Chelsea's Beau's Dad in the Clink

12/8/2006 3:10 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Chelsea ClintonThe father of Chelsea Clinton's boyfriend is currently behind bars, serving a seven-year sentence for fraud. Former Congressman Edward Mezvinsky, father of Marc Mezvinsky, is featured in tonight's "20/20" report on the Nigerian scams in which he was embroiled.

Chelsea and Marc have been dating for just over a year. Ed began serving his sentence in 2003 and is scheduled to be released in 2008. According to "20/20," Mezvinsky was caught up in several different scams, and eventually began stealing from clients to raise the money for other schemes. He lost more than $3 million as a result.

Federal prosecutor Bob Zauzmer told ABC, "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." Both Ed and his wife, Marjorie Margolies, have served in Congress.

"20/20" airs tonight at 10PM ET/PT on ABC.

The only difference between the former Congressman and the Clintons is that the Clintons havn't been caught--yet.

Clinton was the best President we've had in the past 20 years. If you don't think so you're a idiot Repug, or just a plain out right idiot. I miss a strong economy, no deficit, and someone who thought twice before getting us into conflicts that would end up being a civil war.

So you say Clinton was the best president we ever had? Wow, where do I start? Besides getting a hummer from a fat intern, he let the terrorists just keep on attacking us, well until 9-11 happened. You're right he didn't get us in war, let's not count the war in Balkens, but anyway the terrorist knew they had an appeaser. They talked about the Bush twins, so what wrong with talking about Chelsea.

I agree Clinton is the best President we've had in ages. I which he could/would run again. We need a true leader, Bush is no leader.

Please Lenn you Republican's sound so pathetic when you try to blame Clinton for everything that’s happened during the Bush Administration it’s ridiculous and stupid. Bush had plenty of time and warnings to do something but he didn’t do anything. And he had the backing of both houses when he had the information, Clinton did not. Don’t get me started with all the sh*t Bush has done wrong. There’s not enough hours in the day.

There’s none good but the Father. This is a scripture in the Bible.

Now with that said let’s not forget the Iran Contra scandal under the Reagan Administration. The Iran-Contra Affair (also called the Iran-Contra Matter and Iran-gate) was one of the largest political scandals in the United States during the 1980s. It involved several members of the Reagan Administration who in 1986 helped sell arms to Iran, an avowed enemy, and used the proceeds to fund the Contras, an anti-communist guerrilla organization in Nicaragua.

After the arms sales were revealed in November 1986, President Ronald Reagan appeared on national television and denied that they had occurred. However, a week later, on November 13, he returned to the airwaves to affirm that weapons were indeed transferred to Iran. He denied that they were part of an exchange for hostages.

With that said, President Reagan is seen as a great president. Did he make mistakes? Absolutely. It also says in the Bible that if we all got what we deserved we would all be consumed (no one will be here). Our society has become derelict and intolerable. How can we speak as a nation when we are ok with the deaths of hundreds of thousands of innocent Iraqi men, women and children? How can we take the high road?

When we start receiving more and more terrorist attacks here in the USA we should not be surprise because the only thing that we Americans do well is call people names.

Although David had an affair then had the husband killed he was still very much loved by God. He was a man after God's own heart. We do not know what happens when Bill Clinton speaks to God. Who am I to judge? Who are you to judge?
