John Edwards Faces Federal Probe

with 4 comments


Failed and disgraced Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards, whose political action committee paid more than $100,000 to his mistress’ company, acknowledged Sunday that federal investigators were looking into how he handled his campaign funds.

In a carefully worded statement Edwards said, “I am confident that no funds from my campaign were used improperly. 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.”

His political action committee paid Hunter’s firm $100,000 for video production in a four-month span in 2006, and then paid an additional $14,086.50 on April 1, 2007. At the time, the PAC only had $7,932.95 in cash on hand, according to records filed with the Federal Election Commission.

That same day, according to the records, Edwards’ presidential campaign paid the PAC $14,034.61 for what is listed as a “furniture purchase.”

Since announcing the affair, the Kennedy-like Edwards has remained largely secluded. He canceled all his public appearances before the November election because he said he didn’t want to be a distraction for Obama or bombarded with eggs from a disgusted electorate.

His wife, Elizabeth, who is terminally ill with cancer, will soon be releasing a book talking about the affair. In it, she writes that news of the affair made her vomit. She also describes Hunter as “pathetic.”

Don’t feel alone Elizabeth. When we see the lying Democrat John Edwards, we also feel like spewing a little vomit.

  1. The Kennedy brothers made a living womanizing and it didn’t seem to hurt their political careers. Ted even has a drowning to his credit and still made it to the top shelf of politics.

    If John Edward’s problem would have been tax evasion, scratch that- innocent mistake, he would be in line for an Obama Czar position. Instead we get a show that will waste millions of dollars and only produce a slap on the wrist.

  2. It looks bad that Edwards is running around while his wife is dying. That’s a tough nut to crack in anybody’s book. Should be interesting to see how they spin it into being his wife’s fault.

    Ted does have a drowning to his credit, but John and Bobby have Marilyn Monroe. Considering all their extracurriculars its no wonder there is a Kennedy curse.

  3. Hi LC,

    So Edwards is going to pay because of being probed. What else is new? I’m just surprised that revaluations of some Democrat’s sexual deviation is news. Really, haven’t we all just accepted that liberal = pervert? Come on; Michelle Obama obviously has an expensive shoe fetish (wearing $500 a pair sneakers while visiting the poor,) and her husband has a “thing” for teleprompters, so what’s the big deal with Edwards paying to be “probed?” Besides, at least he lost the election, so this “probing” wasn’t going on in the Oval Office like it was during the previous Democrat Administration.

  4. To John Edwards,

    “Thou shall not commit adultery.”
    Exodus 20:14

    “The man who commits adultery is an utter fool, for he destroys his own soul.”
    Proverbs 6:32
