Charles Kushner


Charles Kushner is father of Jared Kushner. In 2004, Jared's father Charles was prosecuted by Chris and subsequently spent a year in gaol for tax evasion, witness tampering and illegal campaign contribution.[1] Perhaps the most shocking thing that came to light was that Charles, who Chris described as the "single-largest political donor in New Jersey and one of the biggest in the nation", had hired a prostitute to have an encounter with his brother-in-law, which was secretly recorded, and had the tape sent to his sister, his brother-in-law's wife.[2][3] Charles's brother-in-law had been cooperating with authorities.[1] Before being prosecuted, Charles had regarded his family as the Jewish Kennedys.[4] Charles has "funded radical Jewish settlements on the occupied West Bank".[5]
