Marc Mezvinsky: After nuptial rumors were scotched last spring, former first daughter Chelsea Clinton and Goldman Sachs investment banker Marc Mezvinsky emailed friends Friday to say they are engaged, and may wed next summer.
Friends since their teens, both studied finance at Stanford University and both have lived in the shadow of highly public parental misdeeds – Clinton as the daughter of a philandering President Bill Clinton and Mezvinsky as the son of former Iowa Rep. Edward Mezvinsky, later described by federal prosecutors as a “one-man crime wave” who skinned investors of almost $10 million.
Chelsea Clinton’s mother is U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, and her fiance’s mother is former Pennsylvania congresswoman and one-time NBC Washington correspondent Marjorie Margolies-Mezvinsky.
Last May, the Boston Globe reported that the couple were engaged and would have a sunset wedding at the Martha’s Vineyard home of actors Ted Danson and Mary Steenburgen. Three days later, the rumor was denied by a Clinton spokesperson. This time, the engagement was officially confirmed.
The intended aisle-walkers both live in New York. Chelsea Clinton is a graduate student at Columbia University’s School of Public Health.
Mezvinsky pere, who served in the U.S. House from 1973-77, was a member of the Judiciary Committee who voted in his first term for the impeachment of President Richard Nixon for crimes related to the Watergate scandal. After Congress, he worked for the United Nations Commission on Human Rights and made an unsuccessful run for Pennsylvania attorney general in 1988.
At the same time he was involved in business transactions beginning in 1980, and continuing until 2000, virtually all of which were later found to involve fraud. Shortly after he was indicted in early 2001 on 69 counts of bank, mail, and wire fraud, “Ed” Mezvinsky was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, but was not allowed to use it as a defense. In 2002, he pleaded guilty to 31 of the charges against him and was sentenced to 80 months in prison. Last year, he was released from a federal halfway house.
