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 Cmt. that decided the fate of Richard Nixon. He and the Clintons 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.
Nearly $10 million was involved in ponzi schemes and Nigerian e-mail scams.
After serving five years in federal prison, he was released in April 2008. He is expected to remain on federal probation until 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 one of Sarah Palin's daughters, father-in- law, the news would have replaced the oil spill.
And some say there is no double standard.... sure there isn't!!
