John Edwards Mugshot Released
Washington Post ^ | June 15, 2011 | Matt DeLong

Posted on 06/15/2011 12:40:55 PM PDT by lbryce


Damn, am I fine lookin' or what?!!!

Just days after he was indicted on federal charges of using illegal campaign donations to conceal his mistress from voters, the U.S. Marshals Service on Wednesday released the mugshots of former Sen. John Edwards (D-N.C).

Edwards, who was the 2004 Democratic vice presidential nominee, pleaded not guilty to the charges. The six-count indictment triggered immediate criticism from a range of campaign finance and legal experts, who said the government’s case is unprecedented and appears weak. They questioned whether it would survive the fierce defense being mounted by Edwards’s lawyers, who contend that his actions did not constitute a crime.

The former senator has been the subject of a federal investigation since at least early 2009, when Edwards confirmed that political groups linked to him were among the potential targets of a probe in the aftermath of his affair with former campaign aide and videographer Rielle Hunter. In January 2010, after months of denials, Edwards admitted to being the father of Hunter’s daughter, Quinn. Shortly afterwards, Edwards separated from his wife, Elizabeth Edwards, who died after a long bout with cancer in December.

How nice to see various good Democrats in legal trouble and/or scandals. Edwards and Weiner are poster boys for bad behavior, and cover-ups which ended up getting them both in deeper trouble.

It’s hard to be sympathetic since they are so arrogant, felt they could do whatever they want, that the rules the rest of us live by don’t apply to them because they are special or good Democrats, or whatever rationalization they told themselves.

I reject the statist games of prejudicial pretrial publicity through perp walks and mug shots and unethical comments on matters pending before the courts. These chickenshirt tactics all all designed to deny defendants’ rights to a fair trial. I hate Edwards guts but an injustice to one is an injustice to us all. I do not wish it on anyone , but being wrongly accused is a civics lesson you will never forget.

You sure that isn’t a joke? Where’s the placard with his booking number and the height chart? Did they give him hair gel and a stylist before picture? Not the least bit contrite with that big toothy campaign smile, huh.

Somebody who doesn't want their mugshot to look like a mugshot. He'd get even more grief if it looked something like this:

Edwards, if convicted, would most likely get probation, not prison. If by some freak happenstance he was actually sentenced to prison, it would be one of those Club Fed resorts for white collar criminals. He would never be sentenced to general population. Different justice for me than for thee, as even those Einsteins, Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan, well know.

Whatever, I’ve always found the overt glee with which some men contemplate the sadistic homosexual prison rape of other men...disturbing.

You seem to forget John Edwards lives in that other America, not the one we common folk live in.

Tom Delay’s mug-shot caused the libs heads to explode. Here, we’re joking about how many male cosmetics were used by Edwards before his glam/mug-shot.

Apparently it was a total disaster - surprise!

I’m amazed anybody would buy a ticket.
