The arrest of Mexican millionaire José Susumo Azano Matsura last year shook San Diego' s political world.
Azano, a businessman, was accused of illegally donating more than half a million dollars to a handful of San Diego politicians. The reasons why a Mexican national would break the law and contribute to local political campaigns was never made completely clear by federal prosecutors.
