John Edwards Finally Indicted For His Many Crimes

by Wonkette Jr.

Visions of America.Loverboy creep John Edwards spent nearly a million dollars in campaign donations — money given by liberal Democrats to this man’s presidential campaign — to keep his mistress and love child living in style all while pretending to be a loyal family man out to help working people. Sure, it is not a crime that’s nearly on the scale of the crimes committed by everyone on Wall Street and in the actual White House, but this will keep people from talking about unemployment for another few hours, we suppose.

AP reports:

A federal grand jury indicted two-time presidential candidate John Edwards on Friday over $925,000 spent to keep his mistress and their baby 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.

He’ll pay some fine out of his hundred million dollar stash, and we can all feel good about America again. [AP]

We know he's good at oral arguments… but yeah, he's probably screwed.

Ruhe June 3, 2011 at 12:05 pm

He should be screwed. Just imagine what would have happened if he'd gotten the nomination. Oh, wait. We won the last election and the Republicans are still fucking us, so, whatever.

Gopherit June 3, 2011 at 12:01 pm

See what happens, John? See what happens when you fuck a crazy in the ass?

CrankyLttlCamperette June 3, 2011 at 12:05 pm

If he HAD fucked her in the ass, there wouldn't be a bundle o'joy.

Terry June 3, 2011 at 12:07 pm

Just a bundle of Santorum.

Gopherit June 3, 2011 at 12:14 pm

Alas, I was going for a John Goodman/Lebowski vibe. I have no idea why…….I'm just in an odd mood today.

easybaked June 3, 2011 at 12:42 pm

I read that in his voice. So you were spot on, mate. Cheers.

TanzbodenKoenig June 3, 2011 at 12:49 pm

"back door no babies" is the motto on my family crest

Crank_Tango June 3, 2011 at 12:05 pm

never promise crazy a baby, also.

waitforsugar June 3, 2011 at 12:11 pm

Dammit I was just typing that.

AJWjr. June 3, 2011 at 12:07 pm

Things for him would be much better right now if that were the extent of their relationship.

Callyson June 3, 2011 at 12:08 pm

Had it been in the ass, there would not have been that unpleasantness with the baby. Guess the Breck Boy is not into kinky stuff.

Love child? Sex Scandal? Indictment?
When did Edwards become a republican?

Ken Layne June 3, 2011 at 12:31 pm

Republican sex scandals usually involve diddling little boys.

The mistress scandals and indictments are usually Democrat games.

/Arnold married a Kennedy, which allowed him access into the heterosexual mistress/love child club.

OneDollarJuana June 3, 2011 at 12:34 pm

Democrat scandals used to involve Oprah, too. Now what will they do?

Maman June 3, 2011 at 12:32 pm

Sadly it is not twisted enough of a story for a Republican…. It is just basic douchebaggery. To qualify for GOP status Rielle Hunter would have had to been a Martian or his best friend's wife.

GOPCrusher June 3, 2011 at 1:38 pm

Or a teenage boy.

I suppose this outlines the beauty of the right wing plan to bang boys instead of girls. No one ends up pregnant.

DerrickWildcat June 3, 2011 at 12:03 pm

This and Weiner ought to keep Fox busy for the next two weeks.

nounverb911 June 3, 2011 at 12:07 pm

That and helping Palin outrun the real media in her "vacation" bus.

Captain_Quark June 3, 2011 at 12:04 pm

I didn't know you could indict a dildo. Especially a talking dildo with fabulous hair. What's next, an indictment of Mittens?

Ducksworthy June 3, 2011 at 12:04 pm

Johnny we never knew ye.

DemmeFatale June 4, 2011 at 11:00 am

Really. Every time I see his smarmy face I think: "we really dodged a bullet."

(Not that he truly had a chance.)

SorosBot June 3, 2011 at 12:04 pm

This will be the Trial of the Century of 2011. Seriously, the asshole's been irrelevant since well before the love child story broke but I'm sure this will be a media circus and it'll be impossible to escape the coverage.

CrankyLttlCamperette June 3, 2011 at 12:23 pm

He'll settle.

