'I'd kill myself first!' John Edwards 'suicidal' over facing jail, claim pals
UK Daily Mail ^ | 4/6/11 | Daily Mail Reporter

Posted on 04/06/2011 10:27:44 AM PDT by Do Not Make Fun Of His Ears

Disgraced politician John Edwards is said to be deeply depressed - to the point of being suicidal - over the prospect of a criminal trial that could end with him being jailed if found guilty.

The 57-year-old former Presidential candidate reportedly told a close friend: 'I won't go to jail. I'd kill myself first!'

He has lost 20lb in the last year and is a 'broken spirit,' reports the National Enquirer.

According to the Enquirer, a close source said: 'I think John is suicidal. He knows that if he's indicted, prosecutors will try to get him to serve jail time and make an example of him.

'He's absoluetly despondent over the fear of prison.

'Over the last year, he's lost about 20lb and friends are concerned that he's escaping reality with booze.

This guy came very close to being President or Vice-President. Not that he could be much worse than Obozo.

Not only did dems want him to be President, but the MSM did whatever they could to ‘cover’ for him...

Of course he’s suicidal. He’s a narcissistic prick! It’s ALL about him! He’s done NO wrong! Throw his can in JAIL. If he’s too “good” to sit in a cell, then let him off himself. Sorry — hard to have compassion on someone who only has concern for himself.

Quick! Does he have access to a gun or ammunition?

Just asking in case he needs to borrow one I’d be happy to loan it to him however he only would be permitted to shoot it once.

I hate to sound compasionless, but...

This is a guy that made his fortune sueing people & companies into bankruptcy—a true ambulance chaser in ever sense of the word.

When he was destroying others via the courts, where was his compassion?

British politician John Profumo was disgraced in the early 1960s.

Shortly after his resignation Profumo began to work as a volunteer cleaning toilets at Toynbee Hall, a charity based in the East End of London, and continued to work there for the rest of his life (died in 2006).

He didn't have to. He wasn't sentenced to do it. He had money -- this wasn't "the only job he could get". Profumo did it to pay back society for the shame he had put upon his office.

What the hell has Edwards ever done to indicate his remorse??
