Bob Barr Criticizes Indictment of John Edwards

Published on June 9, 2011, by in General.

Former Congressman Bob Barr, the Libertarian Party presidential nominee in 2008, has this June 8 column on the recent indictment of John Edwards, the Democratic Party’s vice-presidential nominee in 2004. Edwards was indicted for supposedly breaking the federal campaign finance laws. One of his best friends and supporters gave him a great deal of money, which he used to support Rielle Hunter, his mistress. Federal prosecutors say the gift to Edwards was an illegal campaign contribution.

    I must admit I think Edwards is a scumbag but Barr makes a lot of sense in his article. I guess it comes down to emotion versus law and the unintended (or perhaps intended) consequences the settlement of this case may have.

    He is correct. Just another example of how laws are abused by government and how worthless they really are.

    I THINK EDWARDS IS A NO GOOD CREEP. I COULD NEVER DEFEND HIM

    It sounds to me like John Edwards defrauded the people who donated to his campaign.
