4:35 pm
expenses, whether that violated campaign financing laws and whether they were from a friend used to finance his wife. he said i was a bad husband, but not a bad politician. >> they are living together, including elizabeth edwards's children. >> her two children he has custody of. i don't know how much time. they have been keeping a low profile. they bought a house in a hidden area. specifically to stay away from the press. >> here is facing criminal charges, but is it to say that a lot of people want to see him pay for moral reasons. cheating on his cancer-striken wife and all the while lying about all of it. >> it's a risky move because he refewed to take a plea deal. he wants to be cleared. the public is very much against him. he cheated in one of the worst
