Every time we forget about this man and all of the things he's done, something else surfaces about him that is just as — if not more — terrible than the last!
John Edwards is currently being tried in Greensboro, N.C. for illegally using campaign contributions to cover up his affair with Rielle Hunter while he was running for President. Today, his former aide Andrew Young took to the stand and delivered even MORE despicable information about the shamed Senator's behavior.
According to Young, when he delivered the news to Edwards that his mistress was pregnant with his illegitimate child:
Oh, it just keeps on getting better and better with this guy, doesn't it?
According to The National Enquirer, Federal election officials are claiming that John Edwards owes taxpayers over $2.1 MILLION in public matching funds, because he's apparently still spending money through the Presidential campaign he ran in 2008!
Reports apparently filed last week show that his primary campaign from four years ago spent $836,712 in 2011 - on airfare, hotel rooms, and cellphones!
Guess that's not gonna fare well in his indictment! You know, for all those campaign finance violations!
Rod Blagojevich was found guilty by jurors on 17 of 20 charges today.
The charges included attempting to sell Barack Obama’s vacated U.S. Senate seat, which was a main focus of prosecutors banking on the fact that he was actually "serious" when he made the comments over the phone.
The former governor and his wife were "shocked" (really?) at the verdict and he had this to say:
"I frankly am stunned. There's not much left to say other than we want to get home to our little girls and talk to them and explain things to them and then try to sort things out."
More like get home and enjoy the smell of sweet, free, air as much as possible before you get put in the clink!
But really, it's good to see a dirty politician get taken down. He and John Edwards could request to be bunkmates, maybe!
