John Edwards Facing A Federal Probe

By Wyatt Earp | May 4, 2009


Oh, that’s a shame. He would probably be better off if it was an anal probe. The government can be much more rough than the aliens from Mars.

RALEIGH, N.C. – His once-prominent political career is buried and the turmoil of his marriage is playing out in public. Now, John Edwards is facing a federal inquiry.

The two-time Democratic presidential candidate acknowledged Sunday that investigators are assessing how he spent his campaign funds — a subject that could carry his extramarital affair from the tabloids to the courtroom. Edwards’ political action committee paid more than $100,000 for video production to the firm of the woman with whom Edwards had an affair.

I hope she was worth it, Johnny Boy.

The former North Carolina senator said in a carefully worded statement that he is cooperating.

“I am confident that no funds from my campaign were used improperly,” Edwards said in the statement. “However, I know that it is the role of government to ensure that this is true. We have made available to the United States both the people and the information necessary to help them get the issue resolved efficiently and in a timely matter.”

While Edwards focused his comment on campaign funds, he also had a range of other fundraising organizations — including two nonprofits and a poverty center at his alma mater — that have come under scrutiny. ()

Too funny. Oh well, I guess Edwards will learn about the “two Americas” up close and personal real soon. Unfortunately for him, the former senator is too pretty to go from the penthouse to the outhouse.

    I wonder how he will adjust going from 23,000 square feet of house to less than 800 in a cell. I can’t wait for his wife to get the gold mine and for him to get the shaft. MUD
