WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) - Two-time presidential candidate John Edwards says he has done wrong but did not break the law. He is charged with soliciting and spending more than $925,000 to hide his mistress and their baby from the public at the height of his 2008
White House campaign.
Edwards made a 30-second statement to dozens of reporters
outside a North Carolina federal courthouse after pleading not
guilty to the charges Friday.
He says he will regret the harm he has caused for the rest of
his life. But he says he did not break the law and he never thought
he was breaking the law.
He does not have to post bond, but he had to surrender his
passport and is not allowed to leave the continental U.S.
