John Edwards: Purse-Snatching Bandit?

by at . Comments

We know John Edwards has no morals, but never took him for a petty thief.

While this latest piece of news is nowhere near as scandalous as the John Edwards sex tape, it is but another strange piece of the fallen politician's bizarre saga.

The Orange County, N.C., sheriff's office just released last week a copy of a report alleging a "domestic between spouses and larceny of wallet" in October 2008.

The location of the alleged theft? The home of John and Elizabeth Edwards.

In the report, Elizabeth describes how John came home to eat dinner with his children after a sports event. Elizabeth told him he had no business being there.

Moments later, John Edwards challenged his wife and said the house was his, too. Then Elizabeth Edwards said she saw her husband take her wallet and leave.

The train wreck that is John Edwards seems to worsen daily.

Elizabeth said her wallet contained $320, credit cards and a phone. John went down to "the barn," an adjoining structure that includes a full-size basketball court, for several minutes before beginning to leave, according to officials.

"As Mr. Edwards was preparing to leave, he was asked to give the wallet back,” the official police report notes, “and he advised that he did not have it."

The report ends by giving Edwards – a former U.S. Senator, two-time presidential candidate and Democratic V.P. nominee – a new title: "suspect."

The report had been kept confidential at Elizabeth's request, as the documents’ release "could endanger the victims physical or mental well-being."

So ... John Edwards was not allowed in his own home, and rebelled after being kicked out by ganking his own wife's wallet? Eh, we can see that.

After all, this is a guy who knocked up Rielle Hunter while running for President of the U.S., and after Elizabeth got cancer. Nothing is off limits.

John is a lawyer, and he just wants every dollar that he can get.

Scum pure scum. He probably needed to supply his ho hunter with some dope. She a known doper. So, $350 was a good hit. Or, maybe this POS needed a haircut. Regardless, this bastard should pay back all the money he stole from the campaign to give to his ho hunter. Edwards is a scumbag extraordinaire. Put him in jail now!

John Edwards Quotes

I am and have been willing to take any test necessary to establish the fact that I am not the father of any baby, and I am truly hopeful that a test will be done so this fact can be definitively established.
