John Edwards Indicted

Noted phony and 2004 Democratic Vice Presidential nominee John Edwards has had a difficult time since leaving politics in 2008. He came in third in the 2008 primaries, it became apparent that he had fathered a child while cheating on his cancer-stricken wife (who then died) and now may be going to jail.

He spent almost $1 million to cover up his affair and love child.

The grand jury's indictment in the case of USA v. Johnny Reid Edwards contained six counts, including conspiracy, four counts of receiving illegal campaign contributions and one count of false statements.

The indictment said the payments were a scheme to protect Edwards' White House ambitions. "A centerpiece of Edwards' candidacy was his public image as a devoted family man," the indictment said.

"Edwards knew that public revelation of the affair and the pregnancy would destroy his candidacy by, among other things, undermining Edwards' presentation of himself as a family man and by forcing his campaign to divert personnel and resources away from other campaign activities to respond to criticism and media scrutiny regarding the affair and pregnancy," the indictment added.

Send him away!
