Report: Former Presidential Candidate John Edwards Faces Indictment for Campaign Violations
Published May 25, 2011 | NewsCore
WASHINGTON -- Prosecutors can seek an indictment against former North Carolina Senator and two-time Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards for allegedly using campaign donations to cover up an extra-marital affair and love child, ABC News reported late Tuesday.
The network, citing sources, said the Department of Justice has given the go-ahead for Edwards to be prosecuted and the former politician has been informed of the development.
Edwards may now accept a plea deal or face trial.

What would it take?
Breathing while white?
Yes. He is now expendable.
I guess I overlooked the obvious, race.
Even if he cops a plea and makes a deal, prison time HAS to be included.
The $1,000,000 in campaign funds he 'misused' in hiding his girlfriend and (gag) 'lover child' isn't chump change, and to get off with probation would be a miscarriage of justice. So no. Johny has to go off to Club Fed.
My only disappointment is it won't be in Marion, IL were John Gotti was sent. As at Marion even the Teflon Don had to hire protection. He was getting his head banged by 'Holder's People' and wound up paying the Aryan Brotherhood $50,000 a year for protection. (He worked out a Hit deal w/ the AB but it never went off)
The 'Breck Girl' would have to pay $10K a month to the AB for protection, or he'd never be able to sit down again.
“Edwards must have really pissed off someone in Barrys administration. What did he do?”
He’s not a Black Panther...
This may present the paradox that ends the world. Edwards may wind up in two places at once. Both in the squad car as he’s arrested AND chasing the squad car in pursuit of a new court case.
Looks like Edwards left his America, and came over to ours.
Poor Johnny, I guess he couldn’t spin the Clinton BS that “everyone lies about sex”. What a schmuck.
Hell, even Jesse Jackson pulled it off.
But it is not the only legal trouble he faces. A former aide, Andrew Young, says he has a videotape and pictures showing Mr. Edwards and Ms. Hunter having sex. Ms. Hunter has sued to get them back and said that Mr. Young used them to secure deals for a book and film. Mr. Young had pretended for a while to be the childs father to protect Mr. Edwards. He wrote about the experience in a tell-all book, The Politician.
Mr. Young is being represented in Hollywood by Ari Emanuel, brother of Rahm Emanuel, the new mayor of Chicago.
Now, I think we should all take a moment to reflect on this, and show ourselves to be bigger people by NOT gloating or expressing any joy or pleasure over this news. We are, after all, adults, and better people, and, and, and....
ahh, never mind - I CAN’T STAND IT ANYMORE!!!!! BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!!!! FROG-MARCH PERP WALK COMING UP!!!!!!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!!!! SILKY PONY’S GOING TO BE BUBBA’S LOVE SPONGE!!! HAHAHAH!
Whew...OK.. better now...what was I saying about being adults????
He deserves everything he has coming to him. Still can’t help but feel sorry for his children.

On3e more reason why REAL FReepers love NFHale.......... ;-)
When you consider that Edwards made millions fleecing people on phony lawsuits, It appears that a certain segment of our population has just redressed the balance......
Remember when Edwards wife Elizabeth (Liz) and Chris Matthews set up Ann Coulter with the surprise phone call with Elizabeth whining “Stop the personal attacks please” ? (Excuse me Liz but Ann’s job was to make fun of your husband. Ann wasnt running for president. )
Well at the time Holyer than thou Liz Edwards was hiding the fact that Edwards was taking care of another women in the bedroom, keeping it secret so her husband could continue in the Dem presidential primary. Some saint, just like Hillary.
“...On3e more reason why REAL FReepers love NFHale.......... ;-)..”
It’s my magnetic personality, right? My charm? My charisma? My humility and modesty - they’re two of my BETTER qualities!!!!
(I crack myself up...I really, really do...)
I never have a problem laughing at Libs...
She (Mrs Edwards) used her cancer as a POLITICAL CRUTCH, counting on the sympathy/empathy vote to get her scumbag, two-timing, effeminate, limp-wristed, bimb-chasing, butt-munching Breck Girl of a husband elected - IOW, she KNEW her Earthly time was severky limited (basically, ALL of us are), and STILL tried to foist the douchebag on us as President - and WE’D be stuck with him after she was long gone...(Come to think of it...he MIGHT have been a slight improvement over “Pres_ent Marxy-Marx Skidmarx”, after all we KNOW Edwards was at least BORN here...)
I have to admit, I “felt” bad (brr...my liberal side trying to worm its way through - down, boy, DOWN, I say) when I heard she was diagnosed with that disease; it’s a horrible thing, and as a humn being, you do feel compassion for someone so afflicted.
THAT brief momenty of sentimental Hale-ian Humanity ended when she used it as a political tool. She went from object of sympathy to Full Throttle Piece o’ Feces to me in the blink of an eye.
And you know what?
I don’t feel a damn bit bad about it. One less democrat A**hole, as far as I’m concerned, and that’s NEVER a bad thing.
And now, upon hearing that Silky Pony Breck Girl may very soon be occupying a cell with “one of the little folks” that he claims to have been for...you know, Jamal, or Malik, or Pedro or Julio, or Bubbaclyde, well, that just makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside...and outside...and just about everywhere...
Heeheeeheeehheee (giggling like little kid here)...
Was that wrong? Was that harsh? Was that mean? Do I care?
Nah...think I’ll have a shot o’ Jack and a beer or two to celebrate.
You write well. We should save our sympathy for the victims of the progressive nanny state. There are many.
Thanks for the compliment, brother.
At the end of the day, we’re ALL victims of the progressives. Even the useful idiots who support them out of ignorance...
They hate all of us equally, because they hate themselves.
That’s all they’re about, at the end of the day - Hatred.
And it shows in everything they do.
