John Edwards' 2008 presidential campaign must repay $2.3 million in federal campaign funds, the Federal Election Commission ruled Thursday.

I'm sure this will get plenty of MSM coverage.
He might have to sell his hair to raise this kind of scratch.

He has $600 million that he legally extorted from doctors with his fetus-channeling scam. This payback is tip money, and it won't even come from his personal fortune.
When's he going to prison?

I really feel cheated on this...Not only should he have to wear a pink/orange one piece and do a perp-walk to the state pen, but his fine should have been in the 10’s of millions of dollars to compensate all those businesses and industries he and his ambulance chasing bud ruined!!!

2.3 million means John-boy washes a helluva lot of prison laundry.

Well the Times did its best to provide cover for a fellow leftist.

I would love to see this RAT hero bankrupt and in prison.
