John Edwards,  Rielle Hunter

Video: John Edwards Indicted and Arrest Warrant Issued

If you think politics and politicians are bad, it only get worse with the John Edward’s story. Watch the video above for a complete and sordid timeline of the John Edward’s affair with Rielle Hunter.

A federal grand jury indicted former North Carolina senator and presidential candidate John Edwards Friday.

Sources tell ABC11 that Edwards will make his first court appearance at 1:30 p.m. in Winston-Salem.

The case of United States of America v. Johnny Reid Edwards contains six counts, including conspiracy, four counts of illegal campaign contributions and one count of false statements. A warrant for his arrest has been issued.

The federal indictment can be found here.

The indictment says he “did knowingly and willfully combine, conspire, confederate, and agree with others” to “accept and receive, while a candidate for federal office, contributions” “in excess of the limits of the Elections Act.”

The indictment says Edwards’ actions caused his campaign to file false campaign finance reports. It goes on to say the purpose of the conspiracy was to cover up the former senator’s affair with Rielle Hunter.

I covered this story many years ago and it was very obvious that Edwards was lying and covering up his affair with Rielle Hunter in order to save his political hide. He will have to plead guilty to a federal felony in order to avoid federal prison and be disbarred.

Wonder if Ms. Hunter will want him now?
