Source: John Edwards has life-threatening heart condition
cnn ^ | 1/12/2012 | By Bill Mears and Michael Martinez

Posted on 01/13/2012 6:33:16 PM PST by tobyhill

A federal judge disclosed Friday that former presidential candidate John Edwards has a life-threatening heart condition, a court source confirmed to CNN.

Edwards had sought a delay in his criminal corruption trial, scheduled to begin this month.

Attorneys and the federal judge met in a North Carolina courtroom Friday afternoon for a status hearing regarding the pending trial of Edwards, a former U.S. senator.

Edwards appeared at Friday's hearing. His lawyers had made the motion for a delay under seal, but some of its details were publicly revealed by the judge in the open hearing.

Quite the coincidence.

The man faces a potential life sentence and that life sentence may not be that long.

He doesn’t have a heart. I guess you could die from that.

Truly sorry to hear about the heart condition. I had thought he only had a mental condition.

If he has a conscience, his stress over the way he treated Elizabeth while she was dieing probably contributed.

Just glad to know he has a heart--who knew?

I feel sorry for the kids. Already lost their mother and now may lose their father. At least in jail, they would be able to visit and write letters. Now with the possibility of death the kids will be orphans at such a young age. They got a raw deal in life. Very awful news.

Why do I seem to doubt the “heart consition” story? It seems as though this scenario has become quite popular lately.

I doubt it too. Wonder if it’s not just something like a-fluttering that can be helped pretty easily, but he’s whupping it up into a huge lawyer story. Wouldn’t that be SUCH a surprise?

I’m wondering if it’s life threatening, how come his surgery isn’t until next month? I’d think you’d get it done asap!

There's a good possibility they would be in different places. I can't believe God would let a trial lawyer in.

My cousin is a prison dentist, so I know they have doctors. I’m sure the NC Department of Corrections could get Edwards a cardiologist — if he really needed one.

I’m not sure Elizabeth was let in either. Not to be judgemental, but from the things I read about her, she wasn’t exactly a saint either.

John Edwards made his fortune suing doctors with bogus claims and wooing juries with fake tears. Now his fate and future may be in the hands of doctors who must pay inflated insurance premiums to practice. God does have a sense of humor.

Guess it depends on what they mean by 'heart' and 'condition'.

This is judicial sophistry, not that such is uncommon to all judges i.e. lawyers. There are thousands plus men who have life threatening heart conditions but how many could be excused from a crime or just a trial for any crime because of such a condition. This is a standout example of judiciary personal miscarriage of justice. Newt is right on this one i.e. judges must be made to go by law for all people not just personal opinions. If they can’t/won’t, terminate there participation in the justice system.

Because if he had a heart condition that was truly ‘life threatening’ then the surgery would be done immediately or in the very near future, not a month from now.

Unless he can’t find a doctor who will operate on him. Then maybe he can just channel some dead doctor and get better on his own.

He's home in the giganto house outside chapel hill. WRAL article said he's not allowed to drive—not that he does anyway. All posturing, but trial could bring it on.

So it is an arrhythmia that causes syncope/fainting and the operation would be ablation to burn the electrical node(s) generating the arrhythmia. can be aggravated by stress, and this wuss would get stressed by a hairdresser.

There are docs in NC who would refuse treating him- these are prob UNC where he did law school. Duke wouldn't treat him or the wife so she went to Boston. What a boring soap opera of arrogant a-holes— y’know, there for the working man in a state where the largest employer is govt- private cos. left because of tort pimps like him. Judge is obama appointee,

Edwards spent his life as a trial lawyer. He made a fortune from lawsuits and making life miserable for others his profession impacted.

He deserves all that is coming to him. Nothing more can be said.

If he doesn’t have the alleged conditioned, put his ass in jail until he does. If he does have the condition, let him have his operation so he lives long enough to serve his sentence.
