    John Edwards indicted by grand jury

    John Edwards charged in felony indictment - Politics - More politics - msnbc.com

    RALEIGH, N.C. — A federal grand jury has indicted two-time presidential candidate John Edwards, the culmination of a two-year federal investigation into money used to cover up an extramarital affair during the 2008 presidential election.

    Edwards' attorney Greg Craig was traveling to meet with prosecutors in North Carolina earlier in the day.

    --

    Federal officials have approved criminal charges, deciding that the hundreds of thousands of dollars two Edwards donors gave to help keep his mistress in hiding were contributions that should have been reported publicly by his campaign fund because they aided his bid for the Democratic White House nomination. Edwards' lawyers have argued that the funds were gifts from friends intended to keep the affair a secret from his wife, Elizabeth, who died of cancer in December.
    Well, we all saw that coming. Of course, the asshole wont see a day in prison I bet. House arrest, probation, etc. Yay for the two-tiered legal system! /cynic

    I still just feel really, really bad for his kids. They lose their mom and they find out that their dad is a douche...that's gotta be hard.

    I'd like to see them throw the book at the worthless piece of garbage. Anyone who would cheat on a sick spouse needs to suffer for it and I mean real jail not some slap on the wrist like pulling his License to Practice law. He's never going to work again anyway since he made millions in law suits against Doctors for BS reasons.

    If found guilty, I hope they push this to the full extent of the law. In my personal view, the man is a complete slimeball for what he did to his wife, so I would not be shocked if he committed other questionable acts. I feel for his children.

    Man wants to run for President but can't keep his pants up. Don't men ever think with their mind before thinking with their dick?
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Hmmmmm. I was always under the impression that men's brains were in their dicks.

    Image of the typical male brain. I'd say mine fits this model pretty well.

    1. I really couldn't care at all about the man's personal life.
    2. Don't spend other people's money to finance your personal life.

    He should pay for his financial abuses, but adultery is NOT (and should not be) a crime in this country. Nor is lying about adultery. Though lying about spending money to help lie about adultery on your W-2 is. @_@
