John Edwards Not Guilty on 1 Count, Mistrial on 5 Other Counts … But Guilty of Being a Lying, Cheating Dirtbag

Once again a jury just can’t seem to get a verdict correct … because who does not think that politicians act unethically? Crime? No, it’s business as usual.

A North Carolina jury that deliberated 9 days in the John Edwards campaign finance corruption case has finally reached a verdict, not guilty on one count and a mistrial on five other counts. This would seem to bring this matter to an end as it would appear unlikely that the prosecutions wants to have another trial on the 5 counts that the jury was deadlocked with.

A North Carolina jury found former Sen. John Edwards not guilty today on one of six counts in a campaign-finance trial, and declared itself hopelessly deadlocked on the remaining charges, leading the judge to declare a mistrial on those counts.

Edwards said he did not believe he did anything “illegal” but acknowledged the affair he conducted while his wife, Elizabeth, was dying of cancer was “awful” and “wrong.”

“No one else is responsible for my sins,” he said. “I am responsible.

“If I want to find the person responsible for my sins, I don’t have to go further than a mirror,” he added. “It was me and me alone.”

John Edwards said in a statement following the verdict, that he wanted to thank the jury and that they took their job very seriously and were diligent in their duties. Too bad one could not say the same for the shamed former Senator, Democrat Presidential candidate and VP candidate.

Edwards stated in a post trial press conference that “God was not through with him”. That may be the case Mr. Edwards, but the American people are. Make no mistake about it, your political career is over, finished, kaput. After you were acquitted from the crimes, no one really wanted to hear your smarmy voice or excuses. You lied to the America people, but more importantly, you lied to your wife who was dying of cancer and cheated on her with another woman and had a baby. A baby that you refused to admit was yours.

No matter what the outcome of the verdict, the gig is up and everyone knows what and who you are. People have a strange way of not forgiving those who cheat on their dying wives. Especially one’s who do not seem to learn anything from their short comings.

John Edwards, What a Guy … Edwards Hits on 25 Year Old Andrea Love Months After His Wife, Elizabeth, Died of Cancer

Smarm-Dog …

Does anything really surprise us any more when it comes to John Edwards? As reported at the NY Post, former US Senator (NC-D) and Presidential candidate thought ‘Love’ was in the air as he hit on a 25 year old coed at a North Carolina bar just outside of Chapel Hill just months after his wife Elizabeth Edwards died of cancer. Sorry, but in a he said, she said story … Edwards has zero credibility these days. The Blaze seems to question the story that even Edwards has standards. Really? A man cheats on his dying wife … he has none.

Hey baby, your habeas corpus or mine

Horndog hubby John Edwards shamelessly hit on comely co-eds just months after his wife, Elizabeth, died of cancer.

Edwards, 58, who is on trial on charges of campaign-finance violations, flexed his trial-lawyer charm on pretty Andrea Love, 25, at the dive Bowbarr just outside of Chapel Hill, NC, last spring.

“He was all over her,’’ said a source at the bar.

Edwards’ long-suffering wife had just died in December 2010 — and he was reportedly still involved with his mistress, Rielle Hunter, with whom he had fathered a love child.

“I met him by the bar,” Love told The Post of her encounter with the sleazy, former presidential candidate. “I was kind of amused by the situation. He seemed like a charming guy.”

My guess is that he will deny this ever occurred just like he did with the love child that Edwards had with mistress Rielle Hunter. We all know how that turned out when the worst kept secret was finally admitted to by John Edwards.

John Edwards Campaign Finance Case: Female Alternate Juror Flirts With The Breck Girl, John Edwards

This heel was that close to being President … John Edwards trying to out Clinton, Bill Clinton. John Edwards, facing as much as 30 years in prison and fined as much as $1.5 million, uses the court room as a pick up joint. The term “smarmy” comes to mind.

Alternate worlds: What is wrong with some woman? Note to female jurors, I think you can find a better catch than a man who would cheat on his wife and have a baby out of wedlock with his mistress as his wife Elizabeth Edwards was dying of cancer. Add to the mix, John Edwards has obviously learned much from his days of getting caught cheating on his wife.

