Alan Fabian, a corporate executive from Cockeysville, Maryland, is one of Mitt Romney's most important bundlers - a former George W. Bush "Ranger" (meaning he collected over $200,000 for Dubya's campaign), now helping to gather contributions for the Romney campaign. Chris Cillizza calls these top-level bundlers "whales," and if you scroll down, you'll see Fabian's name listed.

He's also, according to Federal prosecutors in Maryland, a big-time fraudster:

A federal grand jury indicted a corporate executive who allegedly ran a scheme to make $32 million in false purchases of computer equipment, spending the money instead on beach real estate and private jet travel, prosecutors said Thursday.

Alan B. Fabian, 43, of Cockeysville, is charged in a 23-count indictment with mail fraud, money laundering, bankruptcy fraud, perjury and obstruction of justice. The grand jury handed up the indictment Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Baltimore and it was unsealed Thursday.
