Feds are looking at Edwards' campaign
Investigators dig through records to see if donors' money was used to cover up affair with campaign worker.

[And all this time I thought his donors' money was used to buy stuff like a Playstation3 on the sly from Walmart.]
RALEIGH Federal investigators are sifting through the records of money that helped John Edwards' presidential campaign to determine if any was used to keep quiet his affair with Rielle Hunter.
[For a long time, the MSM was performing this task for him gratis.]
Edwards, a Democrat and former U.S. senator, acknowledged the investigation to The News & Observer.
“I am confident that no funds from my campaign were used improperly,” Edwards said in a 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. We appreciate the diligence and professionalism of those involved and look forward to a conclusion.”
[What's amazing here is that Edwards has millions of bucks. Just look at his vast North Carolina estate. The payoffs were only $15,000 per month but he was apparently too cheap to pay out of pocket and, as a result, now faces this investigation. Now on to the DUmmie reaction...]
What a fall...I really like Edwards. I was always riveted by his speeches. I had such high hopes for him. Turns out, he's just as average as the rest of us.
[Just as slimy as the average DUmmie. p.s. Thank you, Head DUmmie Skinner for restoring the old DUmmieland format. Now I don't have to copy the first sentence and the body of the DUmmie posts separately. Your cooperation in this matter is greatly appreciated since it definitely facilitates my DUFU producing ability.]
Nothing like an affair to spur the Feds on . . . while corrupt capitalism destroys America--!!!
[Oh, yeah. We all remember how Edwards made big bucks from a hedge fund...but ONLY in order to study poverty in America.]
I suppose it is because I am an old crank that the Feds are digging around in Edwards' files to see if his girlfriend got money, that makes me see red. They could use their time better by digging around in TORTURE files. Edwards has been punished by the whole country as well as his wife and he will continue to be punished. Enough is enough! He left the stage a long time ago.
[TORTURE files full of info about prisoners being overfed orange glaze chicken and rice pilaf. Oh, and that air conditioning set to freezing levels of 69 degrees rather than allow the prisoners to merely swelter in the tropical Gitmo heat.]
Holder should purge the DoJ of EVERY Repuke appointee tomorrow any of them who didn't get fired are corrupt partisans who have no business getting tax money to practice their version of the law. Then as soon as their replacements are in office, all of the Repukes should be investigated and imprisoned - in real prison.
[Being a Republican is a Thought Crime. Case closed. No trials needed.]
I hope Edwards simply used his own money, but funneled it through his friends so Elizabeth wouldn't see it.
[So you're saying that you hope that Edwards is merely a liar, not a crook and a liar.]
I agree that Edwards could have justified the haircut, but that is not what he chose. He chose to say that he had intended to pay it out of his own money, but there was an error on the part of the person who made the payment from his campaign fund when the barber's bill showed up there. Do I believe that? No. I think he or someone speaking for him told the barber to bill his campaign.
[And bill the campaign for that cucumber cream facial.]
This is a simple case of political corruption, caused by John Edwards. No relationship to the other matter.
[Remember that he was once the hero of most DUmmies and given their seal of approval.]
ever since I saw his interview on Nightline about the affair, I have no more trust for Edwards
[But until that moment you suffered gullibility in the extreme.]
I thought so long before that. This guy is a snake-oil salesman. I have no idea how many posts I had deleted on here for saying that the guy was a lying, two-faced, charlatan who shouldn't be trusted. Oh well. Being right doesn't pay the bills. Poor schmucks who donated to his campaign are out of luck though - no money will be going back to them.
[How about the poor DUmmie schmucks who donated to lying, two-faced charlatan BBV Bev Harris?]
I know the nature of the political process, so I should not be surprised, but I am sadend. I sincerely hope that President Obama, a product of the same system, is indeed something Different. However, I don't expect anything New until we have Campaign Finance Reform and Paper Ballots counted in public.
[President Obama, product of the Chicago political machine, corrupt? Naw! Impossible!]
I'm more and more convinced that his populism was a cynical BSing act. Smooth-talker with self-control issues..
[Are you actually casting aspersions upon his claim that he made big bucks from a hedge fund in order to investigate poverty in America?]
He always came off sleezy.
[Posting that a year ago in DUmmieland would have meant a tombstoning ceremony for you.]
I thought Edwards was honest and captivating when he spoke of the two Americas. And he may well still be truthful about that. Men tend to lie about their peccadillos, while remaining honest in other aspects of their lives and profession.
[DUmmie Indiana Green: I BEEEEEEEEELEEEEEEVE!!!]
I can't believe the suckers around here. couldn 't believe it before the news of the affair came out, can't believe it even more now.
[Is that you, Bev Harris?]
When the word came out about this affair I felt so sad for Elizabeth. She has a terminal form of cancer, she's lost her son, and now her husband, the man who swore to love her no matter what fathered a child with some twit because the girl said he was HOT? Come on now.
[I'm too sexy for my face! Too sexy for my face!]
I never could stand johny hedge fund. I knew he was a corporatist phony long before his stupid little affair. He was a war cheering asshole. he went to work for a very sleazy hedge fund and invested big bucks in it. hey, he made money off of NO victims and rank mortgages. and why should he be above the law? I can't believe there are still people here so blind and f*cking stupid that they still believe he ever gave a shit about anyone but himself.
[You mean his hedge fund shtick wasn't for investigating poverty?]
I hated that JE was a coporatist creep who lied his ass off and used poverty issues for his own gain. people who care about poverty do not vote for shitty bankruptcy bills and they sure as f*ck don't go to work for big bucks for hedge funds and lie about it.
[Your reservation aboard Edwards' bus during his next poverty tour has just been canceled.]
John Edwards' "Two Americas" populist rhetoric was all an act.
[GASP! Next you will be telling me there is no Santa Claus!]
I can't believe how dumb I was for trusting this man. I voted for him in the primary. Is he a psychopath, like Bernard Madoff, do you think?
[Hey, John Kerry can vouch for him.]
John Edwards even had the look in his eyes at certain times that screamed "evil!" at me. I have no doubt he has had serious psychiatric issues for years. I know, diagnosis from afar is pointless, but speculation? I can do that with the best of them!
[That look in his eyes sure had you hypnotized with awe not so long ago.]
i, too, voted to him in the primaries. i think that he would have made a good president . . . without this character flaw, of course.
[Just one teenie weenie flaw.]
Democrats get investigated, Republicans walk. Same as it ever was.
[Yeah, Republicans walk but only after they conveniently lose their elections. Just ask Ted Stevens.]
I weep. What a disappointment.
[John Edwards has another bridge to sell you.]
