John Edwards, mistress will not testify

Wednesday, May 16th, 2012

GREENSBORO, NC (AP) — Attorneys for John Edwards say they will not call the former presidential candidate or his mistress Rielle Hunter to testify at his campaign corruption trial.

Defense attorneys also told a federal judge they expect to rest their case later Wednesday.

Hunter could have echoed Edwards’ position that he didn’t have direct knowledge of the secret effort to care for her and keep her out of the public eye. But she could have also called more attention to the lies surrounding her affair and pregnancy.

Edwards is accused of masterminding a plan to use money from two wealthy donors to hide his pregnant mistress during his bid for the 2008 White House.

Edwards faces six counts of campaign finance violations. If convicted, he could face up to 30 years in prison.

NC Legislature returns to work, met by protesters

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — The North Carolina Legislature is opening its budget-adjusting session by getting right to work on closing this year’s Medicaid shortfall and considering changes to annexation and gambling laws.

The House and Senate planned to open the so-called “short” session at midday Wednesday.

The Senate scheduled afternoon committees to consider a $205 million plan to eliminate the Medicaid gap and to change laws needed for the Cherokee Indians to offer live dealer games at its casino.

Some of the bills were expected to come to the floor later in the day.

Legislators arrived to protesters representing liberal and union groups who banged on pots and pans to express anger with Republican policies. Many were still unhappy with the Legislature allowing a referendum on gay marriage that voters passed last week.
