John Edwards’ lawyers ask judge to toss charges (access required)

Being a philanderer isn’t against the law and prosecution was politically motivated, they say

Lawyers for John Edwards asked a federal judge last week to throw out criminal charges against the former Democratic presidential candidate. Edwards’ defense team filed five motions saying that federal prosecutors violated his rights under several constitutional amendments. The lawyers argue that the federal indictment against him was unconstitutionally vague and that the charges were pursued by a partisan prosecutor for political gain. They also contend that even if all the facts alleged in the federal indictment were true, he still didn’t commit a crime.
