John Edwards is an awful human being who cheated on his cancer stricken wife, impregnating his mistress and lying to the people of the United States. He used one million dollars of his political contributors' money to hide the affair and love-child... and somehow was found innocent of using his political contributors' money to hide the affair and love-child.
The jury's actions before the trial was even decided showed that they were not even paying attention to what was unfolding in front of their eyes. One alternate juror was flirting with Edwards, while others were calling one another in order to make certain that their clothes were the same. Members of the main jury were reportedly talking about the case when they were not supposed to, resulting in the judge reprimanding them. Thus, it should come at no surprise that Edwards was found not guilty.
Out of this miscarriage of justice, as expected, the Left is riding their high horse in order to shield a terrible person and slam conservatives. It would almost be shocking if it wasn't so disgusting.
This person, who commented on the New York Times' respective article, believes it was all a conspiracy concocted by evil Republicans to bilk the honorable Edwards (note the 16 thumbs up):
it's the Republicans who are dirty, not the adulterer:
nonsensical ramblings about the Koch brothers:
What about Buuuuuush?!
why don't we prosecute Laura Bush... for some reason:
Edwards is just a straight-up good guy:
