Breaking News Senator Edwards

United States
August 9, 2008 12:00am CST
Senator Edwards had an illicit affair with another woman in 2006. He has laundered public funds to her to support the child he fathered with her. From this news it looks like the end of Edwards political career. Its also a jot for Obama since he Edwards was one of the cosidered vice president candidates.

Just watched the nightline interview with John Edwards. he is so slick--he is using a new tactic-not having his wife stand by his side- saying he alone is responsible- which is absolutely true- He kept commenting to Bob Woodruff -you know all of these allegations come from theses cheap tabloids that constantly lie! Well bob Woodruff should have said that's calling the Kettle black!--Laura Ingram used to call him Little pony with his obsession with his hair. He said he didn't pay the woman off and didn't know who did- so of course one of his workers takes the rap --Wasn't it public campaign funds--all crooked slimeballs!

I always thought Edwards was the playboy type ever since I first saw him n television when he first became senator. But he use to always talk about being a family man and that his family was the most important to him but this goes against everything he use to say. On top of that he did it knowing full and well how sick his wife is. That is as low as you can get. I wonder if he will be facing criminal charges for using public funds to support his love child.

This isn't exactly breaking news as it has been on every site, newspaper, tabloid, and radio and television news show all day. In fact the one tabloid put out this story months ago, when he denied it, then again and he denied it, and a third time just the other day and finally he came clean. They are also saying he fathered a kid with this lady but that he is still denying. We will have to wait to find out about that one.

Money luandering public funds to support that child. That not many can do. You will easily get caught since you are in a government office.

I'm going to use the same response in this I have for the other threads on the topic because it's just easier: Heres my thoughts on the issue. I am going to defend (sort of) Edwards. Or rather, he and his family. He is not running for president anymore. He is not a sitting senetor. I don't even think he is a practicing lawyer these days. He is a private citizen like the rest of us. What he did was wrong on so many levels, but he did it to his family. We've been tolds, now the press should just leave it alone. The family is dealing with enough as it is. for them to continualy harp on it is only demonstrating a sensationalist blood thirsty crusaide.

But there is still no escape for him for possible jail time or fines for using public funds to support that child. Using public funds for that purpose is illegal.

I guess that we the public will have to wait until everything comes out and hear all the facts but, if the reports are correct, maybe Senator Edwards can be John McCain's VP.
