AP source: Edwards could be indicted within days
Associated Press ^ | May 25, 2011 | MIKE BAKER and GARY D. ROBERTSON

Posted on 05/25/2011 10:16:00 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- Federal prosecutors have completed a wide-ranging investigation into John Edwards' political dealings and could indict the two-time presidential candidate within days, a person familiar with the matter said Wednesday.

Edwards could still strike a plea deal to avoid an indictment, said the person, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the case's sensitivity.

Oh horrors. Say it isn't so. Yet he is probably less corrupt than anyone excretd from the Chicago political machine.

Is Edwards being made an example so Democrat politicians can rebuke the (accurate) assertion by Republicans that Democrats aren’t held reponsible for their crimes? Or maybe Edwards ticked off a Democrat VIP who’s now getting revenge?

Barbara: [whistles] Nice butt. That’s what they’ll say.
Ken Kessler: I beg your pardon?
Barbara: Nice butt. That’s what they’ll say on your first day, in the men’s club.
Ken Kessler: The men’s club?
Barbara: Mmm. The San Quentin Country Club. With a cute little rear end like that, you’ll be the belle of the ball. Your dance card’ll be filled every day. You’ll be so popular, making all kinds of new, close friends. Big, ugly, hairy friends! Not that you’ll ever see what they look like, ‘cause you’ll be facing the other way.
Ken Kessler: You’re very good at this. You should write children’s books.

Great. Now can they FINALLY get around to indicting Obammie?

After all, they already have indictements against his co-conspirators Blago and Rezko and others.

NOW is the time to take down the most corrupt of all politicians.

(Hey. I can DREAM, can’t I?)

I'm glad to see the AP is sticking to their style sheet. Never mention the party of an indicted politician if the party is Democrat.

Hard to believe that this guy was a serious, viable candidate for POTUS a mere 3 years ago. What a fall.

Couldn’t happen to a slimier guy.

Well, after all, he's NOT one of Holder's 'people' -- plus, this conveniently and permanently eliminates a possible 2012 challenger for the throne (albeit a LONG, long-shot).

And after all, Mr. Alinsky DID teach all of them to never let a crisis go to waste. I'll bet John Edwards never envisioned THIS outcome when he hitched his wagon to THAT star, though!

With that said, this could not be happening to a more deserving selfish, vile, amoral, leech-like piece of human excrement.

John Edwards' ruthlessly self-centered narcissism is ALMOST a match for Barack Obama's -- and THAT'S saying something.

It has become apparent to me (I guess I’m slow, not to realize sooner) that the Democrat Party does not merely represent people of a different social/economic/political theory. No, it is the party of misfits. Every major member of that Party has some serious mental defects. I first thought Michael Savage had coined a clever phrase, but consider what he said: “Liberalism is a mental disorder”. Any totalitarian regime is led by mental misfits. Normal people would not want any part of it.

Well, the word ‘platypus’ is not in the article, but I would venture a guess that you were referring to the word ‘democrat’, which is also not included.

Should we all start emailing the AP ‘innocently’ inquiring as to Mr. Edwards’ party affiliation? But no, the sarcasm would probably be too subtle for the AP to recognize.

He definitely deserves it but it points out just how bad our system is. As is the case with all Dems, the MSM protects him, promotes him and ignores any evidence that there is a problem until it is so obvious and he has completely discredited himself. Then they pile on when it doesn’t matter anymore. Just think—this guy came very, very close to being vice president. Its more damning evidence that the MSM runs defense for the Dems until the Dems self destruct. Very dangerous for the republic.

If no "normal people" voted for them, they'd never win an election.

It is a really sad state of affairs we are in, but I really believe he would be a better President than Obama. Not that it is saying much about either man’s character.

One thing I love is the recent article about his SCREAMING in anger at his mistress for making the sex tape that now is entered into evidence.

Hellloo? He is visible on the tape, looking into the camera, according to his friend Andrew who had the pleasure of viewing it. He knew he was being recorded, full frontal, en flagrante. WHILE HE WAS RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT AND WHILE HIS WIFE, THE MOTHER OF HIS LITTLE CHILDREN, WAS FACING TERMINAL CANCER.

And he agrees to a sex tape, and now is angry that his floozy suggested the idea??? He is not roped and hogtied in the tape.

This needs a Seth Meyers “Oh, REALLY?” segment. Maybe you should have considered that making a sex tape with a MISTRESS wasn’t a smart idea WHILE ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL!!!

(Don’t you just bet he did his hair right before they started the camera???)
