,” said Chow. “And I help him with my knowledge and with my strength. That’s all there is.”
In the early hours of August 28, 1990, Foster City Police stopped a car for making an illegal turn.
In the back seat, they found a frightened Norman Hsu. In the front were Raymond Chow and two associates.
Hsu told police he had been kidnapped.
“There was a 12 hour ordeal where there was discussions, arguments. Mr. Hsu claims he was assaulted several times and threatened,” said Capt. Matt Martell, Foster City Police Department.
Hsu told police he had business dealings with Chow and there was a dispute over money.
“And what that dollar amount was, different dollar amounts ranged between $300,000 and a $1 million worth of claims,” said Capt. Martell
Chow says Hsu lied, and claims it was Hsu who called him for help that night because he owed people money…
Chow is now the chairman of the Chinese Freemasons, the position Allen Leung held before he was killed.
Despite his bust for running a child prostitution ring, “Shrimp Boy” was given an award by the City of San Francisco last year.
Raymond “Shrimp Boy” Chow and his tong are the proud recipients of an official certificate of honor from the city, an award arranged by Supervisor and state Assembly candidate Fiona Ma.
This is the same Raymond Chow who was active in a Chinatown tong called Hop Sing until he and two dozen others were indicted in 1992 on racketeering charges for their alleged involvement in everything from underage prostitution to the international heroin trade.
The New York Times put a few more pieces together today on the Norman Hsu money trail. It is still not clear where all of the hundreds of thousands of dollars given to the democrats came from originally.
