A Staten Island business owner known for throwing lavish fund-raisers for political candidates was charged with writing $82 million in bad checks — in just two weeks.
Saquib Khan wrote the worthless checks last month, according to Brooklyn federal prosecutors. Khan, 51, was released on $400,000 bail.
He has thrown big-dollar fund-raisers on both sides of the aisle, according to a report in the Staten Island Advance.
The arrest marks a steep fall for Khan, who hosted a $1,000-a-plate dinner for Hillary Clinton’s Senate campaign in 2000 and later threw a cash bash for then-Gov. George Pataki.
