    Re: Verdict Reached in John Edwards Case

    Christ onna cracker, 4 pages of replies and not onna you guys told me what Edwards was charged with. I had to Google it.

    Five counts of campaign finance fraud, it appears.

    John Edwards News - The New York Times

    I have difficulty keeping my ****heels sorted; is this the guy who disappeared from the governor's office for a week and then reappeared, claiming he'd been lost on the Appalachian Trail? The one who was later shown to have really been in some South American country partying with a gorgeous woman-not-his-wife?

    In any event, the fault, IMO, lies with the prosecution. Sounds as if the indictment was defective -- they probably should have charged tax evasion if they believed he absorbed campaign contributions into his personal finances.

    had second thoughts about this
    maybe he was committing a mea culpa for any prospective jurors should he be re-tried
    trying to soften his image
    smart attorney. would not put it past him

    How soon do you think it will be until he shows up on MSNBC with a talk show? Perhaps as a co-anchor with Client #9?

    hell, after seeing msnbc giving al 'tawanna brawley' sharpton his own show, i would not rule out that possibility

    but i don't view it as a likelihood
    i expect he will head a non-profit looking to help disadvantaged kids
    as a way to partially redeem his heavily damaged reputation
    my guess is that he will be launched on that course by billy ray hall of the nc rural center

    His whole life he has spent stealing from people.
    It's not illegal to make a fortune by ripping off doctors and insurance companies, is it? I thought you'te big on "if it's not illegal, it's legally justified" stuff? I guess it's a matter of convenience for you, is it not?

    Poll: Just three percent have favorable view of John Edwards - Political Hotsheet - CBS News

    RIP Elizabeth.
    It's not illegal to be a massive scumbag either. How's that tanslates into guilt of a crime?

    You tell me. I never suggested it was a crime, or that Edwards deserved jail.

    Maybe so, it's still not illegal to be a massive scumbag, is it?

    BTW, nobody in Zimmerman's case ever suggested that following someone is a crime or that he deserved jail for just following.
