Jared’s dad: Observant Jew and convicted felon
Jared Kushner wealthy newspaper owner and engaged to Ivanka Trump has a felon, jailbird daddy. It is reported that they are very close. They observe Shabat every Saturday as a family.
His daddy plays dirty really dirty. And they said Joe Kennedy was dirty! The Kennedys did not pay Harvard to gain admission, but Charles did. Does this story qualify as a WTF Friday? Not really, but it’s good. This Dem has spent time in prison and it ain’t pretty.
In 2004, it came to light that Kushner had skirted campaign finance laws, making political donations in the names of his real estate partners without their consent, a scheme that allowed him to direct millions to candidates like McGreevey, who received more than $1.5 million from the real estate developer between 1997 and 2001.
The scandal got messier when it was revealed that Kushner’s brother and sister, Murray and Esther—both of whom had been at odds with Charles over various financial matters—had cooperated with the federal investigation into his campaign activities, and that Charles had retaliated for the perceived betrayal by hiring a prostitute to seduce his brother-in-law. (He sent a videotape of the encounter to his sister on the day of a family gathering.)
Nice guy. He wisely stopped making big political contributions to Dems in 2006. Had he donated to Obama then it would have been another scandal in real time.
