John Edwards Indicted for Campaign Finance Violations

You can read the indictment here.  The Washington Post reports on the indictment.  [Update: You can now read my Slate column on the Edwards indictment.  I also talked about it on “To the Point” with Warren Olney.]

I’m not at all sure that if Edwards is convicted that the campaign finance charges will stick.  There may even be constitutional issues.

I will be writing more about this, especially over at the Election Law Blog.  My blog is down right now, maybe because of a surge of traffic from being linked by this NY Times editorial on the Virginia contributions case.
