John Edwards Has Been Flirting With A Female Juror At His Trial
http://www.businessinsider.com/ ^

Posted on 05/25/2012 12:26:58 PM PDT by jakerobins

ABC News is reporting that John Edwards has been repeatedly flirting with a female juror during his trial, a distraction that "has become so obvious that even Edwards' attorneys have to work to suppress their laughter at the absurdity of it all."

The juror (who is an alternate) is a young woman with jet-black hair. According to the report, "The juror clearly instigated the exchanges. She smiles at him. He smiles at her. She giggles. He blushes."

She probably just wants him for the conjugal visits.

From the time I’ve spent on jury duty, this is clear justification for a “mistrial”.

I would think the prudent thing to do is for the judge to excuse her immediately and name another alternate.

A "mistrial" is the likely result which sleezebag Edwards is aiming for.

This reminds me of the thieves being led off to be hanged in the 17th-century England, who could not resist taking a few purses as they were pushed through the crowd.

The judge running this circus is an Obama appointee.

http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/headlines/2012/05/is-john-edwards-flirting-with-a-female-juror/
“”On Thursday the alternates – three women and one man – caused something of a stir when they showed up in matching bright yellow shirts, hardly bothering to suppress their snickering as the judge addressed the main panel of jurors. Today they are all wearing red.

For nearly four weeks, 16 jurors heard all the evidence in Edwards’ case. After the closing arguments, Judge Catherine Eagles made the unorthodox decision to extend the service of the four alternate jurors, while the primary panel of 12 deliberated the six felony charges. So for the last five days of deliberations, the gang of four alternates has been required to show up at court each day, sent to a holding room with instructions to avoid talking about the case.

Anytime the jurors are in the courtroom, the judge calls the alternates down to keep them apprised of the status of deliberations. And the alternates are also sent to lunch every afternoon with the rest of the jurors...””

Update: According to a tweet from Politico reporter Josh Gerstein, the judge at the John Edwards trial has cleared the courtroom of press and the public to discuss a “jury matter” that has come up.

Hmm ~ Edwards wasn’t exactly trying for a ‘mistrial’ when he was doing Raelle and the Raelians. More like something pretty fundamental and basic in his make-up. It’s like a feeling that he wants to be wanted.

Don’t jump to conclusions. I was on a jury once and the defendant would smile at me and I’d smile back and I still voted to find him guilty of 115 counts of mail fraud and 128 counts of securities fraud. And he ended up with consecutive terms so he won’t see the light of day until sometime in the year 2140.

It all depends on which head Edwards is doing his thinking with.

Edwards has the double suspicion of being a sleazebag lawyer and a lecher who can't control his zipper. All I'm saying is that the judge should take no chances and excuse the alternate juror before things get more complicated.

I can see Rielle this weekend standing at the barbeque grill cutting up some ribs with a big knife. What would be going on in her mind? And what would be going on in HIS mind?

“The judge running this circus is an Obama appointee.”

IMHO, that is NOT good news for Edwards. As I look at this Edwards is being prosecuted for using a campaign donation to pay off his mistress. The problem is that the money for the mistress was never deposited to the campaign account, Edwards never actually had any control of the funds, and the money was not at all used for a campaign expense.

I don’t think this would have been prosecuted under Bush because there’s not much to the case when you really look at it.

That said, I think this was an act of political assassination by the Obama team to neutralize a potential adversary for this year’s Democrat nomination. Edwards, as a former VP candidate, is in the Democrat’s chain of apparent succession and by prosecuting Edwards, even if the case loses, Obama has taken out another political opponent just like he did in his Senate race.

Edwards and Bill Clinton should open the 'Edwards-Clinton School of Adultry' to teach other liberal scumbags how to cheat on their wives.

Of course he’s been flirting with a female juror. As a former slime trial lawyer he would never pass up the opportunity to throw the jury.

The attorney F. Lee Bailey is supposed to have owed some of his courtroom successes to the identification of a certain type of female juror that found him very attractive. This didn’t always work for him but no doubt it does work sometimes.

It’s the same phenomenon that caused females to get in a car with a total stranger named Ted Bundy. Sometimes the brain shuts off when other body parts get tingly. Hey, it got Obama elected, right?
