Federal prosecutors drop case against John Edwards

John Edwards

John Edwards

A jury in North Carolina acquitted the former presidential candidate last month on one count of accepting illegal campaign contributions. It deadlocked on five other felony counts, resulting in a mistrial on those charges.

A statement issued by the U.S. Justice Department on Wednesday said prosecutors will not seek to retry Edwards on the five unresolved counts.

Edwards was accused of masterminding a scheme to use about $1 million in secret payments from two wealthy political donors to hide his pregnant mistress as he sought the White House in 2008

That slimeball is already ruined over the scandal. I'm so glad his presidential campaign disintegrated. He was the only one who could have done more damage than Obama.

The Feds need all their attorneys heading down to sue the State of Florida in order to preserve the illegal votes that Obama got in 2008 and needs again this November.
