Skip to comments.Facts about Chelsea's new husband's father not being covered by the MSM......
Posted on 08/01/2010 11:18:44 AM PDT by Red in Blue PA
He comes from a crooked family. His father stole at least $10 Million from investors and still owes at least $9.4 Million.
I guess birds of a feather......
In 2001, he was convicted of several dozen charges of fraud. He was released from federal prison in 2008. However, he remains on federal probation and still owes almost $9.4 million in restitution to his victims.
FGS this is ridiculous.
Are we going to judge him by his parents?
Are we going to blame parents for their children’s messy lives?
Remains on federal probation? Now we know why both Biden and Obama really weren't invited. People on federal probation don't get to be in the same room with the President and Vice President. It would have been awkward to not have the father of the groom at the wedding.
.........and still owes at least $9.4 Million..........
Maybe Hillary can steal some more silverware so he could hock it.
Yes and yes.
Dollar to donuts if this was a Palin daughter u can be quite sure it would be everywhere, dont kid yourself.
The MSM double standard is making them look silly - and us look truthful.
Hmmm, maybe they should just keep it up?
I am not judging him at all.....merely putting out information which one would not hear through the MSM.
If it’s true that:
We are what we repeatedly do; excellence then, is not an act, but a habit. -Aristotle
Then the corrolary of this is also true, that we are who we surround ourselves with.
Geez...and this is the family now in bed with the Clinton dynasty? Hard to believe...
“Are we going to blame parents for their childrens messy lives?”
MESSY? Good grief...
And Jan Shakowski’s hubby cramer did time for ripping off a bank in a check kiting scheme oh that would be the bank that gave bo his mortgage, Shore Bank, of the progressive persuasion. Thick as Thieves is really the dem party.
It sounds like the Clinton’s are finally moving up in the world.
Agreed, we shouldn’t talk too much about the problems of his father.
I thought it was funny how the MSM had a number of stories about Mezvinsky being Jewish, and how this marriage was an interfaith marriage. That made me laugh, because, they are both from good liberal Democrat families. They are not devout in their religious faith to start with.
It would have been a real interfaith marriage if good Democrat Chelsea married a Republican.
As it is, it’s a merger of two political families who are on the same team.
This is stupid. Chelsea and her husband are private citizens.
It is not news that the father has been in prison. For most of that time Chelsea was not to be seen in the son’s company.
Pathetic isn’t it, given the Clinton’s own ugly corrupt history.
Do we have to join in on this bashing of the son for the father’s sins.
Scrutinizing the groom's father's criminal background is neither ridiculous nor judgmental esp. when political hacks like the clintoons are involved.
Small potatoes compared to Bernie who 'Madeoff' with the billion$!
Both klans are slime. Judge children by their parents? Well Chelsea got a cushy hedge fund job because of mom and dad. The kids will end up like their parents.
It's all clear to me now, Doofus; thanks for clearing that up.
How many "private citizens" have their wedding site declared 'no-fly' zones by the FAA?
Or give Hill $10 to start trading cattle futures, she’ll pay it off in no time.
People on Federal Probation can do whatever the judge and PO allow. I wonder why a motion wasn’t filed?
PS. Remember we ALL are SINNERS in need of Gods saving grace.
She married a Kennedy?
I don't know. The question did come up on The View on Thursday, but Obama gave some rambling answer about problems that come from having two presidents in the same place.
I had no idea that this kid's old man was still on federal probation until you posted. In fact, I didn't realize he just got out of the joint. I knew he was a convicted felon, but I thought all this happened years ago - like early 90s. I was wrong, apparently.
You're not adjusting for inflation. To be a Kennedy, you have to steal at least $100 million.
If restitution is still due, the only way to recover the $ is on probation.
If restitution is still due, the only way to recover the $ is on probation.
Yes. God says we are only responsible for our own sins. I don’t know why this is relevant either.
It’s wrong no matter what. Always take the high road.
Small potatoes compared to Bernie who 'Madeoff' with the billion$!
I doubt it was small potatoes to the people from whom the funds were stolen.
This isn't a question about if a federal judge would be amenable to the father's close proximity to POTUS. It's a question about the Secret Service's approval about who does or does not have immediate access to the sitting president. This is one of the rare instances where the Executive Branch (vis-a-vis the Secret Service), trumps the judiciary because of national security. A federal judge can't issue an order demanding the President eat with someone.
