Why does John Edwards not get a pass like other liberal leaders?

I am no defender of John Edwards, he is a shameless trial lawyer who has become a multimillionaire by exploiting accidents and medical negligence.

However, I have seen even worse than Edwards avoid any accountability for their horrific actions because they carry the socialist flag, which gives them free reign to break laws, commit adultery and spit in the face of justice.

Bill Clinton and all the Kennedys (including Arnold) commit adultery as frequently as you or I go to the grocery store. Edwards had an affair with just one woman.

Liberals appointed Jessie Jackson to be the nation's leading race baiter, as you would expect he is not a true minister was ordained via honorary degree, didn't graduate seminary school. Jessie did much worse than Arnold or Edwards, he had a 4 year relationship with an employee, got her pregnant, paid her off with tax-exempt charity money & no one dared to demand an audit of his phony charity, Jessie got a pass because that race card, scares everyone away! Edwards can't play the race card, he is white.

Bill Clinton is an honorary NBA player, commits adultery more often than you or I fill our gas tanks at the service station. Edwards was only with one woman.

Now, Edwards is going to be charged with a crime for using political donations to finance his mistress, huh? Bill and Hillary sold pardons for cash to criminals. committed so many scandals, crimes, frauds and abuses of power, they would shame Bernie Madoff. Charlie Rangle is a tax cheat but will never go to jail, he is above the law.

Edwards political career is over because he did once what Clinton, Jessie and Kennedys have done countless times.

Edwards may go to jail, for a minor fraud, nowhere near as bad as the Clintons ot the Kennedys.

Why doesn't Edwards get a pass? Edwards supports socialism, he has assaulted the medical community, done his part as a loyal socialist to undermine our health care system, assisted Obama to take over 1/6th of our economy, to be controlled by government.

I really do not get it, we have seen countless liberals escape crimes and adultery but John Edwards does not get a pass. Is it because he is white, are socialists racists?

Is the "vote for me, my wife is dying"card most powerful, ranks higher than the almighty "race card"?

Liberals are above the law except Edwards, why doesn't he get a pass?

    No one got prosecuted for adultery.

    On any side.

    Edwards doesn't get a pass because he did something against the law. Not a moral or religious law, but a secular, regular, mess up of campaign finance law, he put his money in the wrong place.

    That's its, and its not a major deal, unless there is more than I've heard so far, usually its a fine.

    Rarely have I heard of jail time.

    No one is above the law, but the law is more complex than you may be aware of, for instance Rangel didn't cheat on his taxes or evade them, the law is just not there for those charges, they underpay, and may go to court, they have accountants and tax problems but that isn't the same as

    Snipes for instance who went to jail because the fool didn't pay anything at all. The IRS doesn't like that. Madoff went for fraud. Jackson uses religion to hide money, so does the Catholic church, this country won't pick on one over another because religion is a touchy subject here.

    The legal definitions of avoidance and evasion are different and have different penalties.

    No matter what the political slant of the people are.

    Are you kidding me? You're attacking Bill Clinton? You do realize the man who was relentlessly trying to impeach him , Newt Gingrich, was cheating on his wife at the time? Not only that, Newt's wife found out, they had a divorce, and now he's married to his previous mistress. He is running for President.

    John McCain was cheating on his wife while she was in the hospital bed sick from Cancer. He also left his wife and married his mistress. Ran for President 2008

    RNC Chairman Michael Steel with other Republicans ran up a 14,000 Tab using Campaign funds at a Lesbian Bondage Strip club in LA last summer.

    "get get a pass like other liberal leaders?"

    Well, that would assume that he is a "liberal leader," false, and that anyone is getting any sort of "pass," also false.

    By the way, "He cheated on his wife that was dying of cancer, he is way worse then the other people," would appear to be about Newt Gingrich.

    You may think that "Liberals appointed Jessie Jackson..." but here's a proud second generation liver to tell we appointed that BS artist nothing.

  • It's not just liberals. I'm still waiting for the arrests of the Bush/Cheney criminals. They did far worse things than adultery.

    Nobody is above the law.

    Certainly NOT John Edwards!

    But this crap happens on both sides of the political spectrum, wouldn't you agree?

    At least his affair was with a person of the opposite sex.

    Conservatives males like the men's bathroom pick-up location.
