Oleaginous, ambulance-chasing crook, Democrat Socialist working-man’s hero, and all-around contemptible shitweasel John Edwards has found a way to keep himself from being shuffled on off to the Big House where he belongs:
GREENSBORO, N.C. Ex-presidential candidate John Edwards has a serious heart condition that will require a medical procedure next month and his illness limits his travel including for an upcoming court case over possible campaign violations, his doctor told a judge, who delayed the trial.
Federal Judge Catherine Eagles did not disclose the exact nature of Edwards’ illness Friday or what procedure he needed. However, she said the two-time presidential candidate had “three episodes” and indicated his condition could be life-threatening if left untreated.
A cardiologist for the 58-year-old ex-North Carolina senator wrote two letters about his condition to Eagles, who talked about them during a hearing to consider whether the trial on six felony and misdemeanor counts should begin this month. Eagles said jury selection will now start March 26, at the earliest.
Edwards is taking medication and is scheduled to undergo a procedure in February from which it will take several days to recover, Eagles said. She did not describe what the episodes involved or if the procedure would require unclogging arteries or other common treatments. The doctor’s letters and other medical records have been kept under seal by the court.
Gee, he’s got a note from his doctor and everything. HAS to be legit. It’s not as if a slimewad like Edwards would ever stoop to paying people to lie for him, or lie himself, or anything.
His doctor had recommended he not drive or travel, but at the judge’s request, Edwards was in court. He didn’t appear to have any outward signs of illness, though he was without his usual quick smile or bounce in his step.
Well, yeah. The smile and bounciness was mostly before he got caught, see. He has to play a different role now. Why, he might even be willing to feign a little contrition for the cameras at some point, if he thought it’d get him anything.
Lest anyone forget: this sleazy douchebag had a good shot at being the Democrat Socialist criminal conspiracy’s nominee for president, and was their nominee for vice-president. He couldn’t have reached the heights he did without the active complicity and collusion of the liberal media. And the liberal media is still out there, perfectly secure in their immunity from any punishment for their crimes.