Ken Layne June 3, 2011 at 12:33 pm

Exactly. They tried to settle yesterday but goddamned Edwards is a prick right to the end, even with his buddy as president. But they will settle, and Edwards will at most pay a fine and maybe do some "community service" like impregnating some poor girls.

SorosBot June 3, 2011 at 12:39 pm

Let's hope so.

Negropolis June 3, 2011 at 11:33 pm

I'd imagine that to be the case. I mean, look at Rielle. If that ain't settling, I don't know what is.

SexySmurf June 3, 2011 at 12:05 pm

But he's too pretty for jail.

baconzgood June 3, 2011 at 12:05 pm

Sorry, I'm too busy looking at the Cuban beauty sexy hot pepper eatin' ad to pay attention to John Edwards and his bastard.

prommie June 3, 2011 at 12:09 pm

I've developed a fondness for the Cuban beauty, too.

baconzgood June 3, 2011 at 12:11 pm

She's sweet. Ya think I gotta chance?

HistoriCat June 3, 2011 at 12:43 pm

What the hell – after all those peppers, she may just have a hankerin' for some bacon.

Terry June 3, 2011 at 12:06 pm

It's the same lesson over and over. It's the cover up that really does you in.

Ken Layne June 3, 2011 at 12:34 pm

The coverup and the whole knocking up some new-age weirdo, encouraging her to have the baby, and then paying for both until your wife dies of cancer and you can finally marry her in the open. Ugh.

Terry June 3, 2011 at 12:40 pm

Very true. He's scum, basically, although I guess he gets points for supporting the kid. It's the coverup that's sending his boney arse to jail.

UW8316154 June 3, 2011 at 8:27 pm

To be fair, he only supported the kid after he spent time vigorously denying it was his.

Negropolis June 3, 2011 at 11:35 pm

Publically. Behind the scenes, he was supporting her as he always had.

Come here a minute June 3, 2011 at 12:06 pm

This is who those Arkansas schoolchildren's parents want on the "worst people" list. Making babies is right up there with killing them.

edgydrifter June 3, 2011 at 12:07 pm

$925K, a destroyed family, a ruined career and now maybe a criminal record. That better have been some solid gold, heroin-dipped angel pussy from the eleventh dimension, Johnny, or you got ripped-off big time.

baconzgood June 3, 2011 at 12:21 pm

I destroyed my family and ruined my career and all it took was about $1500 worth of booze. He's got to be a little more cost effictive. Budget himself better.

Lascauxcaveman June 3, 2011 at 1:27 pm

You working class dudes are always more efficient than lawyerly, fake son-of-a-mill-workers opportunists ever are.

My next door neighbor (builds roads for a living) managed to wreck his marriage without any booze at all, simply by marrying the wrong crazy broad. Five years domestic bliss, one cute and friendly kid, and boom, she kicks him out. Just like her first husband.

I'm especially pissed about this, because he's the guy that would plow our steep 1/4 mile of mutual private road in the winter. His wife kicks him out! Be interesting to see how you get to work in January, bitch.

OneDollarJuana June 3, 2011 at 12:37 pm

Well, John Edwards being a man, all it needed to be is different pussy.

easybaked June 3, 2011 at 12:58 pm

Makes me think of a quote from City Slickers:

"Women need a reason for having sex, men just need a place."

Negropolis June 3, 2011 at 11:37 pm

That better have been some solid gold, heroin-dipped angel pussy from the eleventh dimension

Okay, now; you just broke the internets with that one.

Also, too. (for points!)

Good, maybe this'll knock Weiner's bunch outta the news for a minute. As long as there's a Democrat to demonize and speculate about, they're really interchangeable.

CrankyLttlCamperette June 3, 2011 at 12:30 pm

Well, it was the Victorians who gave us the terms "white meat" and "dark meat" for poultry because it was considered too salacious to refer to the breast or the thigh at the family dinner table.

Does this mean the hoopskirt is coming back, too? Or just the misogyny and repression?

Callyson June 3, 2011 at 12:08 pm

$925,000 spent to keep his mistress…out of his hundred million dollar stash
Sounds like Rielle is not the toughest negotiator…you'd think she could have gotten at least a 2% cut. Oh, right, she did it for love not money.

