John Edwards has been indicted for actions related to his attempt to cover up a love child.
Consider this. If Edwards had won the election would he now be being indicted? If he won would people who claimed that Edwards had a secret love child be called “babyers?” Would they be dismissed as tin-foil hat wearing conspiracy kooks? Would the press look the other way instead of following up on leads and hostilely dismiss legitimate curiosity about the circumstances surrounding his relationship with Hunter?
How did we find out about the Edwards’ love child? The press did this novel thing and investigated suspicious circumstances, although much to the shame of the mainstream press, it was the National Enquirer that broke the story.
