Do You Know This Guy?
He is Edward "Ed" Mezvinsky, born January 17, 1937.  
Then you’ll probably say, “Who is Ed Mezvinsky?” 
Well, he is a former Democrat congressman who represented Iowa's 1st congressional district in the United States House of Representatives for two terms, 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 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, Marjorie Margolies-Mezvinsky, then a freshman Democrat in Congress, cast the deciding vote that got President Bill Clinton’s controversial tax package through the House of Representatives.
In March 2001, Mezvinsky was indicted and later pleaded guilty to 31 of 69 counts of bank fraud, mail fraud, and wire fraud.
Ed Mezvinsky 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 80 months in federal prison.
After serving less than five years in federal prison, he was released in April 2008 and remains on federal probation.
To this day, he still owes $9.4 million in restitution to his victims.
About now you are saying, “So what!”
Well, this is Marc and Chelsea Mezvinsky.
That’s right; Ed Mezvinsky is Chelsea Clinton's father-in law.
Now Marc and Chelsea are in their early thirties and purchased a 10.5 million dollar NYC apartment.
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, the news would be an everyday headline and every detail would be reported over and over.
And yet liberals say there are no double standards in political reporting.  
And people are already talking about Hillary as our next President! 

Lying and corruption seem to make Democrat candidates more popular.

When the people fear the government, there is tyranny. When the government fears the people, there is liberty.

Lying and corruption?

Are you sure you want to play that game, Republicans?

No doubt the Mevinsky card is being played now because of Hillary's recent (and incredibly tone-deaf) comments on her wealth.

Hey, I'll say it: nobody in congress really understands poverty and most of them don't even care. That goes for MANY democrats. But I'll also point the finger at ALL Republicans.

Plus about 10 gazillion rightwing blogs, like DeadBreitbart, Drudge, FreeRepublic, etc.

If, somehow, some rightwinger didn't know about this purchase, then they've had their heads buried in the sand. It's also been discussed at a lot of leftwing blogs.

Note: typical rightwing lying hyperbole & victimization.

I'm not a Clinton fan. I knew all of this about Ed Mezvinsky & his relationship with the Clintons, plus his son, who is an "investment banker" marrying Chelsea. I knew all about Chelsea's $10.5 mill apt in NYC because it was reported in various media sources, not just a few rightwing nutbag crybaby blogs.

Mezvinsky is a sleazebag who still owes a lot of money that he embezzled. I believe he's on probation. I don't know much about his son.

As stated, I'm not a Clinton fan and have no plans to vote for HRC. That said, all the sleazy douchebag stuff that Mezvinsky engaged in (and the Clintons most likely benefited from) happens all the time on the right as well.

This credulous RWF has the temerity to whine about Tundra Trash Palin, Grifter Extraordinaire - AS IF Palin isn't just a sleazy & just as much of a rip off artist. That takes some nerve, that does.

I'll stop now. Unless or until I see RWFs engaging in some truth-telling about the sleazy grifters on their side of the aisle, then is just more hypocritical b.s.

My recommendation is to vote what is mis-leadingly call "third" party, and even then, vet the candidates closely.

It's fine to bring this information to peoples' attention. It's up to the individual to decide for themselves how they view Mezvinsky and his relationship with the Clintons & how that may affect their vote.

Why go on about how there's no knowledge of this or it hasn't been reported on? I had forgotten about the Mezvinsky scandal and criminal charges, quite honestly, but with this reminder, I do recall it getting media attention when it happened.

And I have seen plenty in the media about who Chelsea Clinton married, plus details about the cost of her NYC apartment.

What else is there to say? If Jenna Bush married Marc Mezvinsky, there'd be a similar level of media attention paid. Not much more & not much less.

Review the information and make your own decisions accordingly. Stop lying about how it would be so different if it happened to be some conservative in a similar situation. Report on it but pare us your whining.

I'm sure that Chelsea's entire motivation in choosing a husband was to get close to Ed Mezvinsky. No other explanation makes sense.
