Dear famous trial lawyers that have an exciting sex life outside of the bonds of their marriage: don’t run for president or vice president. Then your sexual predilections, alleged or otherwise, will not be part of the national discourse.
Yes, we have more potential legal troubles for former presidential candidate John Edwards. DNAinfo is reporting the his name is among the first released in the probe into the client list of “Millionaire Madame” Anna Gristina.
Let’s hope today’s famous trial lawyers don’t have to pay for it….
I don’t like writing about John Edwards cause I feel like I’m going to get cooties just from talking about this joker. But here’s the DNAinfo report:
A call girl working for alleged “Millionaire Madam” Anna Gristina told investigators she was paid to have sex with former U.S. Sen. John Edwards when he was in New York raising money for his failed presidential bid, DNAinfo has learned.
Edwards is the first big name to surface in connection to Gristina’s alleged prostitution scheme run out of an Upper East Side apartment.
His lawyers were contacted by DNAinfo, but did not comment.
According to “On The Inside” sources, Edwards allegedly hooked up with one of Gristina’s high-end hookers in 2007 when the dashing pol from North Carolina brought his then high-flying presidential campaign to the Big Apple.
We can’t be sure if these reports are true, just because what we already know about Edwards makes him such an obvious choice for this kind of story. On the other hand, John Edwards is pretty much at the point where I’d believe just about any sordid sexual detail that came to light.
How do you defend a client when people will believe pretty much anything nasty they hear about him? This guy would need to go to France to get a fair trial at this point. But knowing Edwards, he’d probably crash at Dominique Strauss-Kahn’s house after they went out for a night on the town.
