John Edwards Indicted, Arrest Warrant Issued

Friday, June 3, 2011

Former Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards was indicted by a Grand Jury this morning on criminal charges that he broke campaign finance laws to cover up his extramarital affair with Rielle Hunter.

I reported Edwards would be indicted as early as June back on May 25th.

The indictment was handed down by a Federal Grand Jury in Raleigh, NC and says Edwards faces charges on six counts. A warrant has been issued for Edwards’ arrest.

At issue is hundreds of thousands of dollars given to Hunter and Andrew Young by Edwards’ supporters, Rachel “Bunny” Mellon and Fred Baron, to keep the pair in hiding. Prosecutors argue that the money amounted to illegal campaign contributions because they allowed Edwards to continue with his 2008 presidential bid.

The chapter is a sad end to a once promising political career. Edwards was said to be on then-Sen. Barack Obama’s shortlist for vice president after Obama won the 2008 Democratic primary.

    0_&_0. Case closed.

    Edwards is a sleaze.

    I can’t imagine the mess if Obama had put him on the ticket and all this came out after the election. I’m certain Obama would replace him and Michele, well, I think Edwards might feel the wrath of an angry, black woman up along side his pretty face.

    I don’t get John Edwards.

    He had a smart, attractive wife and partner in Elizabeth Edwards but he threw her out with the bath water for the mannish-looking Rielle Hunter? Seriously? What a dope.

    I predict he’s lawyered up and they will work out a plea deal, avoiding prison. Eric Holder is a pussy when it comes to enforcement.

    I’d like to see the alleged sex tape. Evidently, John Edwards has a freakishly big cock and it’s well on display in the tape. Even bigger than Anthony Weiner.

    If he’s smart, Johnny Boy will get with it and sell the tape for $119 a copy. He’ll make a fortune and he can take care of his whore and his kid.

    The feds will reach a plea deal.

    I just can’t see John Edwards going to jail. He’s one of the gang.

    I always had a bad vibe from Edwards, he always seemed slick, and shifty to me. I lost all respect for him when he decided the campaign trail was more important than his wife going through chemo for advanced stage breast cancer.
    Come to find out it was campaigning & an affair, & a love child & hush money.

    I hope the bastard is disbarred.
