Since Anthony Weiner is basically cock-blocking all news that isn't Sarah Palin related, this has sort of escaped everyone's radar. But John Edwards is finally catching the boomerang end of the Karmic loop.
Former senator and 2008 presidential candidate John Edwards has been indicted, CNN has learned.
A grand jury has been investigating the allegation that money given
to support Edwards' mistress, Rielle Hunter, by benefactors of Edwards
should have been considered campaign donations - a contention Edwards'
team has disputed.
Personally, I don't particularly see the need for an investigation OR an indictment. If you were dumb enough to donate to Edwards' "Two Americas" campaign thinking that a man who had never seen the second America was smart enough to run the first one, I kind of think you might just deserve to have him spend your hard earned cash making sex tapes no one ever wants to see. Ever. Now, thankfully federal law doesn't see it my way, and a grand jury of Edwards' peers has seen fit to spend further taxpayer dollars putting him on trial for his alleged campaign finance mismanagement. It's not even a comfort to know that it'll be less of a three-ring circus than the Blagojevich cross-examination.
For his sake, I hope he's hired a good attorney. Prison would be a bitch on that hair.
