Political dynasties: Generational job security

(Before It's News)

On the downhill slide but unable to relinquish power, former President Bill Clinton misspeaks,  and spaces out while chewing on his tongue and in an attempt to ensure his scandal-plagued wife isn’t indicted, inappropriately maneuvers to meet clandestinely with U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch on the tarmac at Sky Harbor Airport — ostensibly to discuss his golf game and grandchildren. (wink, wink.)

The Clinton’s have been known as less than upstanding throughout their political careers which Bill jump-started in Arkansas when he first was elected Attorney General and then Governor. 

Prior to her stint in the U,S. Senate and appointment as Secretary of State (supported by both Jon Kyl and John McCain), Hillary busied herself threatening Bill’s female squeezes, declaring word of his numerous dalliances were part of the “vast right wing conspiracy.” His own staff was much more on target, referring to the ongoing revelations as “bimbo eruptions.” 

Now the New York Post reports that Chelsea Clinton is being groomed for a congressional seat when U.S. Rep. Nita Lowey, 79, retires. Just as most parents do, the Clinton’s purchased the $1.16 million house next door to theirs to guarantee Chelsea a residence within the congressional district

This political dynasty appears endless. Chelsea’s husband, Marc Mezvinsky is the son of Edward Mezvinsky, a Democrat former U.S. Rep. who represented Iowa’s 1st congressional district from 1973-1977.  But the story doesn’t stop there. Freedom Outpost reports that Ed Mezvinsky was indicted — and pled guilty — to 31 of 69 counts of bank fraud, mail fraud, and wire fraud. He was finally caught embezzling more than $10 million through a Ponzi scheme he devised involving a Nigerian e-mail scam. He was sentenced to 80 months in federal prison.  After his release and probation, he still owes $9.4 million in restitution. ABC News carries an in-depth reportEd Mezvinsky’s former wife Marjorie Margolies-Mezvinsky — also a Democrat — is a former U.S. Rep. from Pennsylvania.

The large Kennedy family has had generations of family members holding elective office in several states — all as Democrats. Republicans are no slackers in this arena.  The Bush Family, produced father and son U.S. Presidents. George H. W. Bush and his son George W.  Hungry for the ultimate job, Jeb Bush, a former Governor of Florida generated no enthusiasm as a Republican presidential candidate. He might have fared better running as the liberal he is. Jeb’s son George P. Bush holds public office in Texas.

But, we digress.  Back to Chelsea. She and hubby Marc have two young children. Will they be put on this political conveyor belt for job security? It’s heady stuff having drivers and security details, and rooms full of people stand and applaud you for merely walking in. The pay isn’t bad either.  There’s even more if you start a “ Foundation.
