    Guess Who?


    Edward "Ed" Mezvinsky, born January 17, 1937, is a former congressman. A Democrat, he represented Iowa's 1st congressional district in the United States House of Representatives for two terms, from 1973 to 1977.


    In March 2001, Mezvinsky was indicted and later pleaded guilty to 31 of 69 charges of bank fraud, mail fraud, and wire fraud. Nearly $10 million was involved in the crimes. Shortly after his indictment, he was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, but the judge at his trial disallowed a mental illness defense. After serving five years in federal prison, he was released in April 2008. He is expected to remain on federal probation until 2011, and owes substantial restitution to his victims.


    Who, exactly is "Ed" Mezvinsky? He's Chelsea Clinton's new father-in-law.


    Nary a mention of this in any of the news media. If the man was a Republican, the news would have replaced the oil spill.


    Imagine if he married one of the Bush twins!!!

    There may already be some scheming going on before the prenuptuals . Transferring of funds has been done in the past .

    In their heyday, Ed Mezvinsky and his then wife Marjorie, herself a former Democratic congresswoman from Pennsylvania as well as an ex-TV reporter, were part of the political and social elite in Philadelphia. The Mezvinskys were close to Bill and Hillary Clinton and were frequent guests at the White House. Prosecutors say Mezvinsky exploited his ties to the Clintons, including his son's relationship with Chelsea, to woo investors to contribute more money to his schemes.

    Owes 9.4 million restitution.

    It is amazing to me that hardly anyone thought Whitewater was proof enough that Hillary Clinton was a criminal. Only another criminal would appoint someone like her to a cabinet position. We are doomed.
