GREENSBORO, N.C. — More than four years after John Edwards halted his presidential bid in a hurricane-ravaged New Orleans neighborhood, the wreckage of his campaign pulls into a Greensboro courtroom on Monday for its final stop.
Prosecutors and defense attorneys are expected to give their opening statements in Edwards' trial on six charges that he violated campaign finance regulations when wealthy donors provided nearly $1 million to hide Rielle Hunter, his pregnant mistress, during the 2008 run for the White House.
