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.
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]Related
