Edwards Jury Selection Continues

Choosing a jury of his peers is proving to be a difficult task in the John Edwards trial.

A federal judge in Greensboro dismissed another 47 potential jurors Monday, many because they said they couldn't fairly weigh evidence involving the former Democratic Presidential Candidate.

Edwards has pleaded not guilty to six criminal counts related to nearly $1-million in secret payments from two wealthy campaign donors that was used to hide his pregnant mistress as he sought the White House in 2008.

Opening arguments are scheduled to begin next Monday. Officials said about 50 of the remaining people from the jury pool will be recalled Tuesday so they can be asked questions based on their earlier written answers.