There is a differnece between being aware and informed and being judgmental. The grooms family are a bunch of slimy crooks who made their living cheating people out of their life savings. They still owe $9.4 million in restitution.
They Clintons are also a bunch of slimeballs. Bill as a predatory rapist who raped and beat up Juanita Broderick and others. They also made money from illegal drugs and selling contaminated blood of prisoners as well as looting several banks in Arkansas and leaving taxpayers with the bills.
The Clintons also murdered at least 100 people in Arkansas and left a trail of dead bodies everywhere they went. They also sold classified U.S. missile technology to the Communist Chinese
When the MSM announces that this multimillion dollar extravagance being a “royal wedding” it just show the depths to which our once great country has sunk.
Joe Kennedy was a stock swindler, didn't hurt his or his family's prospects one bit. I overheard a reporter describe the event yesterday as "a wedding of American Royalty". I don't even have the urge to puke anymore. It has all transcended that, completely. What we have here is a class of people and their hangers-on who are completely parasitical on our culture, economy, and society. They contribute nothing, exploit the laws and the good will of the people for their own enrichment and aggrandizement. And we are supposed to worship them for it. Exactly like admiring and celebrating intestinal worms for grabbing a free ride in our gut. Exactly like that.
In nature, successful parasites 'know' when enough is enough, how not to bleed the host dry, how to stay sub-clinical. Their own survival depends upon this. The vermin in the clinton/Soros culture haven't learned this. They are now 'royalty', and are thus beyond any known treatment, or so they think. The host knows that it is sick, and this time may not ridicule the doctor when he prescribes a cure.
YES and YES.
1. (Exodus 20:5) - “You shall not worship them or serve them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children, on the third and the fourth generations of those who hate Me,”
2. (Deuteronomy 5:9) - “You shall not worship them or serve them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children, and on the third and the fourth generations of those who hate Me,”
3. (Exodus 34:6-7) - “Then the Lord passed by in front of him and proclaimed, “The Lord, the Lord God, compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in lovingkindness and truth; 7who keeps lovingkindness for thousands, who forgives iniquity, transgression and sin; yet He will by no means leave the guilty unpunished, visiting the iniquity of fathers on the children and on the grandchildren to the third and fourth generations.”
4. (1 Cor. 15:22) - “For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all shall be made alive.”
Chelsea is so butt ugly she’s lucky she didn’t have to turn prisonerromance.com
I AGREE WITH YOU!
Yes, I do “judge”. In this case, the kids are just an ongoing part of this ‘dynasty” and yes it IS a dynasty...
Hillary writes a love letter thesis on Saul alinsky, the commie union thug...about the ‘masses”, blah blah, then she spends millions+ on her daughter’s wedding-—now as the Commie elite..the kids work for a Hedge Fund???HA.
People are REALLY stupid if they don’t get it...all this fal de rol about “the little people, the masses, the oppressed”..just a way to get power, then THEY get to be the RULING CLASS! ha...In Russia they got country homes, here they get condos in NYC.
I judge them ALL as phonies whose runious actions are destroying our country!!! In russia’s time, they would have been executed as soon as the revolution was underway ..making room for a nEW elite.
As long as she’s not running for office it’s really irrelevant. But geez, you got Bill for a daddy and this guy for a daddy-in-law. I hope Chelsea has a happy life with her new husband and stays away from politics.
Miss Clintons dress, designed by Oscar de la Renta or Vera Wang, is rumoured to be a cool $24,000, and the jewellery she wears on the day is worth $250,000. The cake alone will cost $10,000 !!!!!!!!!!!
Chelsea's new step-dad Ed Mezvinsky is finally our of jail, (after an 8 year sentence,) Did you read about that anywhere else in all the wedding coverage???) ----
so now is your chance to read up on all the sordid details of his 20+ years long history of financial fraud of his friends and clients ---
and the $10,000,000 that he netted ---
after FAILING to cheat the Nigerians out of their money first!!!!
Who in the world has NOT heard of Nigerian scams ???
How dumb could this ex-Congressman possibly be?
Yet note that both Mezvinsky jr. and Chelsea Victoria jr went to Stanford University (when she wasn't falling down drunk at her many parties in London).
Does anyone here really think either of these two is intellectually qualified to go to Stanford U ???
Can we see their SAT scores ???
Her new step-dad was so GREEDY that he tried to scam the Nigerians !!!
When that failed (many times), then he scammed his own friends and family and clients out of $10,000,000!!!

