Who is Ed Mezvinsky?
« on: February 20, 2014, 07:18:57 AM »

    You Know This Guy?



He is Edward "Ed" Mezvinsky, born January 17, 1937.  And so 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 federal criminal 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 many 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 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 over.


And yet liberals say there are no double standards in political reporting.   



And people are already talking about Hillary as our next President!


And then there is possibly Chelsea for president in our future!


The cycle never ends!


Lying and corruption seem to make Democrat candidates more popular.

Yes, we discussed it here. The NY Post was all over the story.  Not bad for two essentially unemployed people:
Chelsea Clinton gets $750,000 break on new condo

Maybe there’s a presidential discount.

Chelsea Clinton and hubby Marc Mezvinksy paid $9,250,000 for a four-bedroom apartment in the celebrity-studded Whitman condominium building on Madison Square Park, city records filed this month show.

That is $1.2 million less than the $10.5 million asking price, and $750,000 below what the building’s other two occupants paid for their 5,000-square-foot units. All three apartments are nearly identical, except that the Clinton-Mezvinsky pad is on a higher floor.

The building also includes a duplex penthouse apartment that’s on the market for $25 million.

NASCAR champ Jeff Gordon plunked down $10 million cash for his condo. Hedge-funder John Silvetz and his wife, model Wilda Deon Bray, also paid $10 million, which was $250,000 less than the asking price for their unit.

The three apartments officially went on sale in February, and went to contract within two months of each other.

Clinton and Mezvinsky purchased the property using a company called Cafema LLC. They took out a $5 million mortgage in addition to a $500,000 line of credit, records show.

The East 26th Street building once belonged to Plumbers Local 1, and was converted to condos by developer David Mitchell. President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton toured the property in early March.

Clinton and Mezvinksy had been living around the corner in a three-bedroom apartment on Fifth Avenue since their 2010 marriage. The apartment was on the market for $4.7 million, and is listed as under contract on the Stribling real estate Web site.

Clinton works as a special correspondent for NBC News, and is studying for a doctorate from Oxford. Mezvinksy, who used to work at Goldman Sachs, started a hedge fund in 2011.

“Marc and Chelsea agreed to buy the apartment last year. As they were the first to do so in the building, they received a discount, as is not uncommon in New York,” a spokesman said.
A day without sunshine is like, you know, night.
