AP Sources: Edwards E-mails Acknowledge Payments
WASHINGTON – If the case against former presidential candidate John Edwards goes to trial, prosecutors plan to use his own e-mails with a former aide to help prove a key element of their case against him. People familiar with the case told The Associated Press that Edwards and his former speechwriter Wendy Button exchanged e-mails working on a draft statement for him to acknowledge what he had denied publicly — paternity of his out-of-wedlock child, along with knowledge of payments to keep his pregnant mistress in hiding.
