Posted on 03/03/2010 10:50:37 AM PST by Beaten Valve
The ultimate fall from grace, a Federal grand jury is about to indict John Edwards, The ENQUIRER has learned exclusively.
In another shocker, close sources say Edwards' estranged wife Elizabeth could help send the former presidential candidate to jail!
Edwards, the disgraced two-time Presidential loser, is being investigated by the feds, including the FBI and IRS, for possible campaign violations related to paying his mistress Rielle Hunter.
The grand jury has been meeting since April 2009, and insiders say an indictment is imminent.
"John is terrified that he's going to be indicted," a friend told The ENQUIRER.
"While he believes he's done nothing illegal in trying to hide his extramarital affair with Rielle and their daughter, he thinks the Feds are going to make an example of him."
This is too sweet....couldn’t happen to a more deserving guy. ROFLMAO.....
Could be one of Zero’s first pardons.
The Enquirer has rediscovered hard nosed journalism.
The story does say he is going to be indicted. But also says Edwards is afraid he will be indicted.
That close to being the choice of Liberals for POTUS. Liberals = Devoid Of Morals
Haha, they wouldn’t be indicting him for “hiding” his mistress and their love child, they would be indiciting him for theft of campaign funds.
Doubt it.I think Zero is clearing the field of a few primary contenders.
The main difference between the National Enquirer reporters and most of the leftist media is that they actually do research rather than just regurgitate talking points.
It’s the Enquirer. But I wish this was real.
The wife and I were talking about this fiasco 5 or 6 weeks ago, I said I couldn’t believe he hasn’t been indicted on the campaign fund/Rielle Hunter thing, he’s now in real trouble.
This is the type of man responsible for soaring health costs. He collected millions from obgyns for alleged mistakes they made in delivering babies.
Women die in childbirth, babies are born with palsy, etc. Always have, always will. Enter a John Edwards and you have drs that pay a million dollars a year for obstretric malpractice insurance.
Live by the sword....
Edwards will never run again so I doubt that.
[Could be one of Zeros first pardons.]
Yes, and the media will get Obama a pass by saying it all about sex.
yeah the guy Rolling Stone(d) once gushed over as “The
>>If he weren’t rich, handsome and so well married, you might feel a little sorry for John Edwards. Never before in the 231-year history of our republic have the inalienable traits that Edwards possesses — his fair skin and a Y chromosome — been anything but a prerequisite for presidential politics. Today, his race and gender stand a chance of derailing his campaign altogether...But counting Edwards out would be a big mistake. Flying below the radar, the former vice-presidential candidate is pulling off a feat that Democratic consultants have long considered impossible: staking out the most progressive platform among the viable candidates while preserving an aura of electability.
Elizabeth is getting the ultimate ex-wife revenge. Sue him for all he’s worth, help put him in jail. Hope she lives to see him behind bars.
Yup. Hillary is next.
John Edwards...NY Governor Dave Patterson...Charlie Wrangle...maybe they can reserve a cell block just for Dems.
The BIG secret is out of the bag as mainstream media trumpets the historic news that the NATIONAL ENQUIRER has been accepted into the Pulitzer Prize competition for its exhaustive investigation of the John Edwards Conspiracy and Cover-Up.
The scoop was broken by Emily Miller at Huffington Post as rumors of our acceptance into the competition by the prestigious journalism committee ignited the blogosphere.
“The Pulitzer Prize Board has officially accepted The National Enquirer’s submissions for breaking the John Edwards scandal, according to sources close to the Board. In a historic move, the Pulitzer Board conceded that the self-proclaimed tabloid is qualified to compete with mainstream news outlets for journalism’s most prestigious prize.
“The Enquirer is in the running for the Pulitzer in two categories: “Investigative Reporting” and “National News Reporting” for The National Enquirer staff,” Ms. Miller announced exclusively at HuffPo.
Quickly The New York Times - for many THE Paper of record - made it even more official with their elegant headline: “Enquirer Is Eligible for Pulitzer”. Writer Richard Perez-Pena analyzed the Pulitzer committee’s turn-around in accepting the ENQUIRER entry after initially dismissing the very notion.
The Times reported: Sig Gissler, administrator of the prizes, says he and his colleagues never publicly discuss the eligibility of any specific publication. “We apply our criteria, and if publications meet them, we allow them to participate.”
But with a grassroots effort steamrolling the viral landscape, Gawker.com analyzed the situation point by point in their historic article: “There’s NO Good Reason the National Enquirer Shouldn’t Win a Pulitzer Prize”
And MediaBistro even has a poll (yes, you can vote in it) on whether or not the Pulitzer Committee should award The ENQUIRER investigation into John Edwards’ alleged abuse of campaign funds to fund a conspiracy of silence:
Ms. Miller concluded in her Huffington Post exclusive: “The massive grassroots campaign by the public to push the Pulitzer Board to recognize the national importance of The Enquirer’s reporting of John Edwards shows the best of Americans’ core values - hard work, fairness and equality for all - even for tabloids.”
If he had any guts or honor he’d Admiral Borda himself.
And they haven’t been wrong yet about this scumbag.
Silky Pony will make someone a nice play toy like Big Bart...
The Enquirer is reliable.
Edwards needs to be charged.
This news is actually posted on Huff-N-Puff this AM:
If the Enquirer keeps breaking stories with real substance and truth they will certainly increase market share over the Leftist newsprint rags.
If Edwards was acting in concert with his lawyer to move money around then I believe that would constitute RICO charges...
Walkin’ through the Big Yard, whistling “I Feel Pretty”.
They still make up junk; however, I am more curious as to who is after this man?
Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy. What a slimeball John Edwards is.
He’ll make a nice prison wife
Are you forgetting who initially broke this story; who never gave up on this story and had the guts to persue it and corner Edwards in a hotel bathroom in the middle of the night (like a trapped rat!) even when the MSM ignored the story?
What, you don't believe it is true because you haven't heard it in the MSM?
Most cell blocks are already filled with Obama voters
If Edwards goes to prison he'll be lucky if he ever walks again.
Time for another North Carolina lawyer to lose his law license.
John Edwards? Didn’t his father work in a mill?
National Enquirer: GRAND JURY TO INDICT (John) EDWARDS
National Enquirer ^ | March 3, 2010
I’m starting to wonder about that. Mill workers usually don’t raise effeminate sissies.
Bill Ayers will be his first...Edwards could certainly be his second.If the price is right,of course.
If you are reading Rolling Stone for serious news you’ve got problems. If you are reading Rolling Stone so that you are aware of what idiots take seriously, then that’s not so bad.
