The Is It Wrong page has been updated with a new subject: Vice-President Joe Biden.
Connecticut’s state legislature passed a bill Monday that makes racial profiling a crime. When asked who the new law targets, the state’s Attorney General said “usually a white male between the ages of 25 and 55, in the law enforcement community, or the legal professions.” The state Attorney General was immediately arrested under the new law.
The rest of the world moans in agony….
The Royal Canadian Mounted Police have retrieved a memory card that may contain evidence in the death of a woman who fell from a hang glider. Lenami Godinez-Avila fell hundreds of feet to her death during a tandem hang-gliding flight with an instructor. William Jonathan Orders, 50, the hang gliding instructor who was arrested and charged with obstructing justice, apparently removed the memory card from an on-board video camera and swallowed it.
The wife of a former aide to one-time presidential candidate John Edwards testified that she and her husband were in a McDonald’s drive-through when Andrew Young told her he was going to claim the candidate’s mistress and love child as his own.
“I was mad. I was upset. Of course I said, ‘Absolutely Not!’ I screamed at him. I cursed at him.” But Cheri Young said she went along with the plan after a conference call between herself, her husband, Edwards, and mistress Rielle Hunter. “They explained to me how John’s presidency would be good for the country, how important it was that the campaign keep going, and exactly how much money there was in it for me.”
She said Edwards assured her that using nearly a million dollars in donations to hide his pregnant mistress during the 2008 presidential campaign was legal. “Of course I believed him, because it was a lot of money” Young said.
The Young’s brought Rielle Hunter into their home as a guest to hide her from the media. She said Hunter was an expensive guest, recalling one episode with Hunter at a diner in Aspen, Colorado, when Hunter complained that her Reuben sandwich had the wrong sauce and then called her spiritual adviser and healer for help.
Cheri Young claims she and her husband wrote several checks, including one for $8,000, to help Hunter pay for her spiritual adviser’s services, although on reflection she thinks Hunter may have just been talking into the phone without actually calling anyone.
Edwards is charged with numerous offenses including breaking campaign finance laws, fraud, and would be charged with being a total dickwad if that were illegal. The defense claims the donations were private money from friends who wanted to spare Edwards’ cancer-stricken wife from finding out about the affair. “It really had nothing to do with the entire country finding-out John Edwards was a lying scumbag” Edwards attorney said.
