John Edwards is a free man

Posted By on Wed, Jun 13, 2012 at 3:45 PM

The Justice Department has decided not to retry John Edwards on charges that he violated campaign law by having money funneled to his mistress to silence her during his run for the White House. His trial ended with an acquittal on one charge and a hung jury on the others.

Correct decision.
