Eff this guy:

Former presidential hopeful John Edwards pleaded not guilty Friday to federal charges that he solicited and secretly spent more than $925,000 to hide his mistress and their baby from the public at the height of his 2008 White House campaign. In a 30-second statement to dozens of reporters and television news cameras that surrounded him outside the courthouse, he said he never thought he was breaking the law.

“There is no question that I have done wrong,” he said. “And I take full responsibility for having done wrong. And I will regret for the rest of my life the pain and the harm that I have caused to others. But I did not break the law.” Edwards did not have to post bond, but he had to surrender his passport and is not allowed to leave the continental U.S. He also can’t have contact with one of the wealthy benefactors who gave him money that prosecutors say was used to hide the affair. The indictment contained six felony counts, including conspiracy, four counts of receiving illegal campaign contributions and one count of false statements for keeping the spending off the campaign’s public finance reports.

It said the payments made with money from two wealthy supporters were a scheme to protect Edwards’ presidential ambitions. “A centerpiece of Edwards’ candidacy was his public image as a devoted family man,” the indictment said. “Edwards knew that public revelation of the affair and the pregnancy would destroy his candidacy. Prosecutors said the spending was illegal because the 2004 Democratic vice presidential nominee should have reported it on public campaign finance filings and because it exceeded the $2,300 limit per person for campaign contributions. Edwards’ lawyer, Gregory Craig, said there’s no way that anyone, including Edwards, would have known that the payments should be treated as campaign contributions.

    True, he screwed over his wife and kids, but he didn’t break the law. This is just a distraction and waste of money. They need to bring charges against Bush and Cheney for war crimes.

    KARMA. I don’t know why people think you can just treat each other any kind of way with no consequences and repercussions. SMH

    saw this on the news and was thinking that mofo is going to hell with gasoline draws on.

  • 2012NOW

    And ya’all voted for him – for one reason – he had a D next to his name.
    Pathetic.

  • wow

    Nobody didn’t vote for him because he had a D by his name they voted for him because he was not from Hawaii. How Pathetic. Get it right. His mistress is very unattractive.

    It’s probably his deceased wife punishing him from her grave for all the wrong he’s caused, he deserves to be punished , cheating on your wife while shes battling cancer.

  • STAR

    PLEASE, DON’T BELIEVE THE HYPE. LIKE I SAID BEFORE, HIS WIFE BELITTLED HIM BECAUSE SHE CAME FROM A FAMILY WITH MONEY – THERE IS A LOT MORE TO THIS STORY THAN THE PRESS IS TELLING. HIS WIFE WAS NO SAINT LIKE THEY ARE MAKING HER OUT TO BE. HE REALLY SHOULD HAVE LEFT A LONG TIME AGO BUT COULD NOT BECAUSE OF HIS CAREER. JOHN EDWARDS IS NOT A BAD PERSON, AND THEY ARE JUST NOT TELLING ALL THE TRUTH. REMEMBER THERE ARE ALWAYS TOO SIDES TO EVERY STORY. THAT’S JACKED THAT THIS FEMALE IS HANGING HIM OUT TO TRY. THIS TRAMP KNEW HE WAS MARRIED AND NOW SHE HAS ABANDONED HIM AND BASICALLY RUINED HIM POLITICALLY. DAMN SHAME.

    Elizabeth is haunting his no good azz from her grave. It’s just begun bro.

  • eliteliberal

    I bet if he knew it would cost him all this he would have picked a jump-off that was young and cute. Reille was not it…he did not get what he paid for…some stale dried up pu pu. He shoulda just rolled with Liz until her time was up.

  • Alarmed

    I hope he, that baby and that woman dies. Forgive me God, but that’s how I feel.
