A few things bother me.

John Edwards was a rich man, and a lawyer.

Why would he be so stupid as to use campaign funds for this cover up? Too cheap to use his own money?

John Edwards is a Democrat.

Strange that Government is so hard of him. Makes you wonder who he pissed off in the administration.

Next we all know that there are a lot of funny things that happened in Obama’s fund raising, when do we see the investigation into his activities?

No, he was afraid of his wife, you apparently kept the checkbook and ran the family finances. She would have noticed.

“Why would he be so stupid as to use campaign funds for this cover up? Too cheap to use his own money?”

Two points:

1) There’s a good chance he neve thought the funds were campaign funds since they were transferred directly from his supporters to his mistress. Indeed, this is the tough part of the indictment for the feds sincde they’re alledging the funds were campiagn money, although never treated by Edwards as campaign money, because the money was used to keep his mistress quiet, thereby enabling Edwards to campaign as the upright family man he wasn’t.

2) Using his own money to support the slut would have exposed him to less campiagn financing risk; however, that large an expenditure of family funds probably would have caught Elizabeth’s interest, resulting in difficult questions that would have caused the soft, brown, smelly stuff to hit the fan.

Politicians are arrogant. Look at Weiner...