Prosecutors later would call Mezvinsky a one-man "crime wave" and said they uncovered elements of fraud in nearly every business deal of his dating to 1980. "We didn't even bother to look back farther," said Assistant U.S. Attorney Robert Zauzmer
He is 66 and serving the beginning of an 80-month sentence in federal prison for numerous charges, including bank, wire and mail fraud. He took people's money - more than $10 million - in elaborate lies and schemes.
Chelsea's New Family:
If reports are true that Chelsea Clinton and her boyfriend Marc Mezvinsky are considering marriage, the father of the groom won't be able to attend the wedding until he is released from prison in November 2008.
Ed Mezvinsky, a former Democratic Congressman from Iowa, is serving a seven-year sentence for fraud after getting caught up in a series of Nigerian e-mail scams.
Initially, Mezvinsky became the victim of "just about every different kind of African-based scam we've ever seen," federal prosecutor Bob Zauzmer told 20/20 for a report to be broadcast this evening.
But then, says Zauzmer, Mezvinsky began to steal from clients and even his own mother-in-law to raise the money to try yet another scheme.
"He was always looking for the home run. He was always trying to find the business deal that would make him as wealthy as all the people in his social circle," said Zauzmer.
After leaving Congress, Mezvinsky moved to Philadelphia's Main Line suburbs with his wife Marjorie Margolies, a former television reporter, who won a seat in Congress herself as a Democratic congresswomen from Pennsylvania.
"They were seen as people of means; they were a legitimate power couple," said Gar Joseph, a political columnist for the Philadelphia Daily News.
The Mezvinkskys were also close to Bill and Hillary Clinton and were frequent guests at White House state dinners.
Prosecutors say Mezvinsky used his connections to the Clintons and his son's social relationship with Chelsea to persuade people to give him money to participate in the scams.
Mezvinsky traveled to Nigeria numerous times and ultimately lost more than $3 million as a victim of the scammers.
Prosecutors say Mezvinsky fell particularly hard for what is known as the "black money" scam. Victims are told millions of dollars have been coated with black ink so the money could be smuggled out of Nigeria.
The scammers then offer to sell a special, expensive chemical to remove the black ink so the currency can be used.
Prosecutors say Mezvinsky fell for at least three separate "black money" schemes that he thought would bring him millions.
Mezvinsky declined requests sent to him in prison to speak with ABC.
But consider that the unsaid details are extremely interesting:
Both mom and dad were Congressmen, from different states!!!
Prosecutors say EVERY deal step-dad ever did since 1980 had fraud within it.
$10,000,000 stolen !!!
So, who is paying for this wedding and what money is being used?
Step-dads fine was only $3,000,000 so clear net profit is $7,000,000.
I wonder, I wonder,
Bill, Hillary, step-dad, bernie madoff, I guess this is how people have $5,000,000 weddings in modern America.
All bow down to our new rulers!
Or perhaps the money came from the hedge fund where C works and for which she went to bat in Congress for (and where she got laughed at for trying it).
Has she fallen down drunk lately?
Ordered any more $25,000 bottles of wine lately???
Do you KNOW anyone who drinks $25,000 bottles of wine or has $5,000,000 weddings?
Good point, but a sitting president wasn’t there. And I think Bill has broken bread with this guy before...
Apples don’t fall far from the tree.
You think Elitists don’t intermarry?
As two conditions of the wedding. as sometimes happens between parents of ‘the intended party’, I propose these might have been negotiated:
1. Always, in the presence of Big Bill, simply call the groom “Ed”, the similar phonetics might be, in 0bamaspeak, “troubling”;
2. If not “in the consumation of the rite”, for once and always, have a (ahem) “banner hanging by the marital grove to disguise the dear bride’s changing heightened countenance”.
“He comes from a crooked family”
And she doesn’t?
“A federal judge can’t issue an order demanding the President eat with someone.”
You’re only referring to Dem prez’s, right? After all, federal judges are omnipotent, just ask any one of them, especially Bolton.
Of course not! We're just going to give him the full rectal exam that the media has chosen to deal out to Sarah Palin............That's fair isn't it?
And for what it's worth, I have a gut feeling that the kid hasn't fallen too far from the family tree.......
But she did and the dad referred her to his son................
“Prosecutors say Mezvinsky used his connections to the Clintons and his son’s social relationship with Chelsea to persuade people to give him money to participate in the scams.”
You can bet that would have made news if it was a Republican!
