Quote from the article: 'Another focus of curiosity is the relationship that Epstein has with his patron and mentor Leslie Wexner, founder and chairman of the Columbus, Ohio–based Limited chain of women’s-clothing stores. Wexner, who is said to be worth more than $2.5 billion by Forbes, became an Epstein client in 1987. “It’s a weird relationship,” says another Wall Streeter who knows Epstein. “It’s just not typical for someone of such enormous wealth to all of a sudden give his money to some guy most people have never heard of.” The Wexner-Epstein relationship is indeed a multifaceted one.'
Quote from the article: 'Moreover, Epstein’s former clients include Leslie Wexner, the billionaire founder of Victoria’s Secret; Epstein served as a trustee of The Wexner Foundation. A spokesperson for the retailer says that “Mr. Wexner severed ties with Mr. Epstein more than a decade ago.” Epstein’s case stretches back more than ten years, when he was accused of sex crimes involving dozens of underage girls.'
Limited Brands founder Leslie H. Wexner will hold a fundraiser Thursday night in his New Albany home for presumtive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney. Romney will fly to Columbus from Florida on Thursday for the fundraiser. There are no public campaign events scheduled while he is in the city.
The Mega Group’s role in the Epstein case has garnered some attention, as Epstein’s main financial patron for decades, billionaire Leslie Wexner, was a co-founder of the group that unites several well-known businessmen with a penchant for pro-Israel and ethno-philanthropy (i.e., philanthropy benefiting a single ethnic or ethno-religious group).
