Former Democratic Senator John Edwards Indicted!

Rate this post

Pretty boy John Edwards — former Democratic senator, John Kerry’s vice presidential running-mate, and a 2008 Dem presidential candidate — has just been indicted by a federal grand jury for misuse of campaign funds on his mistress with whom he carried on an adulterous affair while his wife, Elizabeth, was sick with terminal breast cancer.
The Associated Press reports, June 3, 2011:

RALEIGH, North Carolina (AP) — A federal grand jury has indicted two-time presidential candidate John Edwards over massive sums of money spent to keep his mistress in hiding during the peak of his 2008 campaign for the White House.

The case of USA v. Johnny Reid Edwards contains six counts, including
conspiracy, four counts of illegal campaign contributions and one count of false statements. The indictment was returned in the Middle District of North Carolina Friday. An Edwards spokeswoman said she wasn’t aware of the filing and declined immediate comment.

The indictment is the culmination of a federal investigation that lasted more
than two years and scoured through virtually every corner of Edwards’ political career.

Edwards’ attorney Greg Craig was traveling to meet with prosecutors in North Carolina, an indication that the former presidential candidate will likely be charged, either in a grand jury indictment or in a negotiated charge to which he would plead guilty. A person with knowledge of the investigation said Craig, a Washington lawyer who was President Barack Obama’s first White House counsel, planned to be in his client’s home state Friday, where prosecutors were prepared to file charges. The source insisted on anonymity in order to discuss the private negotiations.

Meanwhile, The National Enquirer — the supermarket tabloid disdained by the MSM, which doggedly pursued the Edwards scandal and broke the story of his “love child” conceived by mistress Rielle Hunter — is reporting that Hunter has dumped Edwards, the man whom she called her “soul mate” and love of her life.

  1. I never will understand these “moral issues” in the USA. If he has missused other people’s money ok he is wrong, but don’t comment on his personal affairs and his love life.

  2. One down! Fry his sorry butt. We have many to go.

  3. Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy…
    Oh and Hans, you can’t understand our “moral issues”? A public figure and a married man that cheats on his cancer-stricken wife is none of our business? It’s a little thing called “integrity”…by which we all should choose to live our lives. And it allows us to judge a man by his character.

  4. What you do in your private life greatly affect what you do in public life. You will know a person from their deeds. If he can’t stay faithful to his wife then he doesn’t belong in public office. I have read some of the comments here and some of you people need to clean up your moral act! You are just as morally corrupt as he is and you call yourself a Conservative? No, you are no Conservative and I will judge you!

    • Oh? So you act like you have the monopoly around here? Not quite! What do you think I am commenting on? Do you think? I am commenting on the article,Hans and your first comment Sage-bush, Move along little boy……..

    • Good observation, Dan. But those few comments on this thread condoning/defending Edwards were not by any of this blog’s regulars. Thus, I seriously doubt if they are Conservatives!

    Just more distractions. Aside from the fraudulent birth certificate(s), when will the indictments begin on all of Obama’s 2008 illegal campaign contributions?

  6. He may be real popular in prison, though.

  7. truly sucks to believe in a face in a cause and learn he is the exact thing we are trying to avoid…ROAD KILL>>>
