    Do You Know This Guy?
    [​IMG]
    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.
    [​IMG]
    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!
    And then there is possibly Chelsea for president in our future!
    The cycle never ends!

    So much for Bill being every pub's favorite Dem.

    Bringing up this old crap ain't slowing down the Hillary train, folks.

    I never saw that it was ever brought up. Me thinks this needs to be dispersed to various media outlets and perhaps 60 minutes for a little story. The Clintons (both of them) are just downright slimy.

    The "Hillary train" is so old and past its prime that it should be called the pony express. Where would the Clintons be without the fat white liberal media? Bubba would probably be a DJ in MS for an oldies station, which is one step above that of community organizer.

    Resurrecting Bill Clinton as an issue should Hilary be the Democrat nominee in 2016 is a strategy that is almost certain to backfire on the Republicans and the conservative mediaplex. Rather than Monica Lewinsky, allegations of corruption and the impeachment circus, the voters will be more likely to recall that Clinton left office with an unemployment rate well under 5% and the largest budget surpluses in US history.

    A little reminder of unemployment under the Clinton Administration

    Hillary will run to Obama's right and women will rush to the polls to elect the first female prez.

    Sorry, pubs. 8 more years of whining ahead for you.

    I think a good question(s) is whether Biden will be a viable candidate and will Obama back him. The latter might be a huge obstacle for Hillary to overcome.

    She was an effective Senator who worked well across the aisle.
