It’s comforting to know that former Senator John Edwards wears his trademark creepy smile to all photo ops, including but not limited to the taking of mugshots. Eerily reminiscent of Tom DeLay, no?
A little context from CNN’s Political Ticker: “Former U.S. Senator John Edwards, pleaded not guilty last week to conspiracy and campaign law violations in early June. His plea came after a federal grand jury indicted him on six counts, including conspiracy, issuing false statements and violating campaign contribution laws. A grand jury has been investigating whether money given to support Edwards’ mistress, Rielle Hunter, by benefactors of Edwards should have been considered campaign donations, a contention Edwards’ team has disputed.”
