Skip to comments.Clinton In-Law Marjorie Margolies Toppled in Pennsylvania (stunning loss against pro-lifer)
Posted on 05/21/2014 3:51:37 AM PDT by Liz
Bill and Hillary Clinton actively campaigned for Chelseas 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---EMILYs List and NARAL Pro-Choice America---mounted attacks on Boyles 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.

One grandma down; one to go!
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.
Bout time they woke up. . . . . .
They still seem to be up for a progressive
Perhaps outside the Beltway and outside the MSM circle jerk “Clinton” is more like poison than power.
He’ll be a pro-life Democrat until it comes time to vote.
“Hell be a pro-life Democrat until it comes time to vote.”
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.
She shore is a calm, purty grandma, and ain't no ways tard.
That picture of her reminds me of how Hitler used to gesture in his speeches.
Stands to reason, as they both have the same father.
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 isnt 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.
A wonderful summation. May we see part two.
“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).
Maybe Baby-killin’ isn’t as big a vote-getter as we’ve been led to believe.
Barbaralee who ?
the peons resent the Clintoons for being gross disgusting nasty pigs
"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.
She didn’t just loose but whopping big loss! Hillary has the weight to match that or become the whopping big -A looser!
