FEDS Investigating John Edwards’ Use of Presidential Campaign Funds … PAC Paid More than $100,000 to Mistress Rielle Hunter … Two Americas, Two Faces



John Edwards PAC who paid more than $100,000 to his (Rielle Hunter) mistress’ company has acknowledged they they are being investigated by the Feds. According to the Charlotte Observer, federal investigators are looking into whether political donations were used to cover up an affair that Edwards had with mistress Reille Hunter. The investigation is being conducted by the office of U.S. Attorney George Holding, based in Raleigh, NC.


Edwards & Hunter:

Edwards’ political action committee has been under scrutiny for making payments to a woman with whom he had an affair. Edwards admitted the affair with Rielle Hunter in August after months of denying tabloid reports about the relationship.

“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.”

John Edwards, the former North Carolina senator and failed Presidential candidate said he was confident no money was used improperly. That should hold a lot of water as Edwards also said that they was no affair with Rielle Hunter. It’s just a coicidence that Reille Hunter received $114,000 to film Edwards as he hopscotched the nation to rally crowds in the fight against poverty. Hopscotch, footsy or hush money?

Former Democratic Presidential candidate for got to mention during his Two America’s rhetoric … there was one America that abides by the rules, works hard and tries to pay their bills and tells the truth and then there was John Edwards.

Federal investigators are trying to connect those dots, probing Edwards’ financial records to see whether he used any donations solicited for his campaign to keep quiet his affair with Rielle Hunter.

There is no truth to the rumor that the Feds are also investigating whether Edwards PAC donations are also being investigated as to whether the former NC Senator misappropriated funds to his hair care as well.

Previously, in a new memoir, Elizabeth Edwards lashed out at Rielle Hunter, the woman with whom her husband had an affair calling Hunter’s life “pathetic.”
Her book, titled “Resilience: Reflections on the Burdens and Gifts Facing Life’s Adversities,” was originally due to hit shelves May 12. But the publisher, Broadway Books, has moved up the release date to next week, because excerpts have been leaked to the press.

      I was a John Edwards supporter. Cheap SOB could not pay for his mistress out of his own pocket.
      Yes, his law license should be suspended.

      A lawyer should be held at a higher standard.
      I guess a law degree is a license to steal?

      Is this story really a “shocker” to anyone? If it weren’t so predictable or pathetic…maybe we’d all be LAUGHING OUT LOUD right
      now! Funny—but isn’t Elizabeth Edwards also rolling out her second book currently about her life’s drama with John?

      As usual, most Politicians (DEM OR REP, btw) are all about everything that is WRONG and all about the MONEY! Most are crooked and have no morals or values. Apologies for the generalization- but MOST are all the same….they are human like anyone else. This also goes for Male or Female Politicians…I am so sick of the whole bunch of them…barely a decent one in the bunch,,,,,,far and few in between!

      P.S. For the record, no one else on the planet will be surprised either when it’s finally confirmed that Edwards also fathered a Love Child with Hunter ….Are, we, (the lowly Taxpayers), still helping to pay for this babies diapers and formula now, too? Pffffffffffffff What a joke!!! As far as lawyers in this Country being held to higher standards, well…….that’s a topic for another day. Aaaargggggggh

      We all hope that Edwards finds himself
      a GOOD attorney, because he is not
      in shape to represent himself. This guy
      had the audacity to apply to us for a
      job as our President, wow!

      Pass the willingness to suspend disbelief hair tonic.

      #2 – Interesting point. If the campaign contributors are paying for this baby’s formula and diapers, wouldn’t that make that baby a ‘welfare baby’? The baby of a rich guy supported by the campaign contributor. Edwards is reason why many turn their backs on capitalism.

      Well, she had a good pick up line for Edwards…”you’re hot!” and now I would say, he’s probably about “smoking!!”

    9. BUN on May 5th, 2009 11:51 am

      I would like to correct my #8 “smoking” remark…I think he is past smokin’ and into “Toast” now!!
