On Thursday, President Bill Clinton will make a fundraising stop for Marjorie Margolies, the former congresswoman of PA’s 13th congressional district, current candidate, and mother in law of Chelsea Clinton. ABC referred to Margolies as Chelsea’s “scandal-plagued” mother in law.
Last week, Huffington Post reported on some questionable choices by Margolies during her reign as chairwoman of Women’s Campaign International. Her unusually high salary, as well as her attempts to rent out a mansion using WCI funds to serve as her own personal residence, happened in the wake of her ex-husband’s fraud charges and their resulting bankruptcy.
Tonight, I’ll be live-tweeting from the very first debate in the 13th congressional race upon which Marjorie Margolies plans to attend. So far she has avoided virtually every opportunity to speak publicly as a candidate about issues or the recent headlines. I’ll have a full recap of my thoughts on tonight’s debate sometime tomorrow, for our Keystone Politics readers.
Follow me at @ckennedy124 on Twitter, and I’ll share important details from each of the four candidates’ performances. As a reminder, this is a race between Former Congresswoman Marjorie Margolies, Dr. Valerie Arkoosh, State Representative Brendan Boyle, and State Senator Daylin Leach.
