John Edwards' fate turns on legal question

Posted By on Wed, May 23, 2012 at 11:59 AM

The New York Times has written a good explanation of the core legal question in the John Edwards case. Was money paid to support his mistress a political contribution? If not, it could open to the door to all kinds of monetary support to candidates from wealthy people. If so, on the other hand, it could potentially criminalize legitimate behavior.

The jury is in its fourth day of deliberation and continues to ask to review more exhibits.
