Check out the family and read more about John’s legal problems after the jump.The indictment ends a two-year federal investigation against the former senator from North Carolina, who allegedly used over $900,000 to cover up an affair and baby he had with campaign aide Rielle Hunter.

“A centerpiece of Edwards’ candidacy was his public image as a devoted family man,” the indictment read. ”

“Edwards knew that public revelation of the affair and the pregnancy would destroy his candidacy by, among other things, undermining Edwards’ presentation of himself as a family man and by forcing his campaign to divert personnel and resources away from other campaign activities to respond to criticism and media scrutiny regarding the affair and pregnancy.”
