JOHN EDWARDS TRAIL // JURY SELECTION // BREAKING NEWS Jury selection is set to begin Thursday morning for the criminal trial of former presidential candidate John Edwards in Greensboro, North Carolina. Edwards, 58, is accused of secretly obtaining more than $900,000 in illegal campaign funds from two wealthy donors to hide his pregnant mistress during his failed bid for the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination. The federal government says Edwards solicited the money to cover up his affair and child he had with a campaign videographer in order to protect his public image as a devoted family man. The money flowed to Andrew Young, a former campaign aide who initially claimed the baby was his. Young is expected to be a key witness for the prosecution. The mistress, Rielle Hunter, may testify as part of Edwards' defense.
