    I'm implying that there are rules to various types of accounts, and campaign funds are a type of regulated account.

    A pit-stop in the campaign coffer is perhaps akin to laundering and likely has tax issues. If campaign rules forbid such use of money, then it was a private gift funneled illegally through donation accounts.

    I bet you don't think Bill Clinton was impeached either do you?
    Whenever the Clinton impeachment comes up in Europe I ask these offended Leftists why he was impeached. It's been 15-years and only one person from The Enlightened Continent has answered correctly.

    And Edwards... was such a great hope for the Dems once upon a time. I think he's a good poster boy for their party. Phony, hypocritical, a divisive snake oil salesman... just a plain puke.

    I don't think disguising the nature of this money is a problem. Laundering, funneling, still labels, where's the real harm? I remembering being called many names as child. Still some harm has to underly a true claim of a crime. How can you break the law in the true sense if no one is harmed?

    If there is a tax issue, I would assume he may have somehow unfairly benefited from this funnel. But how so, and to what amount? If he did, let the punishment fit the crime. But, that remains to be proven if indeed he did benefit. If it can't be proven, then there is no wrong doing.

    This stinks of a disguised attempt to catch him on insignificant infractions, because they can't get him based upon their moral preferences.

    The farm worker, they take all the credit for work of the simple apple, when the sun is the one responsible for 99% of the work.

    I think the farm worker should get credit for all the farm workers, hundreds of generations, who made that apple possible.

    Nah. That doesn't work cause you gotta give the sun the same credit. I'm tired from the time lord thing.

    Justice Department looks to charge Edwards

    Washington (CNN) - The Justice Department has authorized prosecutors to bring criminal charges against former presidential candidate and Senator John Edwards, sources with knowledge of the investigation confirm to CNN.
    An indictment could be averted if prosecutors and lawyers for Edwards reach a plea deal.

    Edwards is aware the government is preparing to bring an indictment and is now considering his options, one source with knowledge of the investigation told CNN.
    From what I understand of the case, the charges would be because he misused campaign funds to cover up his affair. If this is true, I would hope that they throw the book at him. Although, I did find this part of the article funny.

    Edwards has talked to friends and associates about wanting to start a public interest law firm, and "doesn't want to lose his license, not to mention he is terrified of going to jail," the source added.

    I feel bad for his kids. He'll get more than he deserves, but those kids have been through hell.
