Former Senator and VP and Presidential Candidate John Edwards may very well face criminal charges for his violation of federal campaign laws. He allegedly removed some of his campaign funds to coffers to pay for mistress Rielle Hunter and baby’s expenses. There is evidence put forth by his assistant Andrew Young who confirms what he did, saying he lied for Edwards in a cover up where he claimed to be the babydaddy. The FBI and IRS have done extensive probes, leaving no stone unturned.
That was why Edwards kept denying that he was the babydaddy. But I figured out he was the babydaddy anyway and was the first to call it publicly in the media.
WHY DID HE HAVE TO USE CAMPAIGN FUNDS WHEN HE COULD HAVE DONE SOME SPEAKING AND RAISED THE MONEY?
I don’t know what this Toxic Man didn’t sell some of his assets or do a few speaking gigs to pay for his mess. He made millions and millions of dollars when he was an attorney. He could have spoken to his money manager and worked things out. But in sick mind he may have believed that the mess he got himself into occurred while he was campaigning, so why not have the campaign funds take care of this!
He could no doubt get 50 to 100 thousand dollars per talk and a few talks could have taken care of his financial woes instead of his doing something illegal.
If a jury finds Edwards guilty, could end up being cellmates with Bernie Madoff. It might not be such a bad thing since he is one of few people in the world with whom Edwards shares so much in common. They sociopaths in my view- both liars, heartless, cheaters, soulless creatures who have no feelings of remorse. They even both lost their sons.
CRYING AND SCREAMING SUICIDE BEFORE HE WOULD GO TO JAIL
Apparently, last month, his , legal team told him there was a strong chance he could be indicted. According to sources he “completely lost it” and sobbed non stop and said .”I won’t go to jail. I’d kill myself first.”
Edwards has allegedly mentioned it over and over again that he would rather do himself in than go to prison. This wimp would probably get a maximum of five years and he would be 62 when he got out. He would probably do less time for good behavior so he might even be 60 when he got out.
PRISON MAY NOT BE SO BAD FOR HIM AFTER ALL WITH A MEA CULPA BOOK TOUR TO SATISFY HIS EGO AND POCKETBOOK
Also I am sure they would isolate him so he wouldn’t have to worry about being shived or beaten or being someone’s girlfriend.
He would have plenty of time to relax, work out and exercise, and write his” mea culpa I found Jesus ” book in prison . They might even give him a prison job like picking up trash, cleaning toilets or picking weeds just to humble him a bit. He may even do some jailhouse consulting with other inamtes on their cases. But he has to never have their legal papers in his cell or he will get additonal jailtime.
Since he has no conscience, he wouldn’t be spending anytime crying over Elizabeth or the past. His tears would only be for himself and his predicament. His anger would not be at himself but rather at those horrible people who did this to him. He could never accept any accountability for his actions.
POST PRISON FAME
Also when he got out, there would be the mea culpa tour to feed his ego and put him back in the limelight to promote the book he would have written in prison. He will no doubt have found Jesus and become a minister of sorts and preach the gospel of forgiveness on his media tour.
Then could convince himself that he is loved by the public and that all is forgiven. Even though the reality is that most will hate him, his kids – legitimate and illegitimate will probably forgive him and love him. It might be harder for the oldest daughter though as she was old enough to see what torture he put her mother through.
He could get 50 to 100 K a pop for lectures on the lay speaking circuit or the religious speaking circuit, He could be speaking about how bad he was and how he destroyed so many lives by his cheating and how Satan made him do it. He can say how Satan made him break Elizabeth’s heart which killed her. He can then say how now that Jesus is in his life full-time he is a changed man . He can tell us how being in prison made him take a good hard look at himself and see the light.It may sound repulsive but there are many public speakers out there who have been cheats and swindlers who have written books on how bad they once were and ended up in prison and now make a good living at telling the world to give them a second chance int he world.
Characterwise they are often still the same and just found another way to manipulate people. Edwards is no doubt the same type.
HE MAY EVEN GET A REALITY SHOW – WHY NOT? OTHER BADLY BEHAVED PEOPLE HAVE IT SO WHY NOT JOHN?
Who knows, he may also be offered a reality show. Look at how bad behavior appears to be rewarded these days from Charlie Sheen to Kate Gosselin. The teen moms can beat up on their babydaddys and all sorts of drama can occur complete with jail time and they still have a show.
Kate Gosselin can beat up on her husband, verbally abuse her kids and lie all over the airwave, be obnoxious and still gets rewarded with a show, a DWTS appearance, and co-hosting the View. The same thing can happen to Edwards. Having a show would feed his ego and his pocketbook.
Since he has had so much experience as a politician, he could be a political advisor to some up and coming candidates and share his knowledge with them.
READ HANDS ON DAD AND NOT JUST A PHOTO OP ONE
Most important of all when he gets out, he could be a real hands on father not just a photo op for political pictures dad. He can go to recitals and plays and ball games with his kids, who will still be of ball game and recital age. He can make amends and do right by them- especially with his oldest and already grown daughter.
He could help the kids with their homework and watch them grow. He may even decide to have more babies with Rielle or with someone else he finds more fetching and more “Christian” now that he has a new image to uphold.
NEEDS TO THINK THROUGH HIS FINAL ACT
But obviously Edwards is too small minded to think these things through. He obviously has a pattern of not thinking things through like his cheating with Rielle and how it would devastate Elizabeth and his not admitting the baby was his, which will have last repercussions on the baby as she matures.
Clearly he is not thinking through his suicide plan either. Suicide is not the answer. If he is depressed then he needs to get some antidepressants and a good shrink to work things out.
He actually could turn his life around. While it will be an embarrassment for his kids to have a dad who is a convicted felon, who fell from grace, if he lives they can at least say they have a dad.
It will be even more heart wrenching for them to know that they had a weak coward of a dad who was so selfish that he did himself in during hard times, rather than have a future with them.
Edwards may want to meet with Reverend Jim Baker of Jim and Tammy Faye fame, who had a similar fate. He went to prison, came out, got remarried, started a new family, lectures and is doing quite well these days.
IF HE KILLS HIMSELF HE NEEDS TO LEAVE HIS ORGANS TO OTHERS
But if Edwards insists on being his selfish stubborn foolish TOXIC self and makes good on his suicide threat when he is indicted, I hope that at least he will do one unselfish act for once in his life-give his organs to others.
Each of his kidneys , heart, lungs, corneas, pituitary gland, ear bones, jaw bone, facial skin, body skin, heart, and other organs can be used to save or better someone’s life.
Maybe then can he not only get some of the respect back from others but some self-respect, if there is any after a person commits suicide. www.drlillianglass.com
