Edwards arrives at NC court to face felony charges 
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. A grand jury charged two-time presidential candidate John Edwards on Friday with soliciting and secretly spending more than $925,000 to hide his mistress and their baby from the public at the height of his 2008 White House campaign.

The indictment contained six felony counts, including conspiracy, four counts of receiving illegal campaign contributions and one count of false statements for keeping the spending off the campaign's public finance reports.

Coming up next on Political Crimes and Punishment: 

Congressman Anthony Wiener and his photo shoot.

Let the jokes fly, but Wiener is the of guy who you can easily get a rise out of, and when you do, you find out he takes a hard stance when he stands up for the American people.

He's supposed to speak at a news conference for Fox right now as we speak, but so far Wiener hasn't popped out yet......

C'mon guys, with a last name like that, you know the jokes were gonna' start flying.. :bouncegiggle: :tongueout: :bouncegiggle:
