John Edwards Mug Shot: Always a Politician ...

by at . Comments

Once a politician, always a politician. Look at that handsome, smiling face.

Going by these images, you'd never expect that former U.S. Senator John Edwards knocked up mistress Rielle Hunter while his wife was terminally ill, lied about it repeatedly, then allegedly covered it up with campaign funds.

But, here we are.

Nice to see John Edwards is still having fun.

Edwards pleaded not guilty to conspiracy and campaign law violations. These mug shots were obtained by CNN. Goooo Freedom of Information Act!

The plea came after a grand jury indicted him on six counts, including conspiracy, issuing false statements and violating campaign finance laws.

The grand jury had been investigating whether money given to support Rielle Hunter by benefactors of Edwards' 2008 run for the presidency.

Their conclusion was that there was enough evidence to charge Edwards, who insists that despite his personal failings, he did not break the law.

A plea deal between Edwards and the U.S. Justice Department fell apart over the the DOJ's requirement that Edwards go to jail. He declined.

Guess he'll roll the dice at trial, where his chances of beating the rap are iffy. In the court of opinion, however, he's long since been convicted.

Looks like a smiling reptile. Did someone say "snake?". Or maybe more like a weasel. The poor kids.
