Radar - Former presidential candidate John Edwards is being investigated by a federal grand jury, probing if he misused campaign funds to pay his mistress, the National Enquirer is reporting in its new issue.

The bombshell report says that at least four former campaign workers for Edwards received subpoenas to testify in Raleigh, N.C.

Edwards' mistress, Rielle Hunter, was on his campaign payroll. He at first denied the affair charge and finally admitted it after the Enquirer caught him in a late-night visit to Hunter's hotel room.

The Enquirer now quotes a source saying the probe is centered around whether Edwards used campaign money to cover up the affair. The IRS is also reportedly involved.

Edwards still denies he is the father of Hunter's baby and his close pal and former campaign aide Andrew Young came forward to claim paternity. But Young's "admission" has been met with severe skepticism. He is not listed as the baby's father on the birth certificate and Hunter has told friends that Edwards is the father.

Strange, why would the investigators from the U.S. Justice Department and the FBI become sources for the National Enquirer tabloid, which usually pays money to its sources for stories?

Don't expect the U. S. Justice Department to investigate in any
real way the people who stole the moneys and then got the bailouts.
The last I heard the Justice Department was busying itself with
investigating how John Edwards spent his campaign money.
Let me give them a clue. One thing he did with the money
was pay for this add, now, he will may go to jail for it.

“One America that does the work, another that reaps the reward. One America that pays the taxes, another America that gets the tax breaks. One America - middle-class America - whose needs Washington has long forgotten, another America - narrow-interest America - whose every wish is Washington's command. One America that is struggling to get by, another America that can buy anything it wants, even a Congress and a president.” quote by John Edwards