As Memorial Day weekend is upon us, the jurors deliberating in the John Edwards campaign finance case where Edwards is accused of using nearly $1 million in campaign donations to hide his affair with his mistress Rielle Hunter, have been sent home. However, not without some controversy. The judge cleared the court room to discuss what was described as a juror issue. I would appear that a female alternate juror has been flirting with Edwards. Making matters even more sleazy, Edwards has reciprocated the flirtation.  It is rather amazing, no make that disgusting, that a man who could not keep it in his pants and is facing felony charges because of it still is such a schmuck that he would think flirting with a juror at his own trial is acceptable behavior.

Since the alternates were identified last Thursday, it has been impossible to ignore the dynamic between Edwards and one of the female alternates, an attractive young woman with jet-black hair, who seems to have been flirting with Edwards for days.

The juror clearly instigated the exchanges. She smiles at him.   He smiles  politely back at her. She giggles.  He blushes.

Good grief, what is the issue … send the idiot home for good as this is hardly conduct that should be allowed by an impartial jurist.

My How the Mighty Have Fallen: John Edwards … Former NC Senator, Democrat Prez Wanna-be & Spousal Cheater Goes from $500 to $12.95 Haircuts

John Edwards … Does he still feel pretty?

My what a difference that an extramarital affair with a former campaign worker, six felony indictment charges and a ruined political career will do to a man’s haircuts. As reported at the NY Post, the Breck Girl John Edwards, has gone from $500 haircuts in Beverly Hills to Supercuts at $12.95. Think that Edward’s legal fees have not cut into his ability to “feel pretty”?

Edwards, who in his political heydey went to stylist Joseph Torrenueva, whose Beverly Hills salon charges $300 to $500 per cut, now goes to Supercuts in Raleigh, NC, for a $12.95 job, employees say.

“We just talked about his hair,” said a hairdresser named Leah, who recognized Edwards from a photo.

After evaluating the two pics above and the associated costs for each haircut, the question that remains is who thinks that the $12.95 Super Cuts hair cut looks better? BTW, a note to John Edwards, hair cuts are free in prison. If found guilty of the 6 felony indictment, Edwards could face 30 years for violating campaign-finance laws.

Does John Edwards still feel pretty?

Federal Judge Delays John Edwards’ Campaign Finance Violation Trial Due to Heart Condition

Life threatening condition delays trial … ironically Elizabeth’s life threatening cancer did not stop John Edwards’ from having an affair with Reille Hunter.

A federal judge in North Carolina has delayed the John Edwards’ alleged campaign finance violation trial due to Edwards suffering from an alleged heart condition. The Edwards trial was supposed to begin on January 30, 2012; however, that was before two cardiologists claims that they had scheduled a medical procedure for Edwards in February and that a trial would “reduce the chance for success.” The criminal trial has been delayed until at least March 26.

A federal judge on Friday delayed John Edwards’ trial on alleged campaign finance violations for at least two months because the two-time Democratic presidential candidate is suffering from a heart condition.

The trial had been set to begin Jan. 30, but U.S. District Judge Catherine Eagles said the earliest it could begin is March 26. No new trail date has been set.

Eagles said in court that she has received letters from two cardiologists, stating that they have scheduled a medical procedure for Edwards in February and that a trial would “reduce the chance for success.”

Edwards’ defense attorneys stated that their client was on meds for his heart condition and that they have had difficulty meeting with Edwards in recent weeks to prepare for trial because of his health. Of course Edwards’ medical records detailing his condition are under court seal.Think the pressure of the reality of what Edwards has done is finally getting to him? Looks that way.

A heart condition, eh? Who knew that John Edwards even had a heart after he lied and cheated on his ex-wife who had cancer? How ironic that John Edwards would have a life threatening heart condition. He seemed to care little when his ex-wife had a similar life threatening condition. Oh that’s right, Edwards justified his affair stating that his wife’s cancer was in remission at the time. Sadly, Elizabeth Edwards has passed away from her courageous battle with cancer.

