The former mistress of John Edwards has arrived at a federal courthouse in Raleigh where a grand jury is meeting -- an appearance that comes as federal investigators examine the two-time presidential candidate's finances.
Rielle Hunter walked into the building Thursday morning, escorted by what appeared to be federal agents. Edwards said last year that he and Hunter had an affair in 2006 while he plotted his second bid for the White House. The former North Carolina senator's political action committee paid Hunter's video production firm $100,000 for work that year.
Edwards has acknowledged a federal investigation into how he handled campaign funds.
Andrew Young, the former Edwards aide who claimed to be the father of Hunter's child, made a similar appearance while the grand jury was sitting last month.
