Israeli-born and raised Ben Zion Suky made his money in porn distribution (and by allegedly illegally bootlegging porn made by others). Suky is also a close aide to Rabbi Yoshuiyahu Yosef Pinto, the sefardic 'kabbalist' and 'mystic' rabbi-to-the-stars. Suky and his wife gave generously to the political campaigns of Anthony Weiner (who was once close to Pinto), Eric Cantor and Michael Grimm, the embattled Republican congressman facing an investigation over illegal campaign contributions – many of which allegedly came from people close to Pinto. Weiner returned the Suky's money when he found out what Suky did to earn it. Even so, Mitt Romney's presidential campaign took money from Suky's wife.
