More bad news for former Presidential candidate John Edwards.
Not only is he facing six felony charges, including four counts of collecting illegal campaign contributions, one count of conspiracy, one count of making false statements and could face up to 30 years in prison, along with a $1.5 million fine ... but now he has been named in a New York City prostitution ring.
According to DNAinfo, Edwards has allegedly been named as a client in New York City’s so-called “Soccer Mom Madam” prostitution scheme.
A call girl working for alleged “Millionaire Madam” Anna Gristina told investigators that she was paid to have sex with Edwards in 2007 when he was in New York raising money for his failed presidential bid.
It seems Edwards allegedly got his freak on at an Upper East Side hotel suite arranged by an aide with help from a New Yorker familiar with Gristina’s prostitution ring.
Gristina has been arrested and is suspected of running a $15 million New York prostitution ring with a “black book” allegedly containing a client list of powerful, wealthy, and politically connected clients.
The problems just keep piling up for Edwards and to think - he could have been President or Vice President!
