Former Mistress Of John Edwards At Grand Jury Meeting

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.

    Well, I guess it has been proven now. God made man with two heads, but only enough blood to supply one at the time.

    With all the money Edwards "earned" when he was a high price lawyer, why did he have to use money from his campaign fund? He's just a typical politico.

    My disdain for Edwards is only exceeded by his snotty arrogance. He will always have problems with women because his dishonest personal character becomes clear to those who know him. He's all about John and what John wants. His consideration for others is measured only in cash. Mortie

    It almost appears that you need to have a mistess or mister to have a public office.
