NC judge to look at help Edwards aide gave to feds

Tuesday, September 13th, 2011

HILLSBOROUGH, NC (AP) — A North Carolina judge plans a hearing on whether a former John Edwards aide who wrote about the two-time presidential candidate’s extramarital affair violated a court order by sharing information with federal prosecutors.

The News & Observer of Raleigh reported that Superior Court Judge Mike Morgan ruled that lawyers for Edwards’s mistress Rielle Hunter had enough evidence to pursue criminal contempt charges against Andrew Young, his wife, and their attorneys.

Morgan stressed Monday he was only agreeing there was enough evidence to justify another hearing on the issue.

Federal prosecutors accuse Edwards of using political contributions to cover up the affair. Edwards denies the criminal charges.

Hunter’s state court lawsuit aims to reclaim from the Youngs a videotape that purportedly shows her having sex with Edwards.

Tuesday, September 13th, 2011

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — The North Carolina Museum of Art will show an exhibit of Rembrandts that curators say has the most authentic works from the artist’s American collections that have ever been assembled.

“Rembrandt in America” will open Oct. 30 at the museum, which organized the exhibit. It will open at the Cleveland Museum of Art on Feb. 19, 2012, and at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts on June 24, 2012.

The exhibit will explore how American collectors desired Rembrandt paintings, creating critical research about the Dutch artist’s work. It will include more than 30 autographed paintings by Rembrandt on loan from private collections and more than two dozen American art museums.

Americans began collecting Rembrandts in the late 19th century, when wealthy industrialists began acquiring his works.
