Don’t Get Any Ideas, John Edwards

In this mug shot released by the U.S. Marshals Service June 15, 2011, Former U.S. Senator John Edwards (D-NC) is seen. Edwards plead not guilty June 3, 2011 to charges of using campaign funds to help hide a mistress and the baby he had with her.

The Sodom and Gomorrah that is New York City may have started to consider forgiving its horny, disgraced politicians, but North Carolina is a place with a moral center: A new poll finds that 67 percent of voters there still have a negative opinion of John Edwards. Somehow, 15 percent view him favorably, but maybe they just forgot about the whole “having a love child while your wife is dying of cancer and you’re running for president, and then covering it up” thing.