So is there really a medical condition that is life threatening or is this a stall for more time? I guess we will soon see as to what happens in the not too distant future as to what type of medical procedure is performed on Edwards.

John Edwards Mug Shot Released after Federal Indictment … I Feel Pretty

John Edwards, the former Democrat North Carolina Senator and Presidential candidate had his mug shot released following his being charged with six federal indictments. Was that a mug shot or a glamor shot? Edwards pleaded not guilty to the charges; however, does he still feel pretty?

Former U.S. Senator John Edwards, pleaded not guilty to conspiracy and campaign law violations in early June. His mug shot was obtained by CNN following a Freedom of Information Act request.

The plea came after a federal grand jury indicted him on six counts, including conspiracy, issuing false statements and violating campaign contribution laws.

National Enquirer States Elizabeth Edwards Could Haunt John Edwards From the Grave … She Made a VIDEO about John’s Affairs

According the the National Enquirer, Elizabeth Edwards could haunt ex-hubby John Edwards from the grave.

This might be the greatest ‘hell have no fury like a woman scorned’ ever. Could this be the ultimate act of revenge, the Daily Caller seems to think so. As per the tabloid, the dearly departed Elizabeth Edwards recorded a bombshell secret videotape for prosecutors that nails her cheating, dirt bag husband John Edwards. If true, it could not happen to a better person.

That’s the stunning secret behind the federal indictment brought against the disgraced former presidential candi­date on June 3 – following a two-year grand jury investigation into whether he illegally used campaign funds to cover up his affair with his then-pregnant mistress Rielle Hunter.

“Elizabeth wanted to exact revenge against John for destroy­ing their 33-year marriage and family by cheating with Rielle,” source close to the scandal told ENQUIRER.

“It was Elizabeth’s idea to secret­ly record a video and tell what knew of the affair and John’s horrific betrayal.”

Before any one questions the National Enquirer n this story, it was the tabloid that broke the John Edwards “baby daddy” affair with Reille Hunter and has been on this story and correct all along.

Two Time Presidental Democrat Candidate John Edwards Indicted on 6 Felony Charges of Campaign Finance Law

TWO AMERICAS … SIX FEDERAL INDICTMENTS!

John Edwards indicted on six felony charges that he broke federal campaign finance law. Make no mistake about it, much to what Democrat pundits will say, this case is not about sex, its about braking federal campaign finance law. Ask yourself this question, why would a Democrats President’s AG move on this case against a fellow Dem if there was not a case? This is hardly a political witch hunt … they are all Democrats.

How will the Breck Girl get treated in Jail, will he have a personal prison hair stylists?

58 year old John Edwards was indicted today by a grand jury in Raleigh, NC, for allegedly using more than $900,000 in campaign funds to hide his mistress during the 2008 Democratic presidential race.

RUT-ROH, DOJ Green-Lights Campaign Violation Indictments Against Former NC Democrat Senator & Presidential Candidate John Edwards

From Love Child to Indictment … John Edwards is about to find out what it means to live in that other America he used to refer to.

It just got worse for disgraced former US Senator John Edwards (D-NC) and Presidential candidate finds himself in a world of hurt today. Edwards thought that his “baby daddy” affair was a headache, now he is facing potential indictments …

ABC News is reported that the United States Department of Justice green-lighted the prosecution of John Edwards for alleged violations of campaign laws. All this occurred as John Edwards was trying  to cover up an extra-marital affair with Rielle Hunter.  Oh what a tangled web Edwards’ weaves, when he practices to deceive.

The United States Department of Justice has green-lighted the prosecution of former presidential candidate John Edwards for alleged violations of campaign laws while he tried to cover up an extra-marital affair, ABC News has learned.

A source close to the case said Edwards is aware that the government intends to seek an indictment and that the former senator from North Carolina is now considering his limited options. He could accept a plea bargain with prosecutors or face a potentially costly trial.

As stated by Hot Air, it looks like Edwards is about to face Two America’s … “the one inside a courtroom, and the one outside of it”. The Gateway Pundit reminds us that the National Enquirer sometimes nails the story 100%.
