Federal Grand Jury Indicts John Edwards; Update: Edwards to Plead Not Guilty to All Charges

At the moment, the Washington Post’s story is only one sentence long:

RALEIGH, N.C. — A federal grand jury has indicted two-time presidential candidate John Edwards

I would not want to go to prison with a nickname like Silky Pony.

If Edwards does in fact end up doing time, will he be put up in a minimum security country club facility where “Pink Sapphire” is a salon and not the name of his cellmate? We’ll see how it plays out.

This Star News editorial, written before the indictment, is a reminder that the victims in the John Edwards saga are Edwards’ children:

Regardless of whether this case makes its way to court or fizzles with nary a charge, one has to feel for Edwards’ children – both those he raised with his wife and his daughter with Hunter. They are certainly not at fault for their father’s behavior, but unfortunately they will be saddled with his baggage.

Ed Morrissey at Hot Air has an analysis of the charges.

Update: Edwards’ attorney said he’ll plead not guilty to all charges — except the count that accuses him of being exquisitely exfoliated.
