Edwards Aide Says Speaking Fees Not Going Up

A former aide to John Edwards say the one-time Democratic presidential candidate isn't raising his speaking fees.

Jonathan Prince said Saturday that Edwards' upcoming speeches carry similar fees to those he's charged in the past. Edwards is set to speak at Hofstra University in New York on September 8th. It will be his first speech since admitting an extramarital affair in August.

Edwards also is to speak on October 14th at the University of Illinois in Urbana, where a student group is paying the former senator's fee.

Prince says Edwards will donate his Hofstra speaking fee to charity.

    ......That is what I thought, you can't justify it so you just ignore it. Liberals!

    I am not defending Edwards, he makes my stomach roll, but why is he such a scum bag in everyone's eyes, but Bill Clinton still gets an appearance at the convention? How much money has he made speaking? What is the difference? I cannot wait to read someone's justification for this. There is none, but I am sure someone will make some feeble attempt.

    He would have to pay me to listen to him.

    This pertains to the Christians: Let he who is without sin cast the first stone. Any takers? I'm not trying to be critical, but let's practice what we preach, people.

    he should speak for free and talk about family values. OH that's right he has none.

    John Edwards should be ashamed to show his face in public. Any group that hires him to speak is showing their ignorance and left-leaning tendencies. Edwards needs to crawl back under the rock from which he slithered. He won't, though, because Democrats and liberals honor his type of behavior(unless it's a Republican exhibiting the same acts).

    Why doesn't Edwards just crawl back under his rock. He's made millions chasing ambulances and with some wise investments should have enough money to live on for the rest of his life.
