Senator John Edwards (DEMOCRAT) Faces 10 Years

Former Senator John Edwards could face up to 10 years in prison and a $10,000 fine if an investigation into his campaign finances yields an indictment, a guilty verdict and the maximum penalty.

Feds a combing through Edward's 2008 campaign checkbook to find out if payments made to his former mistress, Reille Hunter, were illegal.  The campaign paid her more than $100,000 to Hunter, who gave birth in February 2008 to a daughter rumored to be the ex-senator's.

Political experts are predicting that while Edwards probably violated the law, the accounting shell game played using political action committees and a pretext for shooting a professional video, he will get off scot-free. Those in the know are saying that there is no question he shuttled money to his mistress to "take care of her." But proving it amid the accounting games that were played would be very near impossible for the investigators looking into the situation.

People are still angry at Edwards, not just for his infidelity, but also for claiming the mantle of his wife's illness as a part of the reason for his running for President in 2008, and then while he was running, engaging in this kind of conduct.
