Marjorie Margolies, Chelsea Clinton’s mother-in-law, made it official Thursday and filed her papers to run for her old House seat in Pennsylvania in 2014.
The newly minted congressional candidate is better known as Marjorie Margolies-Mezvinsky, her former married name.
Marjorie Margolies cast a decisive vote for Bill Clinton’s 1993 budget. Republicans chanted “Bye, Bye, Marjorie,” when she did and she was defeated for re-election the following year.

“My desire to serve today is rooted firmly in the very same belief I held when I first won this seat – a belief in the power of different voices in Congress to make a difference,” Marjorie Margolies in a statement, reported by the PoliticsPA blog.
Marjorie Margolies is running in Pennsylvania’s 13th District, which is based in suburban Philadelphia. Rep. Allyson Schwartz, a Democrat, is vacating the seat to run for governor.
She is the founder of Women’s Campaign International, a non-profit organization that works around the world to ensure women can participate in the development of public policy and provides advocacy training. She also teaches at the University of Pennsylvania’s Fels Institute of Government.
Marc Mezvinsky, the candidate’s son, married Chelsea Clinton in 2010.
Marjorie Margolies divorced her son’s father, former congressman Ed Mezvinsky, in 2007.
Jason Good, a married man from Laurel, Virginia, was caught out by his wife after he used his cell phone to record his mother-in-law taking her clothes off.
Jason Good was charged with a misdemeanor after his wife contacted police to say she had been looking at her husband’s phone when she found a “video of an adult female using the restroom”, an officer said.
The wife was horrified to discover the footage taken at their home was of her 57-year-old mother.
The woman phoned the police department in Henrico County on Sunday morning after finding the tape.

When officers arrived to take a statement from Jason Good’s wife she directed them to “a hole located in the wall between the garage and the bathroom”.
Jason Good, 40, was then interviewed and arrested by officers.
If found guilty, the man could face up to a year in prison or a fine of up to $2,500.
The woman who was filmed does not live with the couple and it is unclear if the incident took place over Thanksgiving, according to thesmokinggun.com.
Lt. Eric Owens, Henrico County Police spokesman, said in a statement that the crime of filming someone undressing was considered a class 1 misdemeanor and was punishable by up to one year in jail.
Eric Owens added Jason Good’s wife discovered the video while looking through her husband’s cell phone. The woman recognized her mother in the video and called police.
