So Who is Ed Mezvinsky?

Who is Edward "Ed" Mezvinsky? Interesting question.

Ed Mezvinsky is a former Democratic congressman from Iowa's 1st congressional district. He served two terms in the House of Representatives 1973-1977. He sat on the House Judiciary Committee that decided Richard Nixon's fate as president. It was Mizvinsky who called Nixon a crook and a disgrace to politics and said that he should be impeached.

He grew up in Ames, Iowa, the son of Abe Mezvinsky, a Jewish grocery store owner. Ed played football at Ames High School and was all state.

Mezvinsky had an affair with NBC news reporter Marjorie Sue Margolies and after his wife learned of it and divorced him, he went on to marry Margolies in 1975. She served in congress and in 1975, the same year she and Ed married, cast the deciding vote that got Bill Clinton's controversial tax package through the House. How lucky for Bill that they were friends.

Ed and the Clintons have been good friends for years.

In 2001, Ed was indicted and plead guilty to 31 of 69 counts of bank fraud, mail fraud, and wire fraud. He embezzled more than $10 million in a Ponzi scheme and was also involved in the Nigerian email scams. For all we know, he might have actually been that Nigerian prince who was going to make you rich. Yeah, sure.

Mazvinsky was found guilty and sentenced to 80 months in a federal prison. Instead of serving the full sentence, Ed was out of the slammer in under 5 years, having been released in April 2008. He came off of probation in 2011. 

Ed still owes about $9.4 million in victim restitution and there appears to be no plans to repay the money to the "suckers."

In 2010, Marc Mezvinsky married Chelsea Clinton, the daughter of Bill and Hillary Clinton.  The wedding took place at the mansion of George Soros, the billionaire socialist and huge Democratic campaign funder. The couple bought a $10.5 million New York City apartment soon after their union.

It appears that both Chelsea and Marc have morally challenged fathers (as well as Chelsea's morally challenged mother). So it seems fairly obvious that Chelsea will one day be a viable Democratic candidate for the US Presidency if she decides to run.

There is something horribly wrong with this picture.
