Clinton In-Law Marjorie Margolies Toppled in Pennsylvania (stunning loss against pro-lifer)
abcnews.com ^ | 5/20/14 | Betsy Klein

Posted on 05/21/2014 3:51:37 AM PDT by Liz

Bill and Hillary Clinton actively campaigned for Chelsea’s MIL, but Marjorie Margolies lost her Democratic primary bid for Congress. Her opponent 37 y/o Brendan Boyle, a state legislator who raised the least amount of money and lacked powerful Democrat connections lead Margolies by a whopping 58.5% to 22.4%, per AP projections.

..... fem/libbers---EMILY’s List and NARAL Pro-Choice America---mounted attacks on Boyle’s anti-abortion voting record. He will face Republican Dee Adcock in the safe-Democratic district November.

Bill Clinton headlined a fundraiser, and made an ad, and a robo-call on Margolies' behalf. Hillary headlined a posh fundraiser, which the ex-congresswoman did not attend.

... one report exposed that Margolies “doubled her salary as head of a small, largely taxpayer-funded charity [Women's Campaign International] into the six figures” as her then-husband Ed Mezvinsky faced charges, and was ultimately convicted and jailed, for fraud while succumbing to multiple Nigerian scams.

POINTS TO PONDER The Clintons were canonized by desperate Democrats as the most powerful figures in their Party---but they couldn't even deliver a house seat in a very blue district in one of the most liberals states in America.

I have no idea how all of this will play out, but there does appear to be an element of ‘Clinton fatigue’ among some Democrats.

Yes, like those “blue dog” Democrats (Stupak & Co.) that passed ObamaCare. The Catholic Church prohibits membership in the Freemasons; it is high time they do the same for the Democratic Party as long as baby-murder is part of the official party platform.

....there does appear to be an element of ‘Clinton fatigue’ among some Democrats....

Fox News reported "Hillary looks rusty at her coming out party" when she headlined a funder for Margolies---her first official campaign event this cycle – and her first since 2008.

Hillary appeared at the home of uber-rich Lynn Forester de Rothschild, a principle PUMA (and notorious Barack Obama trash-talker). Barbaralee Diamonstein-Spielvogel and Jill Iscol also made the scene.

Candidate Marjorie Margolies lost her Pennsylvania House seat in 1994, mostly a martyr for her defense of unpopular Clinton polices. She remained a Clinton intimate thereafter, including during the fraud conviction of her then-husband, former Democratic Rep. Edward Mezvinsky, D-Iowa. Edward, a lawyer, succumbed to several of the most outlandish Nigerian scams (involving buying expensive Nigerian Black Ink remover),

Hillary was raising money for her fellow expectant grandmother, Margolies. But this isn’t two nannas-to-be getting together to knit booties..........rest at foxnews.com

Hillary's penchant for rubbing shoulders w/ the rich and powerful surely (and all those PA electoral votes) colored her decision to make an appearance.

“The Clintons were canonized by desperate Democrats as the most powerful figures in their Party-—but they couldn’t even deliver a house seat in a very blue district in one of the most liberals states in America.”

During the 2000s smart Dems politely declined BJ Clinton’s offer to campaign for them; those that accepted paid the price. The fact is that he has been toxic since the Monica Lewinsky story; it cost them Congress and the White House in 2000 (and Al Gore knew it).

"Pro-life Democrat" is a misnomer. He supported legislation requiring doctors in abortion clinic to have hospital privileges, and the clinics to meet medical clinic standards. That's a bit like saying Mr X must be against the death penalty, because he supported legislation requiring that guillotine blades be inspected for sufficient sharpness, and set up only by trained guillotiners.

The Clintons didn’t have a pot to *** in in Arkansas-—never even had a home to call their own. Now they’re multi-
millionaires.......with hundreds of millions in donations from dubious sources financing Hillary’s ambitions and Bill’s ego-driven obsession for being in the limelight.


There needs to be a thorough going-over of the three tax-exempt Clinton Foundations and their assorted money-grabbing derivations. We need to know who pays/funds the Clinton’s lifestyle/political ambitions—— especially b/c Hillary is apparently running for prez. It is important to know to whom the Clinton’s are truly indebted.

It had the net effect of causing many abortionists to close, and the people voting on the legislation knew full well that this would be the effect.

