Former President Bill Clinton and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton will NOT be requesting the pleasure of reporters' company at the marriage of their daughter Chelsea Clinton to Goldman Sachs investment banker Marc Mezvinsky on Saturday, July 31st, at 6 p.m., at their Astor Estate in Rhinebeck, NY.
Already two Norwegian reporters were arrested for taking pictures of the gate of the house, and may be facing up to 15 days in jail and/or a fine up to $250, the Christian Monitor is reporting.
Some of the VIP guests have had some legal issues of their own.
The mother of the bride made history in 1996, after she became the First Lady to be subpoenaed to testify before a Federal grand jury during the Whitewater controversy. There was insufficient evidence of any criminal wrongdoing.
Let's not forget the father of the bride was impeached for perjury and obstruction of justice after a certain indiscretion with a White House intern.
Al Gore will probably be smiling brightly in wedding pictures after news that Portland Police Bureau recommended the district attorney drop sexual assault charges against him.
The elephant in the room at this wedding will smell like money. Considering the poverty the Clinton family has seen in places like Haiti, the cost of the wedding -- reportedly between $2 to $6 million -- is nearly criminal.
