Denise Rich, the wealthy socialite and former wife of pardoned billionaire trader Marc Rich, has given up her U.S. citizenship - and, with it, much of her U.S. tax bill.

Rich, 68, a Grammy-nominated songwriter, top Democratic donor and glamorous figure in European royalty circles, renounced her American passport in November, according to her lawyer.

Her maiden name, Denise Eisenberg, appeared in the Federal Register on April 30 in a quarterly list of Americans who renounced their U.S. citizenship and permanent residents who handed in their green cards.

___Songwriter also has Austrian citizenship through her late father

___ Former husband Marc Rich fled the country when indicted on charges of tax evasion - but was pardoned by President Clinton in 2001

___ House of Representatives committee later found Denise Rich had swayed the decision through donations to Clinton campaign

___ Comes as the latest wealthy American to denounce citizenship

BJ Clinton made a lot of money off POTUS pardons, but that won’t even be the sales tax on the amount Baraq scoots off with.

Normally, I wouldn’t wish cancer on anyone, but I might make an exception in her case.

It’s scary to think about what a petulant angry BO will do if he is rejected in November. I imagine he will empty out GITMO.....

"Former husband Marc Rich fled the country when indicted on charges of tax evasion - but was pardoned by President Clinton in 2001"...after significant contributions were made to the DNC through asst Attorney General Eric Holder who wrote the pardon recommendation.

This woman is 68???

While I'm certain she's one of the ugliest women on earth on the inside, the outside is quite impressive. Hats off to her plastic surgeon(s).

I agree.

She has spent (at least part) of her billions wisely.

Certainly wisely enough to get her ex a pardon from BJ.

For decades, she's been a major fundraiser for the big tax, big spend Democratic Party.

She drilled the holes in the bottom of the ocean liner, then was one of the first to jump in a life boat.

Didn’t she sneak into the White House and pay for Marc Rich’s pardon with a Lewinski?

Reminds me of a little ditty we worked on back in ‘01, to the tune of “Send in the Clowns”:

There’s Denise Rich.
Wow, what a pair!
Bill with his feet on the ground
Her’s in... mid-air.

Totally creepy.

So, if she denounces citizenship, she can’t make anymore campaign contributions.

Right?

To Dems, she can make them because no repercussions would ever come from the worthless (R)s.

Well, she could go for Iced Tea with Al Gore, and heck, she could even challenge Hillary for the Presidential nomination in 2016. After all, she's a Liberal Demo-rat.
