Who Is Edward Mezvinsky?

He was born on January 17, 1937.  He is a former Democratic Congressman who represented Iowa’s 1st Congressional District in the United States House of Representative 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 close friends and very politically intertwined for many years.  Edward 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 Representative 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 indicated and later pleaded guilty to 31 of 69 counts of federal criminal bank fraud, mail fraud, and wire fraud.  He also embezzled more that $10 million dollars and was found guilty and sentenced to prison.  He served less than five years of a 80 month sentence. 

He is the father-in-law of Chelsea Clinton, daughter of President Clinton and future Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.  Wouldn’t he make a good relation for the future President of the United States?  Birds of a feather flock together.  May God save us from this massive sin!
