FEDS Investigating John Edwards’ Use of Presidential Campaign Funds … PAC Paid More than $100,000 to Mistress Rielle Hunter … Two Americas, Two Faces
TWO AMERICAS, BOTH SEEM TO BE AGAINST JOHN EDWARDS
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.
