He is a former US Democrat congressman who represented Iowa’s 1st congressional district in the United States House of Representatives from 1973 to 1977.
He sat on the House Judiciary Committee that decided the fate of Richard Nixon.
He was outspoken saying that Nixon was a crook and a disgrace to politics and the nation and should be impeached.
He and the Clintons were close friends and very politically intertwined for many years.
Ed Mezvinsky had an affair with NBC News reporter Marjorie Sue Margolies and later married her after his wife divorced him.
In 1993, the new wife Marjorie Margolies-Mezvinsky left NBC and became an elected Democrat member in the US Congress. She cast the deciding vote that
got President Bill Clinton’s controversial tax package through the House of Representatives.
In March 2001, Ed Mezvinsky was indicted and later pleaded guilty to 31 of 69 counts of bank fraud, mail fraud, and wire fraud.
He embezzled more than $10 million dollars from people via both a Ponzi scheme and the notorious Nigerian e-mail scams.
He was found guilty and sentenced to 7 years in federal prison.
After serving less than four years, he was released in April 2008 and remains on federal probation.
To this day, he still owes $9.4 million in court ordered (but unpaid) restitution to his victims.
About now you are saying, “So what?”
That’s right; Marc is Ed Mezvinsky son and he’s now Chelsea Clinton’s father-in law.
Marc and Chelsea are in their early thirties and purchased a $10.5 million NYC apartment (after being married in George Soros’ mansion).
Marc, has just lost 90% of the funds in the hedge fund he manages. It has been alleged that he skimmed off the last $50 mil and shut it down
returning around 10 cents in the dollar to investors. Investigations have begun.
Has anyone heard mention of any of this in any of the media?
If this guy was Jenna or Barbara Bush’s, or better yet, Sarah Palin’s daughter’s father-in- law – or Donald Trump’s family –
the news would be an everyday headline and every detail would be extravagantly reported.
And yet, many say there are no double standards in political reporting in today’s media.
And there is already talk amongst the US political elite about the next in the Clinton dynasty – Chelsea – as a future President!
Chelsea Clinton earned $600,000 a year when working for NBC and now works for the Clinton Foundation and sits on quite a few boards.
Her annual earnings are now suggested at $1.7 m.
The cycle never ends.
