Former Senator John Edwards

15 May 2012. Former Senator John Edwards’ eldest daughter and a 30-year-old lawyer, Cate Edwards is  expected to testify Tuesday in a corruption trial which is now in its fourth week. The senator made nearly $1 million in secret payments to help hide his pregnant mistress as he ran for president in 2008.

He claimed trial for six criminal counts, including conspiracy to violate the Federal Election Campaign Act, accepting alleged contributions from two donors that exceeded the limits for his 2008 presidential campaign, and filing false and misleading campaign-finance statements.
