All copies of John Edwards sex tape to be destroyed

All known copies of a sexually explicit videotape featuring former Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards and his mistress Rielle Hunter will be destroyed, according to ABC News. Hunter had fought a two-year long court battle with former Edwards’ aide Andrew Young and his wife Cheri for allegedly stealing her “personal…

John Edwards trial delayed by ‘serious heart condition’

The trial of former presidential candidate John Edwards for alleged campaign violations was delayed this week after his doctor told a judge that Edwards has a serious heart condition which will require a medical procedure next month. According to the Associated Press, “Federal Judge Catherine Eagles did not disclose the…

Campaign finance experts may be allowed to back John Edwards’ case at trial

GREENSBORO, North Carolina (Reuters) – A federal judge on Friday left the door open for former Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards to call two campaign finance experts to testify at his trial next month on charges of using illegal campaign funds to hide an extramarital affair.

On economic populism and rookie sexist mistakes

How appropriate.  At the Guardian's CIF, I put up a piece about what it means to lose John Edwards as a figurehead of populist liberalism in the wake of his scandals.  I don't write much at all about Edwards, because invariably it means people project a lot of their more…

Allegedly, this is the proof Mickey Kaus has been waiting for. Having also put a sweat ring on a light-blue t-shirt in the past month, I have a confession to make. I am the father of Rielle Hunter’s love child. The other one. That John Edwards also isn’t the father…

I’m Pretty Sure John Edwards Doesn’t Have A Love Child

Mickey Kaus has bought into the story hook, line and sinker, which likely means that John Edwards has been sterile for the past three years. Unfortunately for his friends of the genus Capra, Mickey is as virile and unabashedly goat-loving as ever.…

Touch Me In A Fistular Way

CNN: Obama doesn’t give a kid a fist bump. He’s also heard to mutter part of a sentence. This is news. Obama must answer for his lack of commitment to bringing every single American to his fist. I also want John Edwards to answer for that time he was campaigning…
