Breaking: DOJ Green Lights Prosecution of John Edwards for Campaign Finance Violations Related to Affair Cover Up

Maybe Fred Baron wasn't the bestest friend ever after all. But he can hardly be blamed, cause he's dead.

John Edwards on the other hand..

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 with Clinton, liberals will spin desperately to make this all about sex (well, those liberals who give a rat's ass about John Edwards, which means media punditheads and a few wavy hair fans). It ain't that at all. It's whether campaign hush money was paid to Young and Hunter to shush em up while Edwards made his run at the Presidency.

One is most assuredly not a crime. The other thing, maybe so.