BlueMonkeh June 3, 2011 at 12:17 pm

Hey – I married for love and look where it got me!

(Oh, yeah….)

AJWjr. June 3, 2011 at 12:09 pm

John Edwards is a corporate entity no doubt, therefore his punishment will consist of a little lucre, and we will all forget about it by the next news cycle.

Mort_Sinclair June 3, 2011 at 12:09 pm

Johnny??? His legal name is Johnny? Well, anyway. Did you know his daddy worked in a mill?

justkillmenow June 3, 2011 at 12:10 pm

I was just getting ready to ask that same question. Who names their kid Johnny? Wow.

AnAmericanInTO June 3, 2011 at 12:36 pm

Johnny Reid Edwards sounds like the guy in charge of snacks at the local KKK Klavern.

Or Lynyrd Skynyrd's touring bassist.

Mort_Sinclair June 3, 2011 at 12:38 pm

Actually, now that I think about it, that Johnny Reid Edwards thing actually explains a lot. It might even explain everything.

tessiee June 4, 2011 at 11:07 pm

When I lived in Johnny's zip code, I a co-worker whose real first name was "Junior".
Yes, he later had it legally changed.

Gopherit June 3, 2011 at 12:09 pm

Newt was smart……he never paid them off, he just married them.

JustPixelz June 3, 2011 at 12:13 pm

Like a lot of other things, this started while Bush was president. So, how will Repubicans blame it on Obama?

"Obama set the moral standard for the Democrat Party. And he set it low enough that Edwards thought he could get away with this kind of behavior." — Newt Gingrich

"In Obama's America, keeping your child is an indictable offense. 'Going Rogue' makes a great gift." — Sarah Palin™

"Things like this simply didn't happen when George Bush and the Republicans were keeping America safe from Iraq on 9/11". –Michele Bachmann

horsedreamer_1 June 3, 2011 at 12:20 pm

I thought you were putting up actual quotes after I read the first, ascribed to Newton Leroy.

In fact, have you considered becoming a writer for NewtExplore?

KeepFnThatChicken June 3, 2011 at 12:15 pm

$725,000 of the money he received came from the World's Oldest Cougar, Rachel Mellon. She's a centenarian, for God's sake.

AJWjr. June 3, 2011 at 12:30 pm

For a million dollars, I'd hit that.

Newt had the wherewithal to divorce his cancerous wife.

OT. Too bad we don't have Riley to send to the Faith$&Freedumb$ hate fest going on. It's great to see "establishment" Republicans line up to shrill at an event run by a disgraced, oily con man.

Poindexter718 June 3, 2011 at 12:39 pm

I knew all along that Edwards was a fraud and, to their credit, I think many Democratic primary voters knew it too. Imagine if we had nominated him? The scandal broke a few weeks before the election. McCain would have won and by this point the Wasilla Snowbilly prolly would have had him offed and moved her entire feakshow fambly & attendant reality teevee crew into the WH.

Not to rush things, there will be the trial and all, but after John gets settled at Club Fed will he be able to post about his new roomie – Butturstick and compare notes on fudge packing with Mittens?

Johnny might also check out an olde issue of Forbes that provides a list of the best prisons as a service for their white collar crime readers.

SayItWithWookies June 3, 2011 at 12:49 pm

Some of the action scenes are great, of course — it's the major plot premises that are ridiculous. But I'd best stop before I say something wildly inaccurate and rue (again!) picking a handle entirely inconsistent with my lack of regard or attention to the Star Wars universe's characters and situations.

hagajim June 3, 2011 at 12:49 pm

This is the worst thing ever! Way worse than causing the deaths of well over 1,500 soldiers while killing many many more of the browns. We ought to be outraged.

4TheTurnstiles June 3, 2011 at 1:00 pm

You make it sound like starting an endless, unwinnable 3 trillion dollar war abroad on false pretenses is more than just a lapse in judgment.

prommie June 3, 2011 at 2:54 pm

There was some flap recently about massive, incredible corruption in the world financial markets, too, wasn't there?

And something about rigged derivatives deals in commodities and oil markets, that have resulted in a worldwide spike in food and fuel prices, pushing some into poverty, and pushing some of the poor into stravation, all orchestrated by the same "too big to fail" crooked financiers.

