John Edwards

Former U.S. Democratic presidential hopeful John Edwards and his daughter, Cate Edwards, depart from the U.S. District Court in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, June 3, 2011. Edwards was indicted last week for using nearly $1 million in illegal campaign funds to help cover up an extramarital affair during his White House bid. In a fall from grace for a man once expected to go far in American politics, Edwards, 57, was charged with six counts, including conspiracy, illegal campaign contributions and making false statements, according to the federal indictment.Reuters/Davis Turner