It will be interesting how the November campaign is conducted. Will he proclaim himself pro-abortion?

Hillary’s tax deduction amount for Bill’s used underwear was $2.00 originally. Imagine if a Republican had taken such a deduction. Or suppose a GOPer had walked out of the WH [at the end of his/her term] with half the items that weren’t nailed down, Bill & Hill style.

Dems are just pathetic to lionize this pair. They are shameless & tawdry.

........those voting on the legislation knew full well that closedowns this would be the effect.......

==============================================

Hafta admire the way Boyle handles the issue----legislation forcing the baby killers to close-up shop was pretty darn sharp.

So, I don't care what he says----it's what happens when he acts that we'd best look at.

It's also instructive that NARAL and that wild-eyed bunch went ballistic. They did not want him in office.

“Mezvinsky ..... convicted and jailed, for fraud while succumbing to multiple Nigerian scams”

I may be reading this wrong, but why would someone be jailed for succumbing to a scam? Wouldn’t the one succumbing be the same as the victim of a scam/fraud?

Edward, a lawyer and himself a former Democrat Congressman, got conned into several notorious Nigerian-based email financial frauds guaranteed to make you rich. So in his haste to get rich quick, to raise money to get in on these "heaven-sent" investment schemes, Edward defrauded many of his friends and business contacts.

Alas, when the Nigerians got their hands on Edwards' money, they did a 23 skidoo. Having failed to come up w/ a ROI, Edward got nabbed by the long arm of the law. Mezvinsky pleaded guilty to 31 of 69 felony counts.. He did hard time----spent 7+ years in a federal prison w/ no chance of parole, and still owes millions in restitution.

Democrat Congressman 2014 candidate Marjory Margolies is also no stranger to the dollar disease. Because of her husband's felony convictions, she filed for bankruptcy. But the court would NOT discharge her of her debts, finding that she could NOT explain where some $1 million in assets had vanished, in the previous 4 year span...during Mezvitsky's crime spree.

It’s an interesting tactic that I’ve seen used to good effect. Declare oneself to be pro-choice, but distinguish that from being pro-abortion. Support treating abortion clinics like out-patient surgical centers while adopting the old Clinton-era “safe, legal and rare” language.

Net result IS a serious reduction in abortion providers and abortions. Not a perfect, 100% solution, but a decent enough incremental one in an environment where even under the best circumstances abortion is a generation or two away from being re-outlawed.

I don’t remember hearing about the father being in jail back when Chelsea married Marjory's son.......

ABC NEWS---12/1/09--- Will Father of the Groom Be Welcome Figure at Chelsea Clinton's Wedding? / By JOSEPH RHEE and DREW SANDHOLM

If Ed Mezvinsky, the disgraced father of Chelsea Clinton's newly-announced fiancé Marc Mezvinsky, attends his own son's wedding, he might want to consider ducking out before the reception. Mezvinsky was convicted in 2002 of bilking his associates, friends and family members -- even his own late mother-in-law -- out of millions of dollars.

Despite being released in April 2008 after serving five years in prison, Mezvinsky remains on federal probation and still owes almost $9.4 million in restitution to his victims.

An ABC News investigation revealed that Mezvinsky, a former Democratic Congressman from Iowa, had been caught up in a series of Nigerian e-mail scams and began to steal from people to further his schemes.

"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 federal prosecutor Bob Zauzmer. According to Zauzmer, Mezvinsky, who is now 72, will be on supervised release, the federal version of probation, until 2011.

ABC News was unable to reach Ed Mezvinsky for a response, but did reach his ex-wife Marjorie. Marjorie Margolies-Mezvinsky refused to comment on whether or not her ex-husband would be attending their son's wedding, referring all questions to a Clinton family spokesperson. Margolies-Mezvinsky did confirm that no wedding date has yet been set.

Asked whether Ed Mezvinsky would be attending the wedding, a spokesperson for former President Bill Clinton said he didn't know. "I don't know anything at this point beyond the fact that they're engaged," Matt McKenna told ABC News in an e-mail.

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.

In an interview with Des Moines Register from prison in 2003, Mezvinsky said he found the Nigerian Black Ink scam convincing. "The Nigerian man came out with a chemical, threw it on the money, and it all turned to $100 bills. He gave me 10 to have them tested back home. And they were real," Mezvinsky told the Register.