Glad to know the feds have put the hammer down on evil evil Johnny for sticking his penis in a woman he didn't have a license to fuck. You know, that marriage license, right, isn't that the problem, he didn't have a license to fuck this one? And besides, its dirty, dirty, dirty sex, bad bad wicked dirty sex, nothing at all like torture and war crimes and economic pillage.

Biel_ze_Bubba June 3, 2011 at 12:59 pm

Negotiations between Edwards' attorneys and federal prosecutors proved fruitless, because "Prosecutors had insisted on a plea to a felony, which would endanger his ability to keep his license to practice law."

The guy has clients? Does he actually have any influence left to peddle?

GOPCrusher June 3, 2011 at 1:58 pm

I thought he just sat in his car with his portable scanner listening for ambulance calls.

prommie June 3, 2011 at 1:04 pm

Well, the moral of the story is "pay for your mistress with your own money." But "sex is bad" explains the general tone of the reaction to the story, the revulsion and hate.

finallyhappy June 3, 2011 at 1:37 pm

For me, it is cheating on your wife that is a problem- esp your sick wife.

Gunner Asch June 3, 2011 at 1:25 pm

Edwards caused a strange role reversal in our family. My wife normally has perfect pitch in slime detection, but she always liked him. I, on the other hand, am forever failing to see the next thievery/general scummy behavior coming (except for Republicans, that's expected) and yet had a visceral revulsion for him the moment I first saw him.

mrblifil June 3, 2011 at 1:40 pm

And with that, Obama's reelection chances are toast…

You'd think setting up a "charity" and accepting donations, only to have the "charity" pay 90% of the money to you, as a spokesperson and consultant, is way more sleazy and illegal than this.

cmputrwizard June 3, 2011 at 4:48 pm

In a country that sees no illegalities in what Bush, Cheney, et al., did, of course, John Edwards is guilty!!!!!!!!!

Of anything they can think of to keep the bin Laden circus acts ongoing.

prommie June 3, 2011 at 5:04 pm

From Demtard Underground, very interesting: "As Senator, John Edwards vigorously blocked the nomination of U.S. District Judge Terrence Boyle, a Bush selection with a horrible civil rights record. Edwards held his ground for years in the face of tremendous pressure from the White House, the Republican Senate majority and the powers that be in North Carolina to keep this judge from moving up to the U.S. Court of Appeals, one step below the Supreme Court.

George E.B. Holding, the Bush-appointed U.S. Attorney in North Carolina who has waged a long investigation and pushed an indictment based on grounds that most legal experts and scholars agree is shaky at best was Judge Boyle's law clerk, a unique position of trust, confidence that more often than not forms the basis of a lifetime of appreciation and loyalty."

Why am I not mad at him, anymore, at least politically? I just don't care. He is so unimportant and irrelevant to me and to the political system of this country that I.just.don't.care.

BTW, Andrew Young is a Grade A scumball and whore, himself, but that is to be expected when your boss is who he is. Son-of-mill-worker!

DemmeFatale June 4, 2011 at 11:11 am

I never trusted him, but heard from insiders that Elizabeth was actually the brilliant one.
I don't know what to make of the fact that supposedly she knew about this when he was running.

This from an article about Rachel Mellon in the NYT:

"After Mr. Edwards dropped out of the presidential race in early 2008, Mr. Young said, he still hoped that Mrs. Mellon would give him $50 million and access to her private jet so he could lead a fight against poverty around the world. (This never occurred.)"

The man was willing to sacrifice for the poor and downtrodden of the world and now this. Why do bad things happen to such nice people?

Hey, you guys:

Remember when Johnny Boy abruptly quit his campaign?
And in contrast to how smooth and articulate he'd always sounded before, he was stammering and fumfering and looked positively ashen?
But that probably didn't have anything to do with this.

This is obviously the fault of The Geigh.

I was a supporter of his and I hope he lives out his life in penury and infamy, but this is a waste of taxpayer money. They're going to have a very hard time proving the money was not spent in order to improve his standing in the polls.

Shocked, I tell you!

I wonder if he can still get Dave Matthews to play the wedding if it's in prison?

I hope the Butthole Surfers open for them.
