Do You Know This Guy?



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.
