U.S. prosecutors expect to indict John Edwards

Former presidential candidate facing allegations he violated campaign finance laws

Federal prosecutors in the U.S. expect to indict former Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards in the coming days, according to a report by the Associated Press. Investigators have been on Edwards’ trail for the better part of two years, probing almost his entire political career in connection with allegations that he violated campaign financing laws. At the heart of their investigation is money that went to keep Edwards’s mistress out of the public eye while he campaigned for the presidency.
