Skip to comments.Elizabeth Edwards’ revenge from the grave: She 'secretly recorded death-bed video testimony'

In a final act of revenge, Elizabeth Edwards secretly recorded a testimony in her dying days that helped prosecutors indict husband John last week, it was claimed today.
John Edwards is due to stand trial on charges that could lead to a 30-year jail sentence after he pleaded not guilty on Friday to using $925,000 in campaign funds to cover up an affair and love child.
The estranged wife of the former presidential candidate is alleged to have filmed a damning testimony that was central to the prosecutions case for charges.
Friends said the cancer victim, who died in December, wanted to haunt her estranged husband and his mistress Rielle Hunter, with whom he fathered a child and made a sex tape
Bruce Baron, an expert on federal law, said: The value of a potential dying declaration, or tape, containing the testimony of Elizabeth Edwards, is devastating to any case or defence that Edwards would have.
On the secret video, Elizabeth spells out everything she knew about Johns affair with Rielle and how he managed to cover it up for so long, a source told the Enquirer.
She also spills all of Johns lies many of which could be what sends him up the river.
Elizabeth wanted to haunt John and Rielle literally from her grave and she has, the source told the Enquirer.
She hated them with a vengeance. This was a woman who took her final breath in the same bed where John once had sex with his mistress.

‘That’s Carolina-speak for “she was an opinionated, nasty witch but I associated with her anyway.”’
I love the traditional South.
It is a place where “Good day to you, sir” if delivered sharply means the same as “F**k you” in a Blue State.
‘The sad thing about Edwards was that no one felt any loyalty to him at all. Even his dying wife wanted to get him more than she wanted to preserve her energy and live longer’.————
Stunning you would post that. No loyalty to him??? For over a year the media wouldn’t even report it (and longer because some knew). Until pictures came out in a rag magazine. No Democrats would comment...
And it says she recorded it on her DEATH bed....and yet you claim her laying in a death bed speaking somehow used up energy that would have let her live longer.
... and a well-timed and delivered “bless your heart” can be the most devastating thing you could possibly say, or a sincere statement of sympathy, depending upon the context.
“Prison is where he belongs - or our laws mean nothing.”
News flash: our laws mean nothing. Ask any experienced lawyer, if you can find an honest one. They are around, but not abundant.
Oh, my. Yes. My cheeks are burning even now with the recollection of a couple of those course corrections.
She reveals herself to have breast cancer the day after the election? This is a deceptive woman. They said she didn’t know until the day after the election. But that meant she had a problem and didn’t reveal/take care of it because it could get in the way of becoming FLOTUS.
I just don’t think much of this woman. Then again, who really knows someones heart? But her actions speak rather loudly.
He will have a lot of time to comb his hair.
“We always knew where we stood with ‘Lizbeth, bless her heart.”
“She was an angry, bitter, liberal woman even before the affair and cancer.”
Being married to a vain sleaze like John Edwards probably made her angry and bitter.
You cause me to miss my kin and my place.
Bless your heart, you made me call them to mind.
Sorry ‘bout the double post, folks.
I believe dying declarations are always admitted in court. Evidence can be found by what she states and it bye bye bubba...
John Edwards is a slime ball. His mistress is not much better, they deserve each other. Elizabeth suffered not only from her cancer but from his behavior. Essentially he killed her twice. Frankly, I hope he does go to jail.
The world is so over the Edwards. I’m as tired of them as I am the Kardashians.
It was't a pretty sight:
I can not celebrate a death occuring in a state of bitterness and hatred, even if it involves two liberals.
This is very sad to me.
I think it’s mainly the fact that Elizabeth, embittered as she was, was hurting emotionally. It was her only way of striking back at Edwards for what he did to her and their kids. Then too I’m told she was a very antagonistic woman during their marriage and that could be a mitigating circumstance as to why Edwards did what he did. It’s not an excuse though. You make a commitment to someone and you stick to it. Other than that you obtain a divorce and go your separate ways.
