    Well, after all, it was going to be a "chip shot" getting 50 more mil from Bunny. Isn't that a John boy saying? He smelled it, he was after it at any cost.

    This guy is the original slim ball. He should get life for just being who he is. It is hard to believe, but he can give lawyers a worse name. A new low

    No verdict still.....today being Tuesday.....so there is NO SLAM DUNK for sure....from what the media has reported there is NO EVIDENCE, CLEAR EVIDENCE that Edwards committed any crime.....I would have to wonder why/how Edwards got indicted on several counts without any EVIDENCE.....had this been in front of the NC Grand Jury....I would completely understand....but since this is a Federal case.....the people in Washington who made the decision of handing down the indictments.....well...this pretty much speaks for what the country is doing.....leaping without looking....no doubt....

    Verdict Watch....as the country waits to *hear the verdict*....it is interesting that what has supposedly was presented does NOT point to any crime being committed....now...IF the families of the 2 people who provided the dollars to Edwards indicating that they were *tricked or threaten or pressured* into turning the money over to Edwards....then this might be quite a different story....it seems like attorneys and prosecutors and those who try to enforce the laws....can play games with people's lives...and interpret the laws however they see *fit to do so*....one has to wonder exactly *WHAT IS THE EVIDENCE?*.....I do not think anyone knows yet....and the trial is done except for the verdict....OMG....does this tell anyone anything?
