Who is Ed Mezvinsky?
Edward "Ed" Mezvinsky born January 17, 1937, is a
former Democrat congressman. As a Democrat, he
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 and the Clinton's were very politically
intertwined for years.
In March 2001, Mezvinsky was indicted and later
pleaded guilty to 31 of 69 charges of bank fraud, mail
fraud, and wire fraud. He was sentenced to 80
months in (Federal) prison. Ed
Mezvinsky embezzled more than $10 million dollars from
people via both a ponzi scheme and the
notorious Nigerian e-mail scams.
After serving five years in federal prison, he was
released in April 2008. He remained on federal
probation through 2011, and still owes $9.4 million in
restitution to his victims.
So who is he?
He's Chelsea Clinton's father-in law!
Has anyone heard mention 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 every day headline.
Some say there are no double standards in politics . .
s-u-r-e there aren't! <sic>
